The Best Assassin Movies

List Criteria: Movies must feature assassins and assassinations.

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 lead 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 movies list for more excellent action movies.
