American Assassin ★★★½

As shown in The Maze Runner movies, Dylan O’Brien shows he’s fully capable of handling lead roles. Here, it’s just further proof he can carry a movie on his own. He’s great here, fully committed & has a bright future of a very solid leading man whether it’s action, comedy, you name it, he can do it. Vets, Michael Keaton and Sanaa Lathan provide strong supporting work. I like these types of movies. Anything CIA-related, i’m going to enjoy it.

Heck, this movie was directed by Michael Cuesta who was a producer for a couple seasons of one of my all-time favorite shows, showtime’s “Homeland” and he also did that underrated Jeremy Renner vehicle “Kill the Messenger” back in 14’. So, that’s more evidence why I liked this.
