Best Assassin Movies Of Time

Some movies are such that it makes rooting for the bad guys more fun than rooting for the good ones. The story of contract killers, how their characters evolve and the fact that they too, go through ordinary human problems brings out an empath in us that we’ve never known. We tend to live such movies; from the high-speed car chase sequences to the volley of gunshots, these movies win hearts by showing how the good guys went bad.
