Review

The clock’s still ticking… The frenetic, real-time thriller is revived like Jack Bauer’s lifeless carcass has been so many times before. But now Kiefer Sutherland’s finally Bauered out, we have Corey Hawkins (Dr Dre in Straight Outta Compton) as Eric Carter, a special forces soldier in witness protection after his squad killed a terrorist leader in Yemen. Carter comes out all guns blazing when more terrorists go after members of the squad, though it seems they’re after more than just revenge.

Hawkins is dead-eyed and impassive as the action hero, wrestling with lines like “Right now, I’m the only person I can trust.” It’s all entertainingly ludicrous.

Summary

In a spin-off of the celebrated real-time thriller series, former US Army Ranger Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins) races to thwart a large-scale terror attack on US soil.
