The Foreigner is another work of the director of Casino Royale, which has Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan starring in it. Long-buried past of a humble London businessman Quan becomes the reason of revenge-fueled vendetta for the politically-motivated terrorists who kidnap the only person whom he loves, his daughter. While Quan is trying to find and safe his daughter he's being drawn into a conflict with the government official of Britain (Pierce Brosnan) whose own past might occur to be the key to the killers' personalities.
Chan often feels like a visitor in his own film, and the script attempts some plot pirouettes that don't always flow gracefully. Yet overall, The Foreigner proves to be a respectable example of a thinking person's action flick.
