Robert Red­ford plays veteran CIA of­fi­cer Nathan Muir, who is one day away from re­tire­ment when he learns his one-time pro­tégé, Tom Bishop (Brad Pitt), is up to his neck in hot water in China, where he has been de­tained on a charge of es­pi­onage and is to be ex­e­cuted within 24 hours. The CIA isn’t in­ter­ested in sav­ing their man be­cause his ac­tions could dam­age US atempts to strike a new trade deal with the Chi­nese. So, it’s left to Muir to save the day. Di­rec­tor Tony Scott’s en­tic­ing mix of thrills, pol­i­tics and hu­man­ity makes for a think­ing per­son’s ac­tion movie. ★★★✩
