I'm a big fan of the assassination genre—even when kids are doing the assassinating! Let's see, there was Natalie Portman in The Professional, (a barely legal) Anne Parillaud in La Femme Nikita, Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone... the list goes on! And coming soon there's Hanna, the smart, stylish new assassination flick from Joe Wright (Atonement, The Soloist) which looks pretty goddamn awesome, if you ask me. Check it out—and unless you want your neck snapped, you'll never accept a hug from a nine-year-old again!
