Anna (Sasha Luss) is a Russian model with a secret- she's an assassin for the KGB. She was recruited by Alex (Luke Evans) and her boss is Olga (Helen Mirren). She is promised freedom after five years of service, but she finds those promises are empty. She crosses paths with a CIA agent (Cillian Murphy). It becomes a game of cat and mouse as the story reveals more layers as it goes on.

ANNA is one of Director Luc Besson's best action movies since LA FEMME NIKTA and LEON THE PROFESSIONAL. A great cast and great early 1990s detail add to this action thriller with some great action scenes.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
DRESSING A DOLL: COSTUMES OF ANNA- the costume designer talks about the costumes of the film
ANATOMY OF A SCENE: RESTAURANT FIGHT- behind-the-scenes footage show how they rehearsed, trained, and shot this action scene
UNNESTING A RUSSIAN DOLL: MAKING ANNA- a promotional fluff piece with behind-the-scenes footage, clips from the movie, and interviews with cast and crew
CONSTRUCTING THE CAR CHASE- a behind-the-scenes look at filming the car chase that proves to be a turning point for Anna's life

Previews for VALERIAN, ANEGEL HAS FALLEN, RAMBO LAST BLOOD, HELL BOY, and JOHN WICK 3

FINAL ANALYSIS: ANNA is at least worth the rent for the great action scenes and for fans of some of Luc Besson's better action films.
