First of all, Sean Penn looks absolutely JACKED in an unusual action role for the two time Oscar winner. Secondly, the fact that he and fellow Oscar winner Javier Bardem are starring in a flick from the director of Taken and From Paris With Love director, Pierre Morel is as intriguing as it is strange.
The plot seems fairly straight forward, Penn is a former government spook who did some dodgy things in his past with former pal, Bardem. It all kicks off again when Bardem pinches his better half. In fairness, the action looks slick and those lofty names only seem to add to intensity.
