The Best Quotes From the Movie 'Anna'

Over 100 Ranker voters have come together to rank this list of The Best Quotes From the Movie 'Anna'

It's time to vote for the best Anna quotes. This sleek action thriller is the new film from director Luc Besson. He knows a few things about how to create exciting female-led action. His past films include La Femme Nikita, The Fifth Element, and Lucy, all of which had women as protagonists. Besson also made Leon: The Professional, which helped make Natalie Portman a star. 

This movie also seeks to create a star. Sasha Luss -- a former model who had a small role in Besson's last effort, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets -- plays Anna, a domestic abuse victim who is trained by the KGB to become an assassin. She eventually wants out of this way of life, which might be possible if she switches sides and cooperates with the CIA. Helen Mirren co-stars as Olga, a KGB bigwig. Luke Evans plays KGB agent Alex Tchenkov, and Cillian Murphy is American spy Lenny Miller. These characters all cross paths in exciting and unexpected ways. There are plenty of action sequences, as Anna gets to display her fighting skills.

Vote up the most memorable Anna quotes from the list below, whether funny lines or dramatic one liners.
