Assassin Next Door Reviews
Good performances from Olga Kurylenko and Ninette Tayeb.
Two young ladies with troubled pasts live in the same rundown apartment in the wrong side of town. One woman is pregnant by her abusive husband and has little hope for a better life. The other woman is a reluctant assassin and has a daughter in another country that her ex-husband is raising. Both ladies need a new lease on life and may be able to combine their strength to accomplish their goals.

Danny Lerner, director of Frozen Days, delivers The Assassin Next Door. The storyline for this picture is fairly interesting but a bit slow and methodical. This picture has a similar plot to Danny the Dog, La Feme Nikita, and Leon: The Professional. The action scenes are okay and the cast delivers better than average performances. The cast includes Olga Kurylenko, Zohar Shtrauss, and Liron Levo.
"I thought we'd celebrate properly with humus and vodka."
I found this picture on Amazon Prime and decided to give it a shot. I thought this would have fascinating action sequences and a worthwhile female bonding plot. Unfortunately, this plot takes a while to unfold and most of the action scenes are toward the end. The picture is definitely above average but not on par with the above referenced gems.

Grade: C+/B- (6.5)
Penampilan Olga di sini jauh lebih menarik dari semua rilisan Hollywood dia. Tidak ada dialog aksen Inggris yang kaku seperti di Quantum of Solace (film ini menggunakan bahasa Hebrew, Rusia, dan Inggris). Riasan di film ini yang natural pun makin membuat Olga lebih cantik. Secara keseluruhan, film ini lumayan menarik, jangan terlalu memikirkan logika film ini, nikmati saja akting dari 2 bintang cantik asal Ukraina dan Israel ini.
-Needs to be shot much darker and grittier to match the atmosphere of the plot. It's too bright overall.
-Plenty of women-beating going on throughout this sex-trafficking, abusive husband-laden film.
-Olga is a hottie.
-Character development is fairly well-done as that's what the film focuses on.
-Lesbian undertones never come to fruition.
-Final act and ending are well-done.
