Director: Martin Campbell
Starring: Maggie Q, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Patrick, Ori Pfeffer
Maggie Q stars as a new action heroine to root for in The Protégé. In 1991 Vietnam, a young girl named Anna is taken in by a hitman after she leaves behind a room of dead bodies. She clearly knows her away around a weapon. Thirty years later, Anna, now played by Maggie Q, works as a hired assassin with her mentor, Moody (Samuel L. Jackson) right by her side. As she reminds Moody, “We don’t send anyone away who didn’t have it coming.”
She’s quick on her feet always a few steps ahead of her adversaries. By day, she works at an antique bookstore. Her latest customer, Michael Rembrandt (Michael Keaton), knows what he’s come in for, Anna herself. It becomes a cat and mouse game for Anna as Michael is connected to Anna’s past bringing her back to Vietnam where it all began.
