The Foreigner


When his daughter is killed in a bombing that a rogue part of the IRA takes responsibility for, Ngoc Minh Quan (Jackie Chan) goes after the Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland (Pierce Brosnan) to learn who the terrorists are. Former Bond director Martin Campbell reunites with Brosnan from GoldenEye (1995) for this action-thriller, and the star is a good choice to play the former IRA terrorist turned peacemaker who has to navigate rough waters. But the real star of the movie is Chan whoā€™s given a meatier role than weā€™re used to as the grieving Vietnam War veteran. Far from believable but too engaging to dismiss, with good action scenes.

2017-Britain-China. 113 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Martin Campbell. Novel: Stephen Leather (ā€The Chinamanā€). Cast: Jackie Chan (Ngoc Minh Quan), Pierce Brosnan (Liam Hennessy), Michael McElhatton (Jim Kavanagh), Liu Tao, Charlie Murphy, Orla Brady.
