Action-thriller more filler than killer

MICHAEL Keaton soared as the levitating Birdman. He sold McDonald’s cheesy founder. Even his blue-collar villain in Spider-Man: Homecoming felt like the work of a master craftsman. But the Oscar-nominated actor is oddly miscast in American Assassin, as ex-Navy SEAL Stan Hurley. The big budget action thriller’s hero (Teen Wolf’s Dylan O’Brien) and villain (Taylor Kitsch) are no more convincing. ...

The fight-or-flight response of the three main characters, each of whom is experiencing acute stress, drives this independent crime drama.
