    The Foreigner - very serious movie, well scripted, directed and all the cast in it performed dutifully well. It'll keep your interest to the end. The story has a progression that's absorbing, it's mesmerizing and continues to get better all the way to the climax. The makeup, sound mixing, action choreography, and acting performances are all top-notch. Jackie Chan perhaps gives his career-best performances, both physically and emotionally. He just does the things that makes you feel good about his character. Best political action-thriller and best Jackie movie in many years.

    I LOVE Jackie Chan...he is just cool....and I would watch him eat cow turds and like the movie...but this movie was different...I saw a side of Jackie Chan I had not seen before...and I liked it a lot...a whole lot..I loved the supporting actors..they weren't cardboard cutouts of stereo echos from a bad shroom trip..they were just damned good...I give this movie a big 5 star rating because it was damned good!!!!

    Enjoyed seeing Jackie Chan acting instead of clowning. Good plot, excellent cast, and NOT a Hollywood movie!

    I am not a fan of Jackie Chan but I must say that it was a good story. It was not a martial arts film, while there was some in it. It was surprisingly a good story.

    Not as much action as in a younger Chan movie, but it's the story that is riveting. Brosnan looks and plays his part perfectly. Very good re-hash about the bad old days of the lRA. Make sure you keep track of the NAMES in the movie!

    Great movie! Full of action and no boring moment. Jackie Chan did it again. Together with Pierce Brosnan, this movie is highly recommended.
