Put it this way, if you had to combine a percentage of the DNA from each of my all time and most favorite American actors you would get this exact cast, putting it in another way, if 20th Century Fox had to sit down and intentionally create a production around the top five most invigorating and creative actors in the game the outcome would be this film. That said, If I had to try and create a visual for you I would say this is the modern day version of the 2010 action thriller starring Angelina Jolie called Salt but with about 50% more action and twice the amount of next level stunt choreography. I stand by that proclamation in its entirety, this is the single best creation I have ever seen from the legendary director Francis Lawrence who i just adored in The Hunger Games Catching Fire, I Am Legend and Constantine. This is the mystery masterpiece starring Mary-Louise Parker, Matthias Schoenaerts and the dazzling Charlotte Rampling and is premised around the most unlikely of scenarios, though, one that would leave anyone in an extremely unsettling predicament. When I comes to script originality I have seen few as handsome as this. Just picture a very ordinary girl, going about a very ordinary day that is forced into a somewhat undesirable situation to get money together for her family. Yet, while she is in this already precarious setting a very violent and unexpected hit occurs on her Russian mob boss customer. Faced with a do or die situation the assassination squad decide rather then ending her, they would instead make her whole, recruit her and train her to become one of them. Though, the only catch being is that she needs to immediately cut all ties with her family and previous life. Its that or die! Extremely well written, loads of twists and turns and of the best and most unpredictable thrillers I have seen since The Maze Runner and the original John Wick, the ideal production for high paced, on the edge of your seat, though at times very violent story lovers!
