A terrorist thriller set in Paris might be a touch controversial these days, but Bastille Day looks like a solid action flick (Bourne meets The Fugitive). Movies In Focus is alway interested in seeing the French capital on the big screen and this looks like a juicy hamburger movie (enjoyable but not exactly gourmet).
Michael Mason (Richard Madden, Game Of Thrones) is an American pickpocket living in Paris who finds himself hunted by the CIA when he steals a bag that contains more than just a wallet. Sean Briar (Idris Elba, Luther, Prometheus), the field agent on the case, soon realizes that Michael is just a pawn in a much bigger game and is also his best asset to uncover a large-scale conspiracy.
Going against commands, Briar recruits Michael to use his expert pickpocketing skills to help quickly track down the source of the corruption. As a 24hr thrill ride ensues, the unlikely duo discover they are both targets and must rely upon each other in order to take down a common enemy.
Bastille Day will be released in UK cinemas April 22
