Ava is a deadly assassin who works for a black ops organization, traveling the globe specializing in high profile hits. When a job goes dangerously wrong she is forced to fight for her own survival.
User Reviews: The first 30 minutes were really promising.
Good action, suspenseful vibe, great acting… but as soon as one of the secondary character Michael appears, everything flops.
Not only because of his insecure and awkwardly mediocre acting, which reminded me of some cheap drama or love story soap opera… but because he represents an entry point into Ava’s past. A boring past which has nothing to add to the story or her character.
So if we crop off all the family stuff and stick to the action… then it could be a solid 7.
In stead it is a poor 6.
Jessica Chastain and John Malkovich performances are great. Colin Farrell somehow sticks to his (good) average, but who really disappoints is Geena Davis. Her approach personally felt to me like "Let’s make it clear – I’ll say some words, get the money and leave."
