(2021) (Maggie Q, Michael Keaton) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Action: When she believes her mentor has been murdered, a highly trained assassin sets out to find out who's responsible and make them pay.
Back when she was a kid in Vietnam, Anna Dutton (MAGGIE Q) saw men murder her entire family. Rescued and then raised and trained by hitman Moody Dutton (SAMUEL L. JACKSON), she's now a highly trained assassin who works alongside him. Despite their line of work, Moody has a guilty conscience about a job long ago that left the young son of arms dealer Edward Hayes (DAVID RINTOUL) orphaned, and Moody now wants to make amends. But his act of looking for the now grown man results in violent retribution that seemingly results in his death.
Wanting to find out who's responsible and make them pay, Anna returns to her home country where she gets some initial help from American ex-pat Billy Boy (ROBERT PATRICK) as she tries to find Hayes' former business partner, Vohl (PATRICK MALAHIDE). But that results in her having to contend with two men, Duquet (RAY FEARON) and Michael Rembrandt (MICHAEL KEATON), who work for the person pulling the strings. While both want her dead, Rembrandt also finds himself drawn to Anna, thus resulting in an odd "relationship" between the two as she leaves a swath of bodies in her wake.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Older teens might, especially if they're into R-rated action films and/or are fans of any of the cast members.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
- For strong and bloody violence, language, some sexual references, and brief nudity.
