2,063 years ago, Roman Emperor and calendar inventor Julius Caesar was having his evening wine, thinking, "tomorrow's gonna be a great day - I'm Dictator-for-Life. What could go wrong?"
Little did he know. Beware the Ides of March!
My favorite screenplay assassin is John Wick (Keanu Reeves) from the John Wick films. Anybody who'll wipe out hundreds of bad guys because of his love for a dog is okay in my book. John Wick is closely followed by Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) from Atomic Blonde - not just because, well, it's Charlize Theron, but because she did it for democracy, and could kick, punch, choke, break necks, stab, shoot and hurl objects with the best of them. Tied for third would be Leon (Jean Reno) from The Professional, and Beatrix Kiddo, AKA The Bride (Uma Thurman) from the Kill Bill films.
That's a quartet of assassins that would make any screenwriter proud and any film patron happy. Who are your favorite film assassins/him men or hit women?
