Javier Bardem plays a brutal assassin  in No Country for Old Men

No Country for Old Men stars Josh Brolin, Tommy Lee Jones and Javier Bardem
Plot: Llewellyn Moss (Josh Brolin) is a trailer-living blue-collar welder, who, while out hunting one day, comes across the scene of a drug deal gone bad, complete with dead bodies, a pickup truck full of heroin and a briefcase packed with over $2 million. As Moss tries to figure out what to do with his find, he realizes he is being hunted by the money’s owner, a violent force of nature named Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem). Meanwhile, local sheriff Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones), one of the “Old Men” of the title, begins to search for Moss and Chigurh, as the two men quickly leave a wide swath of often-senseless violence behind them.

Perks: The Coen Brothers (of "Fargo" and "O Brother" fame) get deadly serious and deeply philosophical with this practically perfect adaptation of the Cormac McCarthy modern western novel of the same name.
