I rated American Assassin (2017) 3/10 #IMDb

The worst kind of risible ‘heroic’ thriller imaginable. Tissue-thin plot, recurrent violence, tropes so worn you can see the threads. Sure, there are some good parts. It starts promisingly with the quite horrible beach massacre. Then the focused, death-wish, journey of the character. And then it all falls apart as it turns into not-quite mission impossible. But without the humour, the gadgets, or the credibility.

I go to the movies now and again. I take a few photos here and there and play with them a bit in Adobe Lightroom.
