Black Swan is a family-owned private military company run by William Lewis along with his daughter, Grace and  son, Oliver. Black Swan is usually engaged by parties that want to remove an obstacle, may it be via fair or foul play, whichever necessary.

Black Swan is engaged by George Clements, a middle person for Britgaz, a gas corporation in Britain, wants to clear the way for its gas pipeline extension. When a village refuses to evacuate the land for the pipeline, Black Swan is engaged to 'clear' the way. 

Grace goes and tries to buy the villager's consent but was met with fire instead. In retaliation, Grace orders to kill all men and boys and leave the women and girls to spread the fear. Her action was recorded by a girl on a mobile phone - and that horrifying act has shared to the public and soon catches public attention.

The British government issues a Red Notice for the Black Swan [A Red Notice is a request to law enforcement worldwide to locate and provisionally arrest a person pending extradition, surrender or similar legal action]

In reality, it was the British PM who had hired William in the first place. Now PM is ordering George Clements, who is also the military advisor, to execute Black Swan before any evidence can lead back to the PM.

During an ambush on William's house with the help of Special Air Service (SAS) best agents - Tom Buckingham and Declan Smith, they did not managed to capture Grace and Oliver as someone has tipped them about the ambush. George finds William and shoots him. 

Being put on leave, Tom takes his girlfriend to France via train, Eurostream. Grace also boards the train under heavy disguise, with her fellow remaining Black Swans. 

When he realised that Grace is also on the train, he tries to outbest Grace and her team. 

What is Grace doing on the train? Will Tom be able to save the passengers and his girlfriend amidst the conflict?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 4.6/ 5.0 The betrayal is the plot twist in the movie. And you'll learn the truth at the end of the movie.

Cast: 4.8/ 5.0 Sam and Ruby both delivered a great performance. But why must Ruby be the bad party - although she is really kicking ass!

Will I Watch It Again: I will - and I heard that there will be a sequel too!

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.

  1. Best giler kan movie ni. Ruby tengok kelmarin. Ruby Rose tu lakonan dia senakin bagus ya. Geram plak tengok dia ganas camtu. Pastu Tom tu memang lawan dia lah ngan pompuan psycho tu. Dah cedera teruk pun bleh dengar ayat-ayat nasihat Grace tu. Hahaha. Harap mereka buat SAS part 2.
