The Protégé follows in the footsteps of movies like “Atomic Blonde”, “Peppermint” and “The Rhythm Section”.
Anna (Maggie Q) is rescued as a child by the legendary assassin Moody (Samuel L. Jackson). As Anna grows up, she is trained in the family business to one day take over.
But suddenly when Moody is violently killed, Anna’s world is once again upended. Anna comes to her senses and vows revenge against whoever murdered Moody. As Anna searches for Moody’s killers, she becomes entangled with a suave killer (Michael Keaton) and their attraction to each other goes way beyond the usual cat and mouse. The story unfolds from there…
The story is decent. There is no plot to speak of. The movie is part violent, bloody and sexy, with a comedic twist. The movie really finds its self in the third act. Everything comes together nicely. I felt the end could have been handled a bit better.
This is a 3 Star Movie!!
