Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
What happened to Luc Besson. From the heady heights of Nikita and Leon to the brilliant but more controversial Fifth Element he was the darling of early 90’s cinema. But it all went a bit wrong after that. Joan Of Arc to Lucy and everything in between director Besson was desperately in need of a hit. Sadly Anna isn’t it. A messy plot, phoning it in performances and a bloated run time does little to help what is yet another rerun of Nikita. It’s just pretty dull and commands neither your time or your energy when there are FAR better action films this year (see John Wick 3). Sadly yet another miss for the once great director.
Best Bit: The restaurant fight… maybe
Buy, Stream, Avoid: Avoid
If You Liked this Try: Nikita, Leon, The Fifth Element, John Wick 3: Parabellum
