It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a Jackie Chan film that I really truly enjoyed, but I’ll be darned if this new one doesn’t look action-packed and white-hot prescient given the terrorist attacks in the UK recently. Chan plays a father bereaved by a terrorist explosion that takes the life of his young daughter, and he believes that a local political figure (played by a hirsute Pierce Brosnan) holds the information that will lead him to exact revenge. The Foreigner looks dark, menacing and awesome. I cannot wait to see it.
