Black ops recruit Mitch Rapp (Dylan O'Brien) is reeling from the death of his fiancée in a terrorist attack when he is assigned to shadowy CIA figure Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton) to receive special training in tracking terrorists. Rapp and Hurley are then dispatched to join a Turkish agent on a mission to stop a mysterious operative from unleashing chaos of international proportions.



  • Awful. Dull. Bad acting.

    The books aren’t amazing, but this is dross. Couldn’t be further away from any semblance of believability. The lead actor isn’t remotely a suitable candidate. Wooden. Unbelievable. Not remotely passable in the role. Save your money, wait for Netflix or give it a miss. Hopefully if they make another one they’ll skip forward 15 years and use the original authors choice of actor!

    Ridiculous story, poorly acted with a very unlikable, uncharismatic main character played by Dylan O'Brien.
  • A waste a some good actors

    By Aardvarks
    A waste a some good actors. The end of the movie is in particuarly poor taste given the horrendous record of the CIA in the affairs of that particular country (among others).

  • Slow film

    By Sub 0
    Very slow and predictable film.
  • Every spy film ever made!

    By Ch1ppers42
    If you’ve ever seen a spy film then you’ve basically seen this, the “twists” are obvious and don’t add to the story, full of cliche lines that were unnecessary, I rented and tbh I still begrudge the price I paid for the entertainment value.
  • Great Film, Dubious Scenes Towards The End...

    By Richie 1963
    Really good to watch in most respects, however the boat scene coupled with apocalyptic shots were incredibly poor- effects , ridiculous outcome etc. Solid cast and god action until the closing stuff as above. It's almost as though someone else shot/directed edited towards the end?
  • Painful

    By Tomas4472
    Very poor overall - story and quality of action. Waste of money and time.
  • Disappointing film, American macho PR

    By Michiel70
    Was hoping for something better with Michael Keeton, but this is an utter waste of time. It is so predictable, that you’d only watch this if you’re American or you get excited about the American dominance against all odds. You know, like the Rocky or Rambo films of old.
  • Very poor

    By marksteel
    Have read all the Mitch Rapp books - this story is muddled, the scenes confused, acting poor, special effects poor. No comparison to Bourne films, which is pity as books are excellent.
