Near Retirement
23 February 2019 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The efficient hitman Duncan Vizla (Mads Mikkelsen) will retire in a couple of days and will receive an eight-million dollars pension from the organization where he works as retirement plan. However his employer Blut (Matt Lucas) decides to double-cross Duncan to save the amount despite the advice of his assistant Vivian (Katheryn Winnick) to pay the pension to him. Duncan moves to an isolated cabin in Montana and befriends his only neighbor Camille (Vanessa Hudgens), a shy young woman. Meanwhile Vivian hires Duncan for one last job to kill the assassins of the retired hitman Michael Green, but with the intention of killing Duncan. However he kills the gang and returns to his house. Blut decides to send a team of assassins to kill Duncan at home. Will they succeed?

"Polar" is an action thriller with a violent and brutal story of double-cross and revenge. The plot uses many clichés but anyway is entertaining with Mads Mikkelsen performing a very tough assassin seeking revenge. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Polar"
