2 out of 5 stars
A stoic assassin groomed to be the perfect killing machine must find the people who double-crossed him, in this subpar Jason Bourne manqué based on the smash video-game franchise. East European globetrotting and a sexy Slavic costar lend international sheen to
this occasionally laughable action-thriller (how does a man who never hides the bar-code tattoo on his bald head elude Interpol?). Xavier Gens’s yet-to-be-released horror debut, Frontière(s), boasts far more narrative inventiveness and off-kilter swagger than this preprogrammed paycheck gig.
