The Courier keeps up
a relentless pace...
However, the protection unit has been compromised and the courier (a highly
watchable Olga Kurylenko) delivers the package without knowing it contains enough
cyanide gas to wipe out the genuine officers and silence Nick permanently. Fate
takes a hand and Nick is forced to take a leap of faith in order to survive.
The tough, resourceful courier is full of surprises and has to convince a panicking
Nick that she will help him. Initially he does not trust her but, proving amazingly
capable, she takes on the might of Mannings' doggedly cold-blooded thugs; putting
her own life on the line in a locked-down multi-storey car park with no apparent
means of escape.
With the judge in Washington agreeing a short suspension to sort out the lack
of communication with the witness, time is ticking away as Manning's paid assassins
hunt down the courier and Nick as they try to hide from them and find a way
out before the trial is dismissed and Mannings once again evades justice.
Prepare for full-throttle thrills! Compelling, gritty and with heart-in-your-mouth
tension, The Courier piles on the pace as the hunters close in for the
kill and both sides suffer injuries from knives, bullets, and gory hand-to-hand
The Courier also features: Greg Orvis as The Sniper; Craig Conway as
Agent Parlow; William Moseley (The Chronicles of Narnia franchise) as
Agent Bryant; and Dermot Mulroney (The Grey; Young Guns) as Special Agent Roberts.
