Timothy Olyphant is an international assassin with a bar code tattooed on the back of his shaved head; trained from childhood as an emotionless killing machine, he fears no one (except, perhaps, the checkout clerk). In the finest tradition of adolescent identification figures, he's not only ruthless, dispatching numerous baddies with hair-trigger shots to the head, but profoundly desexualized, brushing off the insistent come-ons of a slinky prostitute (Olga Kurylenko) he's taken under his wing. Adapted from a popular video game, this propulsive actioner involves a hit against the Russian president (Ulrich Thomsen) that turns out to be a setup, with the hero pursued simultaneously by Interpol and Russia's FSB. Xavier Gens directed (100 min., 2007).
