4.0 out of 5 stars Above average thriller, 17 Aug 2013
This review is from: The Expatriate [DVD] (DVD)
This film is set in Belgium, the European Community's heart of darkness, but the bad guys as usual turn out to be an American Corporation and the CIA.
Aaron Eckhart plays the expatriate who works for a security company testing the efficiency of their systems. One morning he comes in for work and the company has disappeared. With his daughter he travels to the head office in Brussles to find that they deny all knowledge of him or his workplace. By now of course the alarm bells are ringing anmd before you know it a former colleague tries to kill him.
Of course we soon discover that this expatriate is an ex-CIA wet ops operative and it all gets very exciting.
I'm pleased to say that the director avoids the obvious device of a big set piece car chase and goes for a more realistic and gritty storyline in the vein of the Bourne films.
Aaron Eckhart makes a plausible action hero and it all makes for an enjoyable thriller.
