Writer, Producer, and Director Luc Besson was accused of sexual misconduct during production of this movie. Although no charges were filed due to lack of evidence, the studio and distributors subsequently distanced themselves from the movie, releasing it without official screenings and with only a minimum of publicity. This movie, which was supposed to be the breakthrough for model-turned-actress Sasha Luss, only made thirty million dollars worldwide, which could mean the end for Besson's EuropaCorp studio, that was already struggling from his previous box-office failure, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017).

Stylish and Wild Action Film with a Rather Weak but Fun Plot
Not as well written as his Nikita, but Besson keeps the body count flowing in Anna with far greater numbers. Much of the film keeps you guessing and then answers with several flashback scenes.
Some of the wild action is on the outrageous level of a Bruce Willis Die Hard film. but just as enjoyable. The lead Sasha Luss does a decent job as Anna the assassin.
