Synopsis


American Assassin
A young CIA recruit named Mitch Rapp (Dylan O'Brien) trains to become a black-ops counterterrorism agent under the tutelage of Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton), a fearsome warrior and legend within the agency. While Hurley advises never to make the mission personal, Rapp remains haunted by the death of his fiancée in a terrorist attack. Eventually, the two men must work together to stop a rogue operative from sowing chaos in the Middle East. Directed by Michael Cuesta, American Assassin is based on the novel of the same name by Vince Flynn. ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

    A very good action movie

    This starts out as a standard revenge driven action movie stemming from an unexplained attack and killing. The government spy agencies like what they see in this "man on a mission" and decide to try to recruit him. In comes Michael Keaton as a trainer and overseer for the young recruit, and as with most movies like this, things don't always go as planned, and it has some nice plot twists along the way. This also has a very satisfying ending, and it was nice to see Michael Keaton continue his move toward not so likeable characters, which is a good thing.

    This was a blind buy, as I had not seen this movie previously and did not hear anything about it. I don’t even remember seeing this come out in the theaters. As such, I enjoyed this movie a lot. Lots of action and pretty good cast. The plot is predictable, but you don’t watch these types of movies for the story. You watch it for the action and the escapism of reality and everyday life. This is a great, entertaining action movie. I’m glad to add it to my collection.

    The uprising star Dylan O'Brien, really puts action into a whole new level as a CIA operative Mitch Rapp! And Michael Keaton was incredible! I was impressed when I saw it in theaters, and it has really made it up to my list of top movies! If you like franchises from Tom Clancy, the Bourne Saga, Mission Impossibe, and others, then this is your chance to own such a great movie in a collection piece. I believe they left the doors open for a whole new franchise with this new fictional character Mitch Rapp!

    "American Assassin" follows young CIA recruit Mitch Rapp as he brings the fight to the terrorists! Based on the Chronological first book in the Mitch Rapp series by Vince Flynn, it stars Dylan O'Brien as our hero, Michael Keaton (Batman, Mr. Mom) Co-Stars as Rapp's instructor, Stan Hurley. While significantly different from the book of the same name, it is a great introduction to what will hopefully become Hollywood's next action movie franchise. James Bond? Who's he?

    From the onset this moving-picture lives up to its promise: Action – Thriller in Spades. Lots of action coupled with an abundant and ample story-line. The Dolby ATMOS is tailored perfectly to the movies’ superb sound-effects and sound-track package putting the audience in the center of it all – lots of viewer fulfillment. The movie is a “keeper” and it warrants future views.

    No, it didn't strictly follow the book but I like that they modernized it a bit. I think the essence of the story is still there. I hope they continue to use Dylan O'Brien in future Mitch Rapp movies, I thought he captured that character perfectly. And Michael Keaton is just so good in everything he has ever done including this. I think he had Stan Hurley dialed in exactly how Vince Flynn wrote him.

    Having read the summary of the original novel, it was clear that this film adaptation was updated for a more current scenario. Despite the changes, it was a very enjoyable film, full of great action and some good twists. There were some elements that were a bit hard to believe, but that's pretty much any flick these days. Overall I'd recommend it for those who enjoy spy/military thrillers.

    A new super spy franchise is born. AUTHOR Vince Flynn best seller books on his super CIA spy battles terrorists . This prequel story introduced after about a dozen previous books became popular. Like BOND , BOURNE , RAPP takes you globe trotting in search of enemies to eliminate. Should see this before the future episodes begin.
