How far would you go to avenge the deaths of your loved ones and to learn the truth behind their murders? ‘Black Site’ is a 2022 American action-thriller film which tells the story of a female CIA agent who, after capturing the man responsible for the death of her family, has to track him down once more after he escapes custody.
Michelle Monaghan, Jason Clarke, and Jai Courtney star in the upcoming film from Red Box, scheduled to be released May 03, 2022.
Official Synopsis: A group of officers based in a labyrinthine top-secret government facility must fight for their lives against Hatchet, a brilliant and infamous high-value detainee. When he escapes, his mysterious and deadly agenda has far-reaching and dire consequences.
‘Black Site’ works to alienate its heroine from the very start as, in the opening scene, CIA analyst Abigail Trent’s family is killed in a bombing attack on a medical facility in Istanbul.
After everyone and everything she cares for is taken from her by a man known only as Hatchet (Clarke), she allows her moral compass to slip and proceeds to dive headfirst into finding the man responsible for taking everything away from her.
This path of vengeance is what leads her to the Citadel, a secret military intelligence base that houses some of the world’s most notorious terrorists, a place she would never have dreamed of entering before. But grief makes people do things they wouldn’t normally do, as long as they can convince themselves that the ends justify the means.
Her obsession pays off, as she’s able to track down Hatchet. Her intel leads to the apprehension of the man responsible for the murder of her husband and daughter, but not before she discovers there might be more to the bombing than she was originally led to believe.
After being brought to the Citadel, Hatchet escapes his captors and, in the process, delivers another devastating blow to Abigail by killing the one friend she has left in the world. Now, truly, she has nothing left to lose.
Hatchet continues to best Abigail at every turn. When he destroys the base’s communication system, Abigail has to consider the possibility that he allowed himself to be captured to gain access to the facility.
The plot device of further isolating our heroine also comes into play when she is faced with the realization that, with her one true friend gone, she doesn’t know who she can trust. Can the people she once worked beside, the people she was warned about, be trusted, or are they more concerned with saving their own hides?
As if the odds weren’t stacked against Abigail enough, a fail-safe procedure is launched that will destroy the “black site” and its secrets if she doesn’t acquire control within the hour.
Desperate to restore communications and call off the strike, Abigail and an old ally set out to find Hatchet and take control of the situation. But can she trust this person she once called a friend, or do they have an agenda of their own?
On the brink of losing control of the situation, she now has to contend with a rogue co-worker in her midst, a man that proves that, when push comes to shove, he is in it for himself. Can she survive this new threat while an escaped killer continues to roam her halls, a killer that continues to do what he does best?
With the time rapidly escaping, Abigail must now battle for her life against both friends and foes if she intends to make it to the end of the hour.
But what happens when she comes face-to-face with the man responsible for destroying her life. Will she get the answers she so desperately craves? Or will she discover that everything she was told was a lie?
