AMERICAN ASSASSIN follows the rise of Mitch Rapp a CIA black ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley.
Mitch Rapp (O’Brien), 23, lost his parents to a tragic car accident at the age of 14, as well as his girlfriend to a terrorist attack just as they were engaged. Seeking revenge, he is enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Lathan) as a black ops recruit. Kennedy then assigns Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Keaton) to train Mitch. Together they will later on investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on military and civilian targets. The discovery of a pattern in the violence leads them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent, Annika (Negar), to stop a mysterious operative, nicknamed “Ghost” (Kitsch), intent on starting a world war in the Middle East.
There is a LOT to like here in this trailer!
It’s got Sanaa Lathan, so that good enough for me off rip, but its also got the best batman ever Michael Keaton, and Taylor Kitsch from FNL. As you can see in the trailer, plenty of throat punches, and quick action. I like it.
