The Foreigner

A London restaurateur (Jackie Chan) loses his daughter to a terror attack staged by a group called the “authentic IRA,” then taps his long dormant skills as a special operations soldier to face off against a cagey former Sinn Fein leader (Pierce Brosnan) with a lot at stake in his current government post. Martin Campbell (Goldeneye, Casino Royale) directed this twisty, bracing political thriller, giving Chan room to display his dramatic ability and letting Brosnan flesh out a vigorous, complex character who’s surrounded by frenemies with secrets of their own. In English and subtitled Mandarin.
