A list of the best assassin and hitman movies. What's the best assassin movie of all time? All of the best assassin and hitman movies have been included, but if you believe there's a quality assassin film missing from the list of the best assassin films, feel free to add it in yourself. What are the best assassin films? Assassin movies are almost always thrillers involved in the intrigue and complications that arise during the planning and due to the result of an assassination. Sometimes they are also biographical, chronicling the events in a person's life that led to them becoming a hit man and entering an industry that deals in death.

Unlike regular murder, that is often charged with emotion, for assassins it's just business. If you are looking for a good revenge film- something charged with hatred and emotion- check out the best revenge movieslist for more excellent action movies.

List Criteria: Movies must feature assassins and assassinations.
