  1. 1Kill Bill: Volume 1

    In what is one of the best revenge stories you will see in movie history, Uma Thurman a.k.a. The Bride, embarks on a long journey to kill her former assassin colleagues. This movie, together with its second installment, shows what a true vengeance-themed film needs to look like. And Quentin Tarantino made Uma Thurman look like a true assassin in this flick, all thanks to some signature slasher moves.

    Saoirse Ronan might just be the prettiest assassin you'll see in the entirety of the cinema. In Hanna, she portrays how the life of a genetically-modified young girl is changed after finding out about her true identity. We assure you, you'll never look at assassins the same way again after watching this action-thriller flick.

  2. 3Leon: The Professional

    7

    Well, what else is left to say? This movie introduced Natalie Portman to every cinema fan and she did enter with a bang by playing an orphaned young lady-turned-assassin. 'Leon: The Professional' shows how the business of killing can change a person's life, either for better or for worse. 

  1. 4Pulp Fiction

    3

    We've got another Tarantino film on the list in the form of Pulp Fiction. And we think that the director has mastered the art of creating revenge-themed hitman movies just like this one. Follow the lives of two mob hitmen, a boxer, a gangster's wife, and two diner bandits, who may all end up assassinating one another.

  2. 5No Country for Old Men

    3

    This gritty hitman-themed film has earned Javier Bardem (who plays the money-driven Anton Chigurh) an Academy Award and you'll find out why once you've watched the film. No Country For Old Men presents a rare theme in assassin movies, utilizing a more moral and cerebral approach in going around its story. 


     

  3. 6The Bourne Identity

    2

    To be honest, Matt Damon can't be real assassin with his unassuming looks, right? But this movie creates the perfect plot build-ups and scenes to make all clueless viewers aware of the movie's premise. Watch this film to follow the story of Jason Bourne as he struggles to find his true identity amidst CIA conspiracies and numerous shootouts.

  4. 7John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

    1

    This latest John Wick film contains more violent scenes and more things that would make you love the famed hitman. Find out what is bound to happen when the assassin finds himself stripped off the High Table's services, while also having a $14 million bounty on his head.

  5. 8Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai

    1

    You'd see a lot of assassinations here and there in this film, as expected. But what could be more striking in Ghost Dog, is seeing how a former mafia hitman turns into the ways of the samurai as he tries to change his life. 

  6. 9Taxi Driver

    1

    Taxi Driver may be one of Robert De Niro's most underrated films ever. Here, you'll see how the veteran actor plays the role of a cab driver/wannabe hero, as he tries to assassinate a presidential candidate, then afterwards directing his attentions toward rescuing a 12-year-old prostitute.

    "Another of the noir films that I really like as this explored much of the decisionmaking and motives of the protagonist. It's so amazing seeing Javier Bardon being cast as the assassin Anton Chigurh. A great movie."
