Those Who Wish Me Dead (2021)

A bit of an oddity this. Angelina Jolie is undoubtedly the headline act, but she is one of a small group of 'good guys' here that are somewhat disconnected and dispersed. 

One could make a case that the true protagonists are the pair of hitmen, played by Aiden Gillen and Nicholas Hoult, with their own (bad) buddy movie plotline. 

The duo have been tasked with eliminating a kid who could bring down one of those whopping criminal conspiracies, so a bit like Witness, except we never learn the detail and there's a prodigious fire in the forests of Monatana, that feels a bit like padding.
