Formula flick with clever twist
20 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plot has a clever little twist, the titled assassin to a woman! Teri Polo is excellent, and veteran character actor Jeff Fahey plays his role with a somewhat sadistic cheerfulness. Tia Carrera, fresh off from Wayne's World, expands herself as Fahey's police partner. Martin Donovan is another fine bit of casting, as the somewhat nerdish, and weak will accountant who Quick was assigned to kill. The film benefits from another character actor in Robert Davi, who has to be one of the most busy men in Hollywood history, as somehow, he always manages to appear in at least 2 or 3 films a year. While some of the twist may appear a little tired, somehow, everything seems fresh and the cast is very energetic. One of the amazing things about the film is that manages to stray away from falling into the Thelma & Louise genre by not forcing Polo's Quick character to have an overtly feminist mannerisms. This was another one of those action flicks that HBO used to show as part of the long ago Action Thursday! series they used to have years ago. Alas, gone are those days. Now were stuck with recent movies ad nuesuem. Without a doubt, this movie is a plus for any action fan.
