Director Daniel Espinosa takes the ever reliable Denzel Washington and the kind of miscast Ryan Reynolds and teams them up in a spy action thriller that's pretty much a mash up of every other film like this you've seen before and does little new apart from set it in the grittier environment of Johannesburg.
When Washington's long sought bad guy gets caught and ends up in Reynolds' safe house it promptly gets blown leaving the two of them on the run in the city trying to work out how the house was found out and who wants them both dead. And if you can't spot that person from the moment they walk onscreen.................well, that's all I'm saying.
Certainly the film has plenty of explosions, car chases, shootouts and standoffs before the finale comes along and it's all efficiently done but with no real flair or imagination either. For me, mostly going to end up a one watch probably.
