Movie Review: The Foreigner

The Foreigner (2017 film).jpgJackie Chan plays Ngoc Minh Quan, a former Vietnam War special operations forces soldier who was trained by the US Army, is a restaurant owner and family man. When his daughter (his two other daughters and wife were murdered by Thai pirates) is killed by a bomb, he seeks out those responsible and makes them pay.

Going up against Liam Hennessy (played by Pierce Brosnan), the current Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland and a former member of the IRA.

As Quan unravels the clues to those involved, he finds more at stake than just his daughter’s life and revenge.

I liked the movie but it felt like something was missing. I would’ve liked to have seen more cat and mouse type scenes between Brosnan and Chan – maybe even a showdown seen. Overall, not a bad movie but wasn’t thrilled with it either.

My rating 3.5 stars out of 5

Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
