Kevin Costner is setting himself up to have a huge year. He has 4 big movies slated to come out this year with potentially a 5th thrown in there as well. Things look to be coming up Costner in 2014. For example, this little spy thriller. Here is the official synopsis of what’s going on:
“Ethan Runner is a dangerous international spy, who is determined to give up his high stakes life to finally build a closer relationship with his estranged wife and daughter, whom he’s previously kept at arm’s length to keep out of danger. But first, he must complete one last mission – even if it means juggling the two toughest assignments yet: hunting down the world’s most ruthless terrorist and looking after his teenage daughter for the first time in ten years, while his wife is out of town.”
When I read through that description of the movie my first and only immediate thought is that this has to be a slapstick action comedy. There has to be some wacky situations with some bumbling terrorists. But boy is that instinct wrong. This is a true dramatic thriller.
This looks like a great popcorn movie for the middle of the winter. I think I might have to head to the theater to see this one.
