'American Assassin' is extremely uneven, especially tackling it's "gritty" approach to politics. So lifeless in fact, even Michael Keaton knows there's better roles out there and saves his talents for something better.
However, it dose have some interesting action sequences and decent looking shots. So the technical side of things stops this from being flat out bad.
Dylan O'Brien, on the other side, is at least trying his best from what he's given. Slowly building himself to be a action star or a strong leading man, if he continues this path.
