When Mitch Rapp (Dylan O'Brien) was 14, his parents were killed in a fiery car crash. Life became difficult for him at that point. He began to develop behavioral problems and was kicked out of three boarding schools.

Just as Mitch finally has his life together, he asks his girlfriend to marry him at a beautiful beach resort. Suddenly the beach is flooded with armed men, shooting everyone in sight, including his girlfriend. Mitch survives, but once again, he's lost everything. He decides to join a new group of clandestine operatives formed by the CIA to combat Islamic terrorism.

Mitch wants only one thing — retribution, making him an ideal candidate.

Based on the bestselling novel by author Vince Flynn.

  • 3 stars "Not much can say, just average."
  • 5 stars "I liked this movie and I enjoyed it all the way through. The younger man stole the show. There was action throughout. The ending was not predictable. The opening terrorist activity scene was short. The Las Vegas shooter had been amassing firearms for quite some time, according to news reports. This is a good movie to see in a theater. I recommend."
  • 1 star "Bad acting, to much violence that was unnecessary to the story. When will we see better stories?? Even M. Keaton was annoying. Walked out in fourth quarter of movie and sat in on American Made...much better movie."
