Anna (Sasha Luss) is a young beautiful girl who managed to make a career in the fashion world. More recently, she was a simple model from Moscow, but in a very short time, she was able to enter the elite. Once she entered the hotel of an influential and very dangerous person, after which a whole mountain of corpses was discovered there. The girl is being interrogated by special services, but she has absolutely nothing to tell them on this fact. She looks scared, and no one suspects her. Anna goes free and begins preparing for a new business. Under the guise of a fragile beauty, is hiding the world's most dangerous assassin, who has not yet misfired. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (

Cillian Murphy's character carries a Colt 1911 handgun as his duty weapon. This weapon is a single-action only handgun which requires the hammer to be cocked back before firing. In every scene with him pointing the weapon the hammer is always forward. A trained CIA operative would not make this mistake as the gun would not be able to fire with the hammer in this position.

User Reviews

People praise John Wick and the sequels, but hate on this? Why exactly?
23 April 2021 | by uolevivittuSee all my reviews

Because it's the same kind of thing... no plausibility, no human interest, plenty of nasty violence, 1 antihero wins all fights against impossible odds. Violence is what people see these for, right? I think Wick movies are vastly overrated, and this wasn't bad. It's nowhere as good as something like Leon The Professional, because that movie had heart, not just violence. Here, just violence (and some sex), some plot twists, who double-crosses who. But the action is well made, and bodycount is high.
