'The Foreigner' (Oct. 13th)
Martial-arts icon Jackie Chan is 63. Too old to kick ass? Like hell. In Martin Campbell's revenge thriller, Chan plays Quan, a father avenging the murder of his teen daughter in a London bombing organized by terrorists. The despairing dad, who has a secret past, demands payback, much to the annoyance of a government official (Pierce Brosnan) who underestimates Quan at his peril. Yes, Chan can't move quite the way he used to, but age has deepened his acting prowess, making this that rare action thriller that doesn't hide the face of pain.
