Conclusion: 2/5
This time Jackie Chan takes on Pierce Brosnan. A film made for Netflix. The Foreigner is based on a novel called The Chinaman which was published in 1992. After watching this film it is not one that you will come away thinking about for days. It is rather a forgettable film but while watching it it is rather enjoyable. Watching it though I did get the impression that both Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan both enjoyed working together. The character that Pierce Brosnan plays a former terrorist who has become a successful politician. There is a scene in this where a double decker bus gets blown up. While filming for this scene, in February 2016, two reports were made to the London Metropolitan Police about a “terrorist attack” made on the Lambeth
Bridge, after local citizens were not told of the planned filming.
