Synopsis: An elite government hit man recieves news that he has a terminal disease, giving up his high stakes life to finally build a relationship with his estranged wife and daughter, whom he's previously kept at arm's length to keep out of danger. But when his agency offers him an experimental, potentially life-saving drug in exchange for one last mission, it's an offer he can't refuse.

Without Costner’s movie star equity, this thing could have fallen apart in the first 30 minutes. He keeps us involved, even as we’re...

It’s all absurd in a way that is typical Besson. But it’s also undeniably entertaining, and it marks a relatively pain-free way to kill, if...
