Ex-CIA agent and current security expert Ben Logan has moved to Belgium with his estranged 15-year-old daughter. But when they're both targeted for assassination, they must go on the run and learn to trust each other.
Taken? Unknown? The Bourne Identity? Ok, no joke... This movie is a thriller, with a decent plot, that works well as a formula, but feels like a formula. Everything match in terms of timing, betrayal, race, music, editing... It is the perfect template. But template anyway, and therefor predictable.
