The naming of Saoirse Ronan's character Daisy was an intentional tribute to the Czech New Wave film Daisies (1966), another film about two young girls who experience an odyssey of self-examination. See more »

This is a great little film, quirky and intelligent. It is not your typical assassin film, and it may be too eccentric for some people's taste, but I enjoyed it. There are many levels to the story - without giving anything away - and it can be enjoyed on several levels. The teenage assassins are delightfully ruthless yet - at least at times - also endearingly vulnerable. All the leads give good performances, and Ronan and Gandolfin both give especially good performances. It is quite bloody, in a literal and figurative sense, but not gratuitously. I was disappointed that it wasn't critically acclaimed and that it didn't do well at the box office - the latter may have been been due to poor marketing. I really enjoyed it, though it wasn't a masterpiece, it was entertaining.
