Having never watched the previous 2 movies in this series I was concerned that I would be at a loss. I was worried that I would have been thrown half way into a past storyline. I was, however, pleasantly surprised! This film had its own steam that it was running on. Almost immediately one is thrown into this action-packed psychological thriller and drama as we are chucked into the deep end with a frantic foot pursuit through the streets. Tom Hanks’ character Robert Landon wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia, he teams up with Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones), a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories. Together, they race across Europe and against the clock to foil a deadly global plot.
