Synopsis

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.

  • 4 stars "Would have given this 5 stars if it hadn't strayed so far from the book. Overall though Rapp was exactly as I imagined and so was Keaton in the parts they played. Don't understand all the tree hugger remarks, what were they expecting to see?? My wife enjoyed the movie and hasn't read any of the books which unfortunately there will be no more as the excellent writer Mr Flynn has passed."
  • 5 stars "OMG..... many of you who watched this and made it a one star only because it was a action movie. what did you expect to see BAMBI? Don't go see a action movie, watch a cartoon . Those one stars are about politics and your own fear of reality . In case you haven't been paying attention this stuff has increased all over our wonderful country and the world. God bless all those people in Las Vegas, Texas and more but don't blame the action movie. If you want to blame the movie industry then blame the never ending movies that have kids telling off their parents , kids using the f--- bomb in almost every movie that has kids in it. And NO they don't promote terrorist acts, that's going to happen because they hate us. But it might keep you from burying you head in the sand and stay alert . Have a nice day"
