DVD & Blu-ray review: The Expatriate (15)
Philipp Stolzl DVD/ Blu-ray (100mins)
Friday 26 April 2013
Aaron Eckhart tries his best with this weak Taken/Bourne-like thriller, but the engaging action man and his pronounced chin sag a little as the chase sequences mount up and the villains become ever more irrelevant.
He plays a “security specialist” (a CIA hardnut, in other words) assigned to a supposedly cushy number in Belgium, living with his precocious teen daughter (Liana Liberato, who holds up well here). A pouty Olga Kurylenko also stars as a thoroughly unconvincing CIA agent in this watchable tosh.
