The Foreigner

Sometimes revenge is the only justice.


The Foreigner
A London businessman sees his long-buried past erupt in a revenge-fuelled 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, he is forced into a cat-and-mouse conflict with a British government official, whose own past may hold clues to the identities of the elusive killers.

Tomatometer quote icon The Foreigner adheres strictly to action thriller formula, but benefits from committed -- and out of character -- performances from its talented veteran stars.
