Directed by Pierre Morel in 2015, the action crime drama features Sean Penn, Javier Bardem and Idris Elba.

Double Oscar winner Sean Penn, who has covered everything from madcap comedy to gritty real-life drama in a career that has spanned more than three decades, delivers another star turn as an ageing action hero on a deadly mission.

Greedy mining companies in the Congo enlist Jim Terrier, a sniper for hire, to kill the Minister of Mining who wants to cut their profits. He flees after completing the assignment, and when he returns many years later, he finds that the hunter has become the hunted. Rating:16VL
