**special mix** Double Scotch, but ice?! Well, some like it. Part of the story is standard thriller fare by now - the professional assassin becoming hunted. Some over-the-top action scenes there. Another part is the dysfunctional but caring family, with guilt, remorse, love, drama. Well played, but it's an unusual combination with the assassin story; and this special mix will appeal to some people - but my guess is: not many. Good actors giving good performances, solid work from other departments. But I don't think script and direction were bringing their A-game. The part I liked best were the close combat parts. These were worth watching, IMHO - the exhaustion that sets in, no matter how trained people are; well played, choreographed, and the make-up+fx departments did a good job as well. I can't recommend this in general; you need to have some special taste to enjoy it. In which case, have fun. And you...

Great watch, will likely watch again, and do recommend. This is probably one of the best assassin movies I've ever seen ("Smokin' Aces", "Kill Me Three Times" and "Hanna" come to mind as others), the best thing it does is be refreshing, normally when a "character comes home after a long time away" trope happens, it's all about re-integrating, and how that affects the family, and it becomes a dark dramedy about dysfunctional families. I'm not saying it doesn't to that, to a degree, but it does it in a spectacular way, and keeps it brief. It would actually be a solution to the main adversity of the movie, but because the premise is that she drags her work home with her, it's all about survival. Jessica Chastain, Colin Ferrell, and (especially) John Malkovich do an amazing job on rather down to Earth (if a bit psychotic and brutal) action sequences. While there is...

**Overall Score: 4.6/5, 4.5/5 Stars, 9/10 Stars** It's rare when you buy a movie unseen an end up enjoying it. I have always been a fan of Jessica Chastain, so when I saw a new movie with her in it, I knew I had to at least give it a shot. When I saw that it was inexpensive on VUDU, I figured why not just buy it. And I have to admit, I'm glad I did. **Storyline: 4/5**. Jessica Chastain plays Ava, an assassin working for a mysterious company who doesn't really appreciate the fact that she talks to her targets. When she begins questioning herself, she goes home to see her family and ends up in a struggle for her life. **Characters: 4/5**. Ava is the main focus of the movie, but we also get introduced to her mother, sister, ex-boyfriend, and handler throughout the movie. Each has...

This movie started out really slow, the middle was really slow and the end was predictable and slow, nice to see Gina Davis but if you want a decent movie watch something else.
