Quotes

William Cobb: Could this guy be more of a mouth breather?
Michael Cleveland: Well I think his everyday Joe appearance is all a part of his cover. Think about it, you'd never suspect a guy who looks like that is an assassin. Which makes him the perfect assassin.
William Cobb: You really think this guy's the Ghost?
Michael Cleveland: I'll bet you a year's salary he kills the president tonight.
William Cobb: Easiest 17 grand I ever made. Yeah.

Brain-off entertainment
7 January 2017 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a man who struggles to write his first novel, which is about an assassin. When his book is released, his agent promoted his novel as a true story. Venezuelans abduct him and hence he gets involved in coups and assassination plans involving multiple fractions of the country.

This is the first film I watched in 4K on my TV, and the picture quality is crystal clear. Yet, the mesmerising picture quality does not make up for the silly story. What happens in the story is very unrealistic and at times downright silly. However, there are a few moments when it is funny, such as the two CIA agents chatting in their office about the author. "True Memoirs of an International Assassin" is made to be a genuine brain-off entertainment.
