The Gunman is a 2015 American action thriller film directed by Pierre Morel and written by Don Macpherson, Pete Travis and Sean Penn. It is based on the novel The Prone Gunman, by Jean-Patrick Manchette. The movie stars Penn, with Idris Elba, Ray Winstone, Mark Rylance, and Javier Bardem appearing in supporting roles.
The plot of the story is about an ex-soldier Jim Terrier (Sean Penn) who develops feelings for a humanitarian doctor Annie (Jasmine Trinca) while he is on work in the Democratic State of Congo and the assignment is to assassinate a member of the Congo Government. Their romance, however is short-lived due to Jim’s assignment, after completing his task; he leaves the country without taking Annie along.
Eight years later, as he comes back to Congo, Jim is targeted himself for assassination. With a few friends he goes to Europe in order to track down some of his former partners but instead finds the old war dogs like Cox (Mark Rylance) and Felix (Javier Bardem) who are now fighting on much different issues. Therefore soon Jim realizes that he can turn to the way of violence or gun neither could he reclaim his love for Annie is an easier way. Therefore it’s unfair to say “The Gunman” is a bad film. After all, it’s expertly shot, scored and edited.
