Pierce Brosnan is on convincing form as an ex-CIA man in this cloak-and-dagger thriller.

The plot sees Brosnan running up against his one-time protégé (Luke Bracey) after he steps out of the shadows to shield a vulnerable war crimes witness (Olga Kurylenko) from scores of murderous supporting players.

The plot has more holes than a string vest, but it’s entertaining hokum and Brosnan proves his spry spy veteran has still got what it takes.
