Review Summary

With a fast pace, Emile Hirsch potentially being miscast, and a strange implentation of action and drama, "The Engineer" has a lot of curious decisions regarding its various choices.

Who Is this For?

People who are interested in Middle Eastern political thrillers or action events based on true stories (like “Zero Dark Thirty”) may enjoy “The Engineer.”

"Hidden Strike" features Jackie Chan and John Cena as two wise-cracking mercenaries who must join forces to fight the real villain.
