After 25 years, we are presented with new insight into Luc's world of action and espionage that will take bumpy rides, maybe not always go as planned but it is a journey worth sticking and giving attention.
Anna, starts as an innocent movie and twists us onto its paths that lead all over and back and forward. It's set in time where KGB and CIA are operating at peak level and hauls our main character Anna into its world. Maybe it will end where you imagined it going or maybe it will go totally different way but you'll have to stick to the end to witness it and there will definitely be different opinions on movie and how it turned out.
Now Anna has a lot to offer some decent choreographed action scenes as far as going to replicate most recent action movies in quiet same fashion but this time putting female protagonist. Anna (Sasha Luss) gives a pretty amazing performance considering this to be her first big movie we may be interested seeing more from her in future. Other leads that follow her like Mr. Evans, Mr. Murphy and Mrs. Mirren are pretty good touch to movie and expose their talents on screen that we may not seen yet.
Idea behind movie looks familiar if you start to compare it to recent action thriller movies and there is question is it necessary to ask yourself, Do we really need another movie like this? As it turns out it has a lot to offer plot wise and as acting goes but when it goes into directing it gets really choppy and there are moment when you wonder is it the same man directing the whole movie. Predictability that lies behind the movie can't be forgotten because you might find yourself in position where you figure a lot stuff before it happens and it can be annoying.
All in all it goes from interesting ride to boring one and then again into interesting which will put you in seat for a ride that will potentially satisfy you at the end. Action scenes are something to appreciate and plot turns and twists that will take you at many places. 2.5/4
