The film has a promising opening sequence............
The film really starts with C.I.A. Agent 'Ethan Renner'(Kevin Costner)being told he has just a few months to live.
He decides he wants to make up for lost time by living in 'Paris' where estranged wife 'Christine' (Connie Nielsen)
and daughter 'Zooey' (Hailee Steinfeld) who he'd been away from for the past five years, absent husband absent
father.
He is approached by Agent 'Vivi Delay' (Amber Heard) who offers him a life-saving experimental drug in exchange
for his services, of course there is a large wad of cash involved, which 'Ethan' see's as some security for his
daughter, though initially reluctant, the carrot offered is just too good to pass up.
'Ethan' is a very efficient operator, he's good at what he does for the Agency, he kills.
The prime targets for 'Ethan' is the 'Albino' (Tomas Lemarquis) who he'd encountered on an earlier mission and 'The
Wolf' (Richard Sammel)
The drug that has been given to 'Ethan' has it's side-effects, 'Vivi' tells him that the effects will level out by drinking vodka.
'Vivi' tells 'Ethan' that the job now has to be completed in just three days.
In between 'Ethan' try's to understand and get to know his daughter 'Zooey' whilst 'Christine' is away for a few days, and
when he's not, he's trying to extract the information that will lead him to the targets.
'Ethan' does have concerns that his daughter may be used to get to him which leads to him being very protective of her.
As the temperature and pace rises the body-count begins to stack up as he closes in on the terrorist targets 'The Albino'
and 'The Wolf.

The comparisons here to ‘Taken’ are too hard not to tick off when you watch it. First of all we have the aging, cantankerous but ultimately deadly action hero played by Kevin Costner. While he is no Liam Neeson’s Brian Mills, Costner delivers a fine performance as the stereotypical agent with a chip on his shoulder, grumbling lines and showcasing his hidden skill when the danger escalates. Sadly burdened by the effects of the cancer eating away at him, most of his performance is riddled with slow and steady moments of hallucinations, cold sweats and hacking coughs. It’s effective, but just there to serve a purpose that we know he is dying. It almost limits Costner from what he could really deliver should he be rid of a character flaw that doesn’t REALLY pose a threat, it’s just there as a bargaining tool.

Next we have the backdrop of Paris. A favourite for action films of late, the European map. Lots of sneering French villains and hectic traffic chases are a plenty. It doesn’t detract from the story, but it’s just a too familiar setting. Run down houses and posh hotels are the setting for the action and we’ve seen it all before.

Finally it’s the family man trying to build bridges with his family, a casualty of his dangerous career. Here we do have a gorgeous Connie Nielsen who looks fantastic but does little sadly, and a fiery Hailee Steinfeld as the cliché daughter; all attitude, no compassion. That is until Dad can prove himself and finally have her call him…Dad, not Ethan. Again, we’ve seen it all before and it’s just another device to add a bit of humanity to our star and give him something else to fight for rather than just his job.

I guess there were a handful of similar scripts bouncing around the industry at the same time, this shares a fair bit with the likes of Taken and The Expatriate but as I liked them and thought the trailer looked good, I felt on fairly steady ground with their latest incarnation. I find Costner very likeable and he didn't disappoint. The screenplay is a little offbeat, quirky even, in that it deals with the well-worn path of CIA guy routing out the bad guys in Europe but it touches on Costner’s relationship with his ex and their daughter. The story isn't anything new but Costner plays an engaging character, a hardman who has reason to be more weary than most. The Parisian locations are a treat and the humorous tone compliments the slick, outlandish action; there's a great explosion right at the start and the final action segment is really well handled due to some decent production values. Some bits didn't work so well for me, Amber Heard spruces the place up but her confused character might as well be in a different movie altogether. Connie Nielsen is comfortable as Costner's ex and although the family segments slow things down a bit, they have reason to be in the movie and I didn't feel as though the scenes got in the way of the overall story. I particularly like how Costner's secret work is interupted from time to time and how his nature changes so much that when he bundles some schmo into a car boot for the third time, he's concerned enough to make sure the guy is comfortable.

This is the first time i have commented on a film.
It doesn't matter how many times you polish it. A turd is always a turd.
The story was all over the place and as for amber heard's character. what was the point!!!!
the script was just awful, i hope the actors where paid a lot because there was nothing to work with.
I wasted 2 hours of my life
