For today’s Ass Whoopin Wednesday film, I wanted to check out a flick that starred Pierce Brosnan (Goldeneye) in the ever popular world of taking old stars and making them action stars (e.g. Liam Neeson in Taken, Denzel Washington in The Equalizer, and Sean Penn in The Gunman). Brosnan plays ex-CIA Agent Devereaux, a man who was considered one of the best agents. He gets pulled back into the game when someone close to him gets into a little trouble when they are in the middle of a cover up that can harm a Russians chances at the presidency and a high level CIA operatives career. Devereaux will have to do whatever it takes to protect the key in all of this mess in the form of a woman named Alice (Olga Kurylenko). The film also stars Luke Bracey (Point Break) as Mason, Bill Smitrovich (Ted) as Hanley, Amila Terzimehic (So Hot Was The Canon) as Alexa, Lazar Ristovski (Underground) as Federov, Mediha Musliovic (Twice Born) as Natalia, Eliza Taylor (The 100) as Sarah, Will Patton (Remember The Titans) as Perry Weinstein, Patrick Kennedy (Atonement) as Edgar Simpson, and the film was directed by Roger Donaldson (The Ban Job).
