Assassin Club review – idiotic action thriller

“Death has come to call,” declares Sam Neill’s sinister silver fox, thereby setting the scene for this idiotic action thriller about a stone-cold contract killer on the trail of a bunch of other stone-cold contract killers. Handsome Morgan (Henry Golding) thought he was out but they pulled him back in with an offer of $6m. His “one last job” plays out in a rote whirl of shootouts, stakeouts and extended chases around Europe’s major cities. By the end, his getaway car is almost as riddled with holes as the plot itself.
