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.

Ethan (Kevin Costner) has sacrificed his relationship with his family to be a super spy for the CIA. On his most recent assignment he was to kill "The Albino" (Tomas Lemarquis) while Vivi (Amber Heard) was to kill the Wolf (Richard Sammel). Ethan breaks down as his brain cancer has entered his lungs. He is given 3-5 months to live.

Ethan returns to his Parisian apartment only to discover a poor family of squatters from Africa living there with the police unwilling to evict them. He attempts to reestablish his relationship with his estranged wife playing the death card and that of his daughter, by not telling her.

Vivi shows up with an experimental drug that may work, but in doing so he must renege on his promise to his wife and kill "The Wolf" as he is the only man who has seen him. Ethan now attempts to re-establish his estranged relationship with his moody teen daughter while trying to kill the world's most wanted man...and on occasion using parenting advice from people he is attempting to extract information.

I love a film that shows originality and good dialogue. Amber Heard played a great, even if unrealistic, femme fatale noir. The film breaks from the formula of utilizing the daughter as an asset. It is a funny heartwarming action film. Something for everyone.

Parental Guide: 1 written f-bomb, 1 in background music lyrics. No sex. Brief rear nudity

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.

I bought this due to making an order up...and although the movie was ok it was nothing special...My Opinion.!!!...but I'm not going to review the movie but the disc itself,sound and picture quality...The picture was ok but nothing outstanding...I would say a lower greade Blu Ray...but the worst of all was the sound...This was echoey throughout the movie ( playing the extended version ) as if the actors where in a chamber ..thats the best way of describing it..AND NO...it was not my system...I couldn't even stop it with any adjustment...Playing the Theatrical version helped a little, but it was still noticeable..puzzling that because I've never encountered this before with any other Blu Rays..However...If you just watch this via a TV you'll not notice but run it through a 5.1 and it will be very noticeable...Cheers
