Starring James McAvoy (Wesley), Angelina Jolie (Fox) and Morgan Freeman(Sloan) this movie follows the story of a young unhappy worker who is secretly the son of a great killer.

He is treated like a dog at work, his bank account is almost empty and his girl friend is cheating on him with his best friend. He also suffers from severe "panic attacks"(which are actually acute killer traits that he later learns to use). Wesley's father was murdered by another killer(named Cross). One day Wesley is at a pharmacy looking for some medication, when he runs across Fox. Fox keeps him alive from his father's killer(who is also trying to kill him). While escaping from Cross, Fox explains to Wesley all about his ancestry and how he is the son of an extraordinary killer. Once they arrive at the compound Sloan brutally trains Wesley and remakes him into a great killer. Sloan explains to Will that he trained him so that he could kill Cross and revenge his father's death. After a few assassinations Wesley is asked by Sloan, "If he is ready to go after Cross". He agrees and go after Cross only to find out that Cross is actually his father, and that Sloan was actually using people to kill for him. Angered by deceit Wesley returns to the compound in an goes on a killing spree. He eventually runs into Sloan(who flees before the compound is destroyed). In a solemn moment Fox helps Wesley by killing other assassins and then finally taking her own life.
