      Default The Foreigner-Review

      Venue: Dubai Marina Mall, Reel Cinemas, 8:50 pm 10th Oct
      Status: About 80%

      Jackie Chan has been one of my all-time favourite actors, for his stunts and amazing comic timing. So when news surfaced of this movie, I didn't hesitate, especially after its intriguing trailer and that too with the suave Pierce Brosnan for company.

      The movie traces how Ngoc Minh Quan (Chan), determined to find out who murdered his daughter in an explosion, crosses paths with Liam Hanessy (Brosnan), whose motivations seem more sinister than beneath the surface.

      The plot isn't anything novel, with terrorism being the focal point, but Martin Campbell keeps us glued to our seats, maintaining a top-notch pace throughout. Yet the events unfolding are eerily reminiscent of recent developments in London. The true highlight of the movie is the contrasting yet terrific performances of Chan and Brosnan. Chan in particular channels his grief and emotions brilliantly, bringing us another untold side of his talents. Brosnan, on the other hand, sinks his teeth into a character with multiple shades of grey effectively and makes us both hate his arrogance but also feel (a touch) sorry for him.

      The background score is minimal. Performances from other cast members are nothing to write home about. Fight scenes are as entertaining as ever, and its amazing to see how fit as a fiddle Chan is (63 years old??) yet at the same time the realistic nature of the scenes is also praiseworthy.

      Overall, grab tickets if you are a fan of thrillers and of Jackie Chan and Brosnan. This tale will certainly not leave you bored!

      Verdict: Above Average
      Rating: 3/5
