Directed by Vicky Jewson, Close follows Rapace’s Sam, a female bodyguard hired to protect a spoiled heiress named Zoe (Sophie Nélisse) in what seems like a fairly straightforward job. However, things go awry when a mysterious group tries to kidnap Zoe, forcing the two women to go on the run. January 18th, 2019

Watched this tonite.
Started out strong, but fell apart in the final act with some questionable writing.
Gives the impression there was some behind-the-scenes battles regarding which way to take the story.

Watched this the other night as well...not much to it really. Pretty standard remake/rip-off/borrow of any number of movies. A Man on Fire came to mind right away but nowhere near as good. I would give it 2/5. Watch something else unless bored.

It is shit like this that continues to give Netflix a bad name when it comes to the movies they bail out or rescue etc.

This was watchable but so mediocre. Noomi so desperately needs a new agent. She deserves so much better.
