Lethally beautiful and incredibly efficient in her dangerous line of work, Ava, a taciturn lone wolf and cold-blooded assassin, is starting to develop a conscience. Having beaten her alcohol and substance dependence with the help of Duke, her grizzled mentor of death and father figure, more and more, unstable Ava lets guilt get in the way of closing her "deals", attracting unwanted attention by breaking protocol. As a result, after a botched attempt to liquidate a high-profile target, Ava reunites with her estranged family after eight long years of absence, unaware that she has just signed her death warrant. Now, as Ava tries to settle old scores and reconnect with her loved ones, every killer in the business is after her. Can Ava rely on Duke to have her back?Written by

At the end of the movie, Ava exits the Mandarin Oriental to follow Simon. The next scene shows them on the North Bank bridge, a good 40-45 minutes walk from 776 Boylston St. There's no way they could have walked so far in such a short amount of time. See more »

Classic Hollywood tragicomedy of incompetence
This is classic Hollywood comedy: Actor (played by Jessica Chastain) who also owns the production company (Freckle Films) hires another actor with one hit as a director to direct an action flick written by his actor friend and they get many famous actors to act on it. How hard it is to do an action film with famous actors. It's surely a huge hit.
Little they know, the actor-writer is not a good writer and actor-producer is not good at reading scripts as he think he is. Because everyone is friends with everyone, nobody is honest. Hilarity ensues. Experience is tragic for the audience. Comedy for the Hollywood insiders.
