Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Nguyen Le @ The Film Scoop
    • Excerpt: David Marconi’s script grants more time and turns to follow the exasperated politician than the grieving father,
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: Now it’s time for Jackie Chan to get in on the grizzled old badass routine. Everyone, step away and give the man room to work.
  • Jared Mobarak @ BuffaloVibe
    • Excerpt: The Foreigner delivers two men in similar positions (reformed “soldiers”) whose motivations couldn’t be further from the other. While Quan has nothing to lose, Hennessy has everything. One’s perpetually on offense, the other defense, and both are beholden to a tale just smart enough to be worth our time.
  • Frank Ochieng @ The Critical Movie Critics
    • Excerpt: Fans of Chan will embrace the virulent change of pace in seeing their high-energy hero take a break from his usual campy-minded confines (but not his animated, trademark choreographed martial-artistry) even though this potboiler wipes very little dust off of the run-of-the-mill cloak-and-dagger dramatics and rapid-fire bolt-action template that’s been used since time immemorial.
