Martin Campbell directed this twisty, bracing political thriller, giving Chan room to display his dramatic ability and letting Brosnan flesh out a vigorous, complex character who's surrounded by frenemies with secrets of their own.

Chan is perfectly fine as a man who feels he has nothing to lose, but his hollowed-out gaze and Death Wish-style crusade can't compensate for how numbingly thin this all is, stringing together just enough plot to justify the eruptions of violence.

It's well-made, nicely paced and accomplishes what we expect from this sort of film.

The Foreigner is a good, lean cut of meat-in other words, a typical Martin Campbell movie, expeditious and cold-blooded in its cross-cut, cloak-and-dagger plotting and violence.

I'm not sure anyone has plans to turn this into a franchise, but I certainly want to see more from this Chan-aissance.

Chan ... remains a likeable everyman hero type that the audience roots as he navigates his world through a labyrinth of violence and betrayal.

Action thriller with great twists and turns! The film is similar to others of the genre, but still effective.

[It] is a splendid, polished action thriller with brain and heart, and a marvelous pairing of two actors, Chan and Brosnan.

I feel confident saying that this was the most underrated movie of 2017 - if not only for Chan's dynamic performance. The tagline says it all: Never push a good man too far.

While there are a few sequences that offer some Chan-driven action highlights, The Foreigner spends more time on warmed-over political intrigue than you might have expected - much to its ultimate detriment.
