A deadly assassin works for a black ops organisation, traveling the globe specialising in high profile hits. When a job goes dangerously wrong, she is forced to fight for her own survival.
OK, well that’s the dust jacket synopsis and as a big fan of
Despite the actors’ best efforts to bring this poorly told story into something remotely like a decent action film, it totally missed the mark. What mark that was, though, is hard to ascertain. Neither a quirky ‘In Bruge’ dark humour-thriller, nor high octane action movie, it hovered well below all of these, resulting in a drawn out and disjointed film with almost no redeeming qualities. Frankly an exceptional waste of talent that I suspect will result in no sequel, despite the suggested ending.
Verdict: Spare yourself a dull 1h 37m of your life and do some knitting. **
