Pierce “Bond” Brosnan is former CIA agent Peter Devereaux. He is reactivated to bring in an old flame who has learned a secret about Arkady Federov (Lazar Ristovski), a man destined to become the next Russian president. When she is assassinated by his former mentee David Mason (Luke Bracey), Devereaux sets out to find the secret. His search leads him to Alice Fournier (Olga Kurylenko), a social worker with secrets of her own.
The two must evade Mason and Russian assassin Alexa (Amila Terzimehic) while unravelling the truth of Federov’s role in the second Chechnyan war. Gradually, the truth is revealed, leading to a final conflict between Devereaux and Fournier, Federov, and the CIA. This is a solid spy film. It doesn’t do anything new with the genre, but it was entertaining. If you like spy thrillers, its worth watching.
