(2020) (Blake Lively, Jude Law) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Dramatic Thriller: A woman trains to become an assassin in order to avenge the deaths of her parents and siblings in a plane crash.
- It's been three years since Stephanie Patrick (BLAKE LIVELY) lost her parents and siblings in a plane crash that claimed the lives of several hundred other people. Since then, her life has been a downward spiral into drugs and prostitution, with bruises all over her body displaying the sort of clientele she's servicing.
She thinks the next man who's booked time with her will be just more of the same, but he isn't interested in having sex with her. Instead, Keith Proctor (RAZA JAFFREY) is a reporter who believes that the crash wasn't an accident and instead was the result of a bombing. And not just that, but that the bomb maker, Reza (TAWFEEK BARHOM), is freely walking the streets of London.
After being unable to kill that terrorist herself when given the chance, and following something bad that happens to that reporter, Stephanie seeks out his source, known to her only by map coordinates. She ends traveling a long way to find Iain Boyd (JUDE LAW), a former intelligence agent who knows what's going on but initially wants nothing to do with her. She eventually wears down that opinion, however, and he ends up training her in the ways of being an assassin.
When he thinks she's ready, he sends her on her way, with marching orders to find another former intelligence agent, Marc Serra (STERLING K. BROWN), who knows who was behind the bombing beyond Reza. Armed with that information and her new set of assassin skills, Stephanie sets out to dole out justice on those responsible for killing her family.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?

- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
- For violence, sexual content, language throughout, and some drug use.
