John Connor [Celluloid 06.26.17] action thriller

The Foreigner is based Stephen Leather's novel "The Chinaman" (title changed to appeal to generation snowflake, I presume). It is directed by Casino Royale's Martin Campbell and stars Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan.

Worth noting here that Martin Campbell also directed the awesome 90s PA actioner, No Escape which is totally underrated.

The Foreigner, starring Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan, is a timely action thriller from the director of Casino Royale. The film tells the story of humble London businessman Quan (Chan), whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge-fueled vendetta when the only person left for him to love -- his teenage daughter -- is taken from him in a senseless act of politically-motivated terrorism.

In his relentless search for the identity of the terrorists, Quan is forced into a cat-and-mouse conflict with a British government official (Brosnan), whose own past may hold clues to the identities of the elusive killers.
