West aims for a kind of Jason Bourne or Mission: Impossible feel, but he falls short in budget, star power and explosive spectacle.

The story feels cobbled together and the dialogue is often painful.

Films don't reach the silver screen without plenty of effort on somebody's part, but it's difficult to see who's put much work into Stratton, a lazily derivative action-thriller based on Duncan Falconer's novels.

Twenty years after he directed the monumental Con Air, Simon West does duty on one of those embarrassing underpowered British attempts at an American-style thriller.

A bit dull.

September 3, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Less an action movie, more a direct breach of the Geneva conventions, Stratton is a wannabe Bond knock-off with water on the brain.

Audience Reviews for Stratton

Simon West has a really odd choice for films and this is just about on par with the Nicolas Cage film Stolen. The first 30 minutes is so boring and the action scene that opens the film does not generate any interest. The film fails to deliver any real storyline and I'm amazed at the talent involved with this film, surely they should've known better.
