Director: Ang Lee.
The protagonist, named Henry Brogan, is a professional hitman. Over the years of service, he won the recognition of colleagues and the respect of his superiors. The guy always managed to fulfill the goals set by the leadership, leaving the deadly situations safe and sound. Having served for many years, he hoped to get a well-deserved vacation and retire with a calm soul, but was mistaken in this regard. The boss, having heard about his intentions to leave the organization, decided to conduct a tough conversation with the best of the employees. But the boy refused to work further, despite the persuasion and intimidation of the evil boss.
Then, the leader had no choice but to implement the prepared plan, in case of a tricky situation, which, in his opinion, was happening at the moment in his office. Shortly before the conversation, Clay ordered that several structural DNA cells be taken from Henry and placed in a safe vault. Using the extracted material, he was going to recreate his clone, and in order not to lose a good subordinate, he created a young assistant, similar to a former agent, surpassing the former with two parameters - youth and strength.
