Anna (2019)



Critic Consensus: Anna finds writer-director Luc Besson squarely in his wheelhouse, but fans of this variety of stylized action have seen it all done before -- and better.

Critic Reviews for Anna

All Critics (67) | Top Critics (12)

[Besson is] riffing on spy movies and their inherent double crosses and triple crosses, stopping just short of parody but letting the audience in on the trick. And thanks to Besson and a willing cast, the trick's a pretty good one.

What ultimately sinks the film is its overwhelming blandness, from the lack of creativity employed in Anna's many kills to Besson's inability to choreograph a pulse-racing action scene...

June 21, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

But unlike Besson's bugnuts, energetically dopey Scarlett Johansson vehicle Lucy, Anna is more invested in winking at the audience than being fun.

June 21, 2019 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Watching Anna brings with it a profound sense of déjà vu. If only anything else about it was profound.

June 21, 2019 | Full Review…

The gunplay in Anna grows repetitive before long, and the heroine's invincibility feels like a cheap substitute for the power that Besson wields over her.

June 21, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Over and over, the film proceeds down one narrative path, then jumps back as each twist reveals a new, hidden thread. Besson keeps the story and action clear while deftly slipping in minor details that prove crucial later on.
