In American Assassin, Dylan O’Brien stars as Mitch Rapp, a youthful counter-fear based oppression agent in the CIA. Under the direction of veteran CIA operator Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton), Mitch traversed the globe on his first mission abroad to reveal a fear based oppressor intrigue and the rebel previous agent behind it. Consider him a more youthful, greener Jason Bourne — before he transformed into a living weapon.
In any case, based on this scene from the film, solely on MTV News, Rapp is well on his approach to getting to be as unyielding as Bourne. Why did Rapp choose to join the Central Intelligence Agency in any case? “A ton’s occurred in my life,” he says. Ok, indeed, every youthful, hungry legend has an awful backstory — and a more established, wearier tutor — to drive them forward.
“So you think you were sent here as an outlet for your self-pity and your anger and all your guilt?” Hurley says, checking Rapp on his intentions. “Patriotism exists because people like you and people like me need a higher cause.”
But what is that higher cause? And just how far will Mitch Rapp go to find it? You’ll have to wait and see.
