Additional Info I like to look at the IMDb trivia to see if there is anything interesting that people have uploaded. This film seems to have garnered a mass of what look like press releases, so here’s a bit of my own trivia. Alice Eve might be best known for getting her gear off for no dramatic reason in the 2013 Star Trek Into Darkness.
Director Ariel Vroman
Starring Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman, Tommy Lee Jones, Ryan Reynolds, Jordi Molla, Gal Gadot, Michael Pitt, Alice Eve, Scott Adkins,
Elevator Pitch When a CIA operative on the track of a hacker who can access the world’s atomic weapons is killed a way must be found to recover his memories, and save the world. The CIA chief in London selects an extreme criminal with “space in his brain” to receive the memories but, after the operation, the man escapes  and now with the CIA agent’s memories invades the dead man’s home, attacks his wife and goes on a rampage through the city. What to do?
Content Many scenes in the city of London, which is quite well portrayed, some car chases and a bit of fairly extreme violence in various situations, including physical attacks and gunfire.
A View This was fairly panned by the critics, Mark Kermode making a lot of jokes about the London accents, “Hoy mate, that’s bang out of line gov!” and more, but the general public liked it a bit more and I thought KC was impressive as an extremely violent criminal. Now you know what it’s about you can watch it without paying too much attention.
