Close (2019)

Not your typical jingoistic Hollywood action movie but lacking some key ingredients.  A believable performance by Noomi Rapace and some strong action set pieces are let down by a lack of subtext* and a frustrating co-star.

The relatively short running time is both a blessing and a curse in that it remains palatable yet doesn’t provide scope for us to invest in the characters.

*The security file literally spells out “abandonment issues”.
