[Narrating, prior to performing an assassination in Prague]
My job takes me to a lot of places. It's got its down sides: I sleep alone. I eat alone. I'm used to it, though. I'd like to meet someone. But it's tough when you live out of a suitcase. I go where I'm told... do what I'm told. I shouldn't complain. The work is steady. The money's good. But it's not for everyone.
[Again narrating, after he's completed the "hit"]
My name is Joe. This is what I do.

First of all, for those of you seeking an incredibly deep and intriguing story line, this movie is not for you! This is a movie for people who just want to see some good solid action and good entertainment.
When i first saw the grade on IMDb i was a bit skeptical, but after seeing the movie i was quite satisfied with it.
Sure, it is quite predictable and the acting is not ground breaking. But the lasting action was quite entertaining for me.
The biggest flaw of this movie is probably the story line. Some parts of the story are rather rushed without telling background information. Sometimes the story feels a bit rushed with more focus on the action than the actual reason for an event to happen. Some parts of the movie feel a bit overdone and unnecessary making the main character look quite dumb...
I find this movie worth a 6,4 (i did not want to give it a 6 because i do find it deserves higher than a 6, this explains the 7 star rating)
