I Work For the KGB, Baby! - Anna review by BG

Spoiler Alert
09/02/2020

Luc Besson is back in NIKITA territory as assassin/model Anna works for Luke Evans (KGB) and Cillian Murphy (CIA), taking both to bed and killing for each. What she really wants is "out", as assassins end up getting assassinated, but it isn't going to be easy. With Moscow, Paris and Bahamas locations, this is a well made slick thriller, a bit comic-strip, not up there with LEON, but has some nice twists. While I admired blonde-haired Anna in action (Sasha Lust?), fighting and killing in her black stockings, Helen Mirren, a spectacled, grumpy, aggressive, cynical, Rosa Klebb-like KGB boss, steals the film.

Stylish action thriller - Anna review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
26/11/2019

With Luc Besson writing, directing and even holding the camera, you know you’re in for a film that’s going to zip along cinematically, with visual interest in every frame. This one harks back to Nikita, with model Sasha Luss as a Russian government assassin. The elliptical plot constantly surprises with twists that make no sense until Besson backtracks to reveal what’s really going on. His intention (as he says on the DVD Extras) was for the plot to resemble a nest of Russian dolls, which are revealed one by one.

Given that, there’s nothing here we haven’t seen before, with an indestructible hero/heroine fighting insuperable odds. If only Besson could invest more in character he’d be making brilliant films. This one is instantly forgettable, with a lead actress who should stick to modelling, but it’s bold, brash, beautiful and great fun to watch. After watching the current crop of British social-realist films, mired in miserabilia, it’s a pleasure to sit back and wallow in a film made by a director who’s in love with the visual possibilities of cinema.

Enjoyable and stylish - Anna review by PC

Spoiler Alert
15/01/2020

Luc Besson's status has definitely dropped over the past few years, with a succession of euro-set thrillers offering little in terms of substance. This would appear to be the same but a more twisty storyline makes this more interesting. Sill not reaching the heights of Nikita or Leon but a step in the right direction.
