‘The Foreigner’ Takes audiences on a strange ride
I am a big Jackie Chan fan. Many of his films are quite good, but he has made some bad ones too. When I heard of The Foreigner I wasn’t sure if it would be good or not. I was able to see this film early and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for The Foreigner here:
Quan is a humble London businessman whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge-fueled vendetta when the only person left for him to love — his teenage daughter — dies in a senseless act of politically motivated terrorism. His relentless search to find the terrorists leads to a cat-and-mouse conflict with a British government official whose own past may hold the clues to the identities of the elusive killers.
The Foreigner gets 6.5/10. It was an okay movie, but far from perfect. The plot is not that strong, and takes a good while to begin to make sense. It also drags on, and many times shifts in ways that aren’t always easy to follow. There was some good funny moments, and the action scenes are pretty well done. Overall not a terrible film, but not one you need to run out and see either. To learn more about The Foreigner click on this website.
