In the new thriller Polar, Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal) plays the world’s top assassin, Duncan Vizla, a.k.a. the Black Kaiser, who is settling into retirement when his former employer marks him as a liability. Against his will, Vizla finds himself back in the game, going head to head with an army of younger, faster, more ruthless killers who will stop at nothing to silence him.
