Rescued as a child and raised by legendary assassin Moody (Samuel L. Jackson), Anna (Maggie Q) was trained to become the world’s most skilled contract killer. When Anna learns that Moody has been brutally killed, she vows revenge. On the murderer’s trail, Anna is entangled with an enigmatic hit man (Michael Keaton) and, as their confrontation turns deadly, the loose ends of a life spent killing weave themselves ever tighter in this adrenaline-fueled action-thriller from the director of Casino Royale.



  • Too dumb to review.

    By Joe Buckstrap
    Stupid cubed, but Maggie Q put so much effort into this bomb that I have to give it three stars for her physical effort - though it was still too hard to suspend disbelief.
  • Terrible

    By Forcefan10
    Sorry, but no. love all the actors/actress. But this was poorly produced, trite, commodity material making a buck off the genre.
  • Brilliant

    I like everything about this movie. The actors, the director, the sound, the music, the cinematography. Fun with amazing action scenes.

    This movie is a great action packed movie.

    By Mikey-M
    If you like just senseless killing with lots off gross blood screens with no real story, then this is that movie for you.

    Good entertainment. It did not disappoint.
  • Unwatchable

    By simonred
    Got about half an hour in and just turned it off. Everything about this - despite its decent cast - screams 90s straight-to-video. It’s not quite as cliché and boring as the latest string of Bruce Willis movies that are gumming up the release lists - but it’s just as unwatchable.
  • I like it

  • Great elements, cast, concept, but left me flat.

    I hate to write bad reviews and I think very highly of Michael Keaton, Maggie Q (whose potential I think she's still yet to totally tap), and of course Samuel Jackson. I can enjoy this type of escapist action film more often than I would think, and often write reviews defending such. I can say some of the fight scenes, e.g., with Maggie Q using a bunch of flat metal trays or whatever, were very well done. Just somehow it failed to grab me at a deep emotional level which, even a simple plot of early childhood trauma by an evil person or person setting the course for the main character's life and action and violence, can very often do. Anyway, the cinematography and set decorations, or visual environs, were well done, or opulent. Maybe it's just me, though. I see some good reviews, so study them also.
