Here’s the plot synopsis from our review:
“The opening sequence has Jimmy and his crew closing in on a house full of Russian operatives. They are guided off-site by Mother (John Malkovich) and his Overwatch program, which consists of using various methods to enhance visibility not known from those on the ground. They manage to get the jump; however, things go south in a hurry, leading Jimmy, Alice (Lauren Cohan), Dougie (Carlo Alban), and Sam (Ronda Rousey) to execute the Russians and leave before the house is destroyed.
Fast forward 16 months to the fictional southeast Asian city of Indocarr, where his tactical unit is camped out at the American embassy. They have come up short in raiding a shipping container supposedly housing a deadly chemical, based off intel given by Alice’s contact. However, her contact, Li Noor (Iko Uwais from THE RAID franchise), has come to the embassy with additional information on a disc.
There is a catch: Get Li out of the country in eight hours, or the data “self-destruct” off the disc. Jimmy calls on Overwatch to help them get 22 miles from the embassy to the landing strip where they’re plane will be held for 10 minutes. Axel comes into play accompanying the Deputy Foreign Minister, and letting them know they will be coming for Li. Can they make it to the plane before all hell comes busting through the city?”
