A CIA agent stationed in South Africa is sent to question a rogue operative, who has been arrested years after betraying the agency, only to be attacked by mercenaries hired to capture the fugitive. As they flee for their lives, the interrogator has to contend with not only the enemies hunting them, but also the mind games of his prisoner. Thriller, with Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds.
In this taut thriller, CIA rookie Ryan Reynolds sees his world turned upside down when enigmatic rogue former agent Denzel Washington is delivered to the safe house he mans in Cape Town. However, before an interrogation can take place, the bolt hole is attacked, forcing the pair on the run. But who are their pursuers and can they really trust everyone in the CIA camp? Reynolds plays the initially out-of-his-depth younger operative with a mixture of fear and feistiness, while Washington is the epitome of detached cool as the sort of bad guy that audiences find themselves rooting for. There's also fine work from Brendan Gleeson and Sam Shepard in less showy supporting roles. Director Daniel Espinosa occasionally gets bogged down in the complexities of the plot, but is on more confident footing with a series of white-knuckle chase scenes and shoot-outs.
