(85) The Protege is exactly the stylish action vehicle one would expect with Martin Campbell at the helm. Certain narrative decisions keep it from his top tier, but those thirsting for Bond-esque thrills with splashes of grisly violence should get their fill. Maggie Q is a formidable action star, Samuel L. Jackson does his thing, and Michael Keaton makes for a devilish adversary. Slick camerawork and predominantly practical stunts make The Protege a refreshingly clean experience in a genre currently filled to the brim with buffoonery.
