Get ready to get your butts once again ultimately kicked by a girl in ‘Anna’ (2019)!

French action movie maestro Luc Besson is back on familiar territory with his latest effort, the female assassin-led thriller Anna.

After the unmitigated disaster of his big-budget blockbuster Valerian, Besson has returned to the kind of filmmaking where he first his name with the likes of Leon and La Femme Nikita.

Written and directed by the French filmmaker, Anna centres on another femme fatale, Sasha Luss’s Anna and her extreme exploits as a gun-for-hire.

Sasha Luss is in Ultimate Company

Coming off like a more intense and inventive version of Atomic Blonde, the film also represents Luss’s first starring role following a career as a supermodel.

The Russian appears to be in her element though as the slick trailer demonstrates. She’s ably supported too with a cast that includes Helen MirrenCillian MurphyLuke EvansLera AbovaAlexander Petrov, and Anna Krippa.

Big, brash and pretty ballsy, it’s the kind of movie Besson made back in the 90s but cranked up to 10.
