Mathieu Kassovitz developed this movie from his third short film, Assassins... (1992), which also told the story of a youth who gets a lesson in murder by a professional assassin. However, the title of the two-hour version was changed to "Assassin(s)" because of the Richard Donner film Assassins (1995) that came out between the two. See more »

Snoozer, don't listen to the pretentious IMDb reviews
Drawn out affair that has its good moments. However, it falls prey to its own desperate need to be socially relevant. TV desensitizes, we get it. Media is bad. We don't need to stare at a character staring at a television for five minutes straight.
Some twit actually said this film ends in an "orgy of violence." I'd like to know what film the pretentious dork was watching.
Also, what is the deal with this film basically being two films? It's like they decided to switch the main actor halfway and start over.
A somewhat decent drama that overstays its welcome, it would've been better were it edited down by a third.
