Movie Review: Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot 'Jonah Hill best performance of his career'

#AmericanAssassin Arrives on Digital November 21 & On 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray Combo Pack On December 5

Based on the best-selling book series by Vince Flynn, Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner franchise, “Teen Wolf”) and Academy Award® nominee Michael Keaton (Best Actor, Birdman, 2014) lead a star-studded ensemble in American Assassin, arriving on Digital November 21 and on 4K Ultra HD™ (plus Blu-ray and Digital), Blu-ray™ Combo Pack (plus Digital) and DVD December 5 from Lionsgate. The “totally action-packed” (Topher Gauk-Roger, CNN) feature also stars Sanaa Lathan (Now You See Me 2, “The Cleveland Show”), Shiva Negar (“24 Hour Rental,” “Art of War”) Scott Adkins (Doctor Strange, The Expendables 2), and Taylor Kitsch (Lone Survivor, “Friday Night Lights”).

Based on the fictional character Mitch Rapp (O’Brien), featured in 16 New York Times bestsellers with over 20 million copies sold to date, the explosive thriller introduces the popular series to the big screen as a young Rapp takes on his first assignment and begins his career as a CIA officer.

American Assassin follows the rise of Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien), a CIA black-ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton). The pair is then enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on both military and civilian targets. Together, the three discover a pattern in the violence, leading them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) intent on settling a personal and professional vendetta that could have cataclysmic results.

Directed by Michael Cuesta (Kill the Messenger, “Homeland”) and written for the screen by Stephen Schiff, Michael Finch, Edward Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz, the American Assassin 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and Digital releases feature exclusive bonus content, including five all-new, never-before-seen featurettes and a cast Q&A.

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…
