Top 5 Assassin Movies

The word assassin is defined as:

“one who kills for fanatical or monetary reasons.”

So, obviously, qualifying movies need to deal with someonewho kills for fanatical or monetary reasons. One of the leads must be an assassin, or the story needs to revolvearound an assassin or assassins (or the threat of one).  It can’t just be a group of criminals whohappen to kill people (Snatch). Andit can’t be someone hell bent on revenge (Conanthe Barbarian).
