For my money, writer-director Taylor Sheridan (Sicario, Wind River, TV’s Yellowstone) is among the best in the business these days, but this Angelina Jolie starrer falters early and often. Aside from taking Michael Koryta’s best-selling novel and jettisoning all but the basic story, the film comes off as a rather generic and tame action-drama. It’s fine in and of itself, but compared to Sheridan’s top-shelf oeuvre, it’s a bland misfire.

3/5 stars
