The Expatriate. (2012)



Yet another secret agent betrayed by his agency and left completely burned. No country, no cash and countless former colleagues trying to erase him. The Expatriate adds a twist from Taken in that the former kill team specialist Ben Logan played by Aaron Eckhart  finds the safest place for his estranged daughter Amy is by his side. Amy is represented by Liana Liberato in a barely convincing way. However Eckhart  sells the solid plot.  Former Bond Girl Olga Kurylenko  credibly  fills the role of a former lover who double betrays him.  Jean Reno who was brilliant (Mission Impossible, Ronin) has an unaccredited but critical bit part. Philipp St√∂lzl is a newish director who leaves a good first impression.

Three stars.
