 Top 10 Hitman Movies

The opening of Volume 2 greatly reprises the opening scenes of the first volume, the wedding rehearsal scenes and massacre. We are briefly introduced to The Bride, her groom-to-be, and their friends, before Bill arrives. Bill convinces The Bride that he has gracefully accepted her decision, and agrees to pose as her father as a cover story for everyone else. The Deadly Vipers then arrive and begin the massacre of everyone in the church. The film then cuts to the Bride driving her car to Bill’s location, as he is now the last on her death list.
Bill ventures to the California desert to warn his brother Budd (Michael Madsen), another former Deadly Viper, that the Bride will come for him next. Budd, now an overweight alcoholic, has put his assassin days behind him, living in a trailer and working as a bouncer at a local strip club, where he is verbally abused and generally treated poorly by the manager. The Bride arrives at Budd’s trailer that night, but Budd shoots her in the chest with rock salt and injects her with a sedative. Budd calls Elle Driver (Daryl Hannah) and offers to sell her the Bride’s Hanz? sword for $1 million. Budd then buries the Bride alive with a flashlight in a grave.

4. Wanted

 Top 10 Hitman Movies

The hitman thriller goes into overkill when office nobody James McAvoy is inducted into a 1000-year-old fraternity of super-assassins by pistol-packing Angelina Jolie and her boss Morgan Freeman. Based on the ultraviolent comic books and orchestrated by the director of Russian blockbusters Night Watch and Day Watch, it’s a brain-blowing symphony of somersaulting vehicles, gravity-defying gunplay… and exploding rodents.

3. The Bourne Supremacy

Two years after the events in The Bourne Identity, Bourne and his girlfriend, Marie Kreutz, are living in Goa, India. Bourne is beginning to recover some of his memories, and he is troubled by disjointed flashbacks of an assassination he carried out in The Brecker Hotel in Berlin. Meanwhile, in Berlin, a CIA officer under Deputy Director Pamela Landy is trading $3 million for the “Neski Files”, documents about the theft of $20 million from the CIA seven years earlier. During the exchange, a Russian assassin named Kirill arrives to intercept the selling. He plants two bombs in the basement electrical circuit: one on the main and the other on a subline with Jason Bourne’s fingerprint. The bomb on the main line kills the power while Kirill kills the agent and the source, and steals the files and money, which he gives to Russian oil magnate Yuri Gretkov.

Six weeks later, The Guardian correspondent Simon Ross meets with someone to discuss Bourne and Operation Treadstone. The CIA begin tracking Ross after he mentions “Operation Blackbriar” over a cell phone call. Bourne contacts Ross to meet with him after learning that Ross has been investigating Operation Treadstone, but realizes that the CIA are tracking Ross.

Pamela Landy, who had hunted Bourne six weeks earlier unsuccessfully, is brought in to help Vosen. After searching Ross’ notes, they figure out that Ross’ source was Neal Daniels, CIA Station Chief in Madrid, who was formerly involved in Treadstone and actively involved in Blackbriar. Bourne, having taken Ross’ bag shortly after he was killed, is led to Daniels’ office Madrid but finds it empty. After he subdues a CIA team sent by Vosen and Landy, Nicky Parsons arrives.
