An action film typically has a list of ingredients that compels audiences to tune in—hard-hitting sequences, global destinations and a killer instinct for some characters. But with Martin Campbell’s latest delve into the action world, ‘The Protégé,’ audiences will get far more than they ordered.
Maggie Q stars in the film as Anna, a girl who was rescued and raised by Moody (Samuel L. Jackson) and taught everything she knows. What audiences get a peek into is how that platonic father/daughter relationship is formed and strengthened all while Anna tries to deal with her past that was traumatizing but also fuels her. It’s the relationships that keep the action going and also what sets this film apart.
