The Protege (2021)
The Protege: Directed by Martin Campbell. With Maggie Q, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, David Rintoul. Rescued as a child by the legendary assassin Moody, Anna is the world’s most skilled contract killer. However, when Moody is brutally killed, she vows revenge for the man who taught her everything she knows.
A terrible poster for a movie that had terrible marketing, but ended up being an enjoyable experience, and I dare say one of Maggie Q’s best roles. The plot it self is familiar, she’s a hitman with special skill done wrong, but it’s the emotional acting and emotional baggage surrounding that story trope that works so well.
Give it a chance if you have the opportunity, I enjoyed it greatly.
