A young CIA recruit named Mitch Rapp (Dylan O'Brien) trains to become a black-ops counterterrorism agent under the tutelage of Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton), a fearsome warrior and legend within the agency. While Hurley advises never to make the mission personal, Rapp remains haunted by the death of his fiancée in a terrorist attack. Eventually, the two men must work together to stop a rogue operative from sowing chaos in the Middle East. Directed by Michael Cuesta, American Assassin is based on the novel of the same name by Vince Flynn.
