About the Film
Michael Mason (Richard Madden, 'Game of Thrones') is an American pickpocket living in Paris who finds himself hunted by the CIA when he steals a bag that contains more than just a wallet. Sean Briar (Idris Elba, 'Luther', 'Prometheus'), the field agent on the case, soon realizes that Michael is just a pawn in a much bigger game and is also his best asset to uncover a large-scale conspiracy. Going against commands, Briar recruits Michael to use his expert pickpocketing skills to help quickly track down the source of the corruption. As a 24hr thrill ride ensues, the unlikely duo discover they are both targets and must rely upon each other in order to take down a common enemy.
Feeling bored with nothing to watch I downloaded this to give it a go. I'm a fan of Luther and Indris Elba so thought this film should be ok.
This is a great film - in a Jason Bourne style action theme but better, more earthy, less glossy.
The tempo of the film is relentless with plot twists you don't see coming and edge of the cliff scenarios that keep you guessing.
Idris Elba has been linked to the James Bond role and on the basis of Luther it was unlikely. However, on the basis of this film Idris is a genuine contender if Daniel Craig hangs up his tuxedo anytime soon.
Well worth renting. If you like Jason Bourne though, then buy this, it's better.
A good movie ruined by the end credits!
OMG! "Sing the feem toon"… Idris is new Denis Waterman? Talk about siezing defeat from the jaws of victory! A cool film that ends in complete squirming embarrassment.
Worth watching but, for the love of God, turn off before the end credits roll. Ego much, Mr Elba?
I don't get the low star rating reviews, I was almost put off watching because of them.
A great film for its type, perfectly paced across an hour and a half (are you reading James Bond producers and all the other over long movies!).
Great realistic action a la Bourne, no CGI, totally unbelievable yawn fest.
If you like a good thriller action movie to just kick back and watch, then look no further.
