Ex-foreign agent turned assassin for hire tracks down rogue government spies but her past brings her face-to-face with a formidable opponent.
This is a story of a single-minded and highly motivated ex-agent turned assassin named Velvet who uses her specific skills to enact justice on those who betrayed her. During her path to revenge, she encounters not one but two opponents that stand between her and absolution.
This film is a cross between John Wick and Sucker Punch with a nod to Atomic Blonde and Red Sparrow.
Why Blue Assassin? “Blue” is used as an adjective for a woman as learned, intellectual.
