Gemini Man (2019, dir. Ang Lee)

An elite assassin on the verge of retirement is targeted for execution. A good-looking action flick that takes ages to tell us what the poster does. One great action sequence aside, it’s underpowered, though a game support cast of Brit character actors do their best with none-more-90s material.

President Under Siege [AKA De Premier] (2016, dir. Erik Van Looy)

The Belgian prime minister is blackmailed into an assassination attempt on the visiting US president. Modest thriller, perhaps all the better for focusing on moral quandaries than on guns-blazing action, though it feels like a solid high concept idea not quite fulfilled.
