Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Denzel Washington, Brendan Gleeson, Sam Shepard, Vera Farmiga, Robert Patrick, Liam Cunningham, Ruben Blades, Fares Fares, Nora Arnezeder

Directed by: Daniel Espinosa

The plot: Agent Matt Weston is caretaker of a CIA safe house in Cape Town. Humdrum routine is thrown into disarray by the arrival of grizzled agent Daniel Kiefer with a prisoner: rogue operative Tobin Frost, who famously sold out the agency to the highest bidder. In the middle of a highly charged interrogation, the building's defences are compromised by a gang of gun-toting thugs led by Vargas. Matt escapes the hail of bullets with Tobin, bundling the prisoner into the boot of a car.

what the others say


"Tolerably exciting spycraft, but stuck with a see-through plot. Washington and Reynolds are watchable, but not exactly stretched by these roles."

Little White Lies

"Intermittently enjoyable but often dull. And too bloody loud."

Time Out

"While director Espinosa hones in on the ambiguous battle between Weston's idealism and Frost's cynicism, British cinematographer Oliver Wood - who filmed the last two Bourne movies - shoots the hell out of everything."
