A gun-for-hire known only as Agent 47 hired by a group known only as 'The Organization' is ensnared in a political conspiracy, which finds him pursued by both Interpol and the Russian military as he treks across Russia and Eastern Europe.
The character of Nika (Olga Kurylenko) draws inspiration from a recurring female character from the games known as Lei Ling (changed to 'Mei Ling' in 'Contracts'). Lei/Mei Ling was a prostitute that 47 saved on two occasions, receiving vital information in return.
Thank you for the introduction to Udre Belicoff.
Like many other movies portraying Interpol agents many mistakes are made concerning how Interpol works and operates. For example Interpol officers do not directly conduct inquiries in member countries and Interpol's constitution forbids its involvement in several types of crimes, such as political ones.
The Unrated version contains an extra 63 seconds of mostly violence.
