The Assassin

The Assassin (1993)

2 corrected entries

Corrected entry: When Bridget Fonda meets and moves in with her boyfriend, she not only gives him no "back story" - meaning a lie - about her life, but when he asks her questions, she fumbles and makes things up on the spot. She was trained at an elite top secret government agency - there is no way they would not have trained her in how to lie and give herself a good cover story.

Correction: This is NOT a film mistake. It is your opinion of her actions and how you think she should have acted. It is your rewriting of the screenplay. Is it impossible for a woman befuddled by love to act in a slightly ditzy manner? No. It is unlikely a trained spy would, but unlikely is not impossible, and therefore this is not a film mistake.

Corrected entry: When Bridget Fonda wakes up in a room, the guy that's in charge shows her pictures of her staged funeral and tells her Plot 48, Row 12. Later in the scene when she asks him what happens to her if she refuses to become the spy or whatever she becomes he says Row 48, Plot 12.

Correction: Well, Plot 48, Row 12 is already "occupied". Row 48, Plot 12 might be an ironic reference to another grave.

Mistakes

In the scene where Maggie goes to the restaurant with Bob, he offers her the case where the weapon is. Bob says, 'It's loaded'. Close inspection shows the clip chamber is empty (not loaded), and a cartridge clip is positioned beside the weapon in its tailored slot in the custom case. Maggie closes the case and says, 'I don't understand.' After Bob explains what she is to do, then leaves, Maggie opens the case again and suddenly there's a clip in the weapon (loaded) and another one beside it. The weapon was not loaded when she looked the first time.
