Plot Outline:

When his daughter is killed in a terrorist bombing, a businessman seeks answers to who is behind it. When he is stonewalled at every turn, he returns to a life long buried - and starts to play a cat-and-mouse game with a government official whose own dark past may hold the key to finding terrorists responsible. -- Chris Kavan

More of a Pierce Brosnan film than a Jackie Chan film, which is confusing because it's entitled "The Foreigner" and based from the novel entitled "Chinaman". That's forgivable but I don't think Brosnan's character is even likable to be the center of the film. Anyway, Chan delivered good actions (as usual) and Brosnan was successful on this stint.

While the IRA angle seems like a strange choice to take for an action film (a political thriller more like?), it does lend it a decidedly different tone than most action films. Jackie Chan still shows he isn't shy about pulling off some moves and Pierce Brosnan is likewise good as a man caught between his past and face he presents in the presence. Good supporting cast all around and a story with a few twists - all in all, a worthy action film.
