The film follows Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Keaton), who would be the most feared training officer in the CIA if more than a handful of people at the agency actually knew of his existence. As the story begins, Hurley’s deputy director tasks him with training a black ops recruit devastated by the loss of his fiancée to a terrorist attack. The pair is eventually dispatched on a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent to stop a mysterious operative from starting World War III in the Middle East.

The series features protagonist Mitch Rapp as he embarks on various counter-terrorism missions. Author of the series Vince Flynn passed away in 2013 with his book series continued by Kyle Mills.
