Skipped over the best part which would be his dedication to finding the killers. Then proceeds into your typical save the world holly wood movie. Still a good movie.

Dylan O'Brian is the action hero we need right now, smart & funny yet deadly as hell.

The movie was pretty good. But I wouldn’t 10% know, because his fake beard on the first 10 minutes threw me off, it was VERY noticeable.

Michael Keaton, stellar as usual. Dylan O'Brien's performance was amazing and unexpected--the next big action movie star! Good pacing and flow. Very entertaining.

American Assassin has some of the more terrifying, brutal, and visceral action sequences to be seen on the big screen so far this year. But the film can’t ever quite manage to maintain the same momentum or intensity as its opening act, thanks to a lackluster climax and sudden left-turn into full blown absurdity.

Built for action, like its title character, the movie packs a muscular, bloody punch, but mainly it’s a well-oiled diversion.

For those without strong feelings for the Harrison Ford-era Clancy adaptations, which were polished but largely unmemorable, American Assassin works best as a little-league version of one of those or, in more contemporary terms, as an unsurprising origin story for what the filmmakers obviously hope is the beginning of a franchise.
