Overheated action rampage in which a downtrodden, panic-prone accountant (James McAvoy) is recruited by the leader (Morgan Freeman) of a secret fraternity of assassins and trained by its members (Angelina Jolie, Marc Warren, Konstantin Khabensky and Dato Bakhtadze) to avenge the murder of his estranged father (David O'Hara), who was also their colleague. Spectacular special effects fail to camouflage the random violence and glamorization of killing that underpin Kazak director Timur Bekmambetov's slick comic-book adaptation. Bloody violence, graphic sexual activity, rear nudity, beatings, nonmarital cohabitation, pervasive rough and crude language, a few profanities and birth-control references. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
