American Assassin (2017)

Here's an action movie. American. Spy stuff. Professional style. Realistic in a gray way. Dark. Pretty violent. Pretty mediocre. Pretty good but... not particularly memorable? The final scene was something else, but apart from that I'm not sure this one will stay in my mind a long time.

Dylan O'Brien was good in the lead role though, and Michael Keaton! In a movie like this?! I wouldn't have expected it, but he fits right in. In his role he looks a bit like Kevin Costner and... Luke Goss? The main actors were great, the girls too, the rest... decent.

I think the main flaw in this movie, to me, is lack of emotion. It could have had more of that. It could have evolved the characters more. The initial vibe's similar to the one in Atomic Blond, yet it just never warms up.

Well it warms up a little, but it still seems to take place in just a cold, concrete, modern world. Even when there's woods and water I don't really like how they make it out to be. Maybe just because it doesn't take me away from reality... it's all the same. It's dull. Good action, good act, good movie, but it doesn't really stand out. It is what it is.

 rated 3/5: not bad
