Storyline

A master assassin who specializes in shooting his victims twice in the head, a "double tap", may not be everything he initially seems to be. An undercover officer ends up teaming up with him after she is not killed in one of his hits on a drug lord and after she determines he is an ex-officer out to kill only those who stand outside the law and are deserving of being murdered. Her investigations lead to dirty officers and uncertainty about whom she can trust. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Hit man with heart of gold, teams up with hot FBI agent
7 December 1998 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

This movie is a must for all Stephen Rea and Heather Locklear fans. Heather is great as a ultra cool FBI agent and you're rooting for Steve the whole flick. What a pair.
