In the hotel room after the first big shoot out when Cisco and Vince come in and hit on the girls in the tub, it is evident that the water is made to look bloody by a red light and not fake blood added to it. This is evident because one of the girls has on a white tank top which clearly remains white although she is soaked in this tub and it should have changed red or pink due to the blood in the water.

Indeed Mark Wahlberg is a bit cack in most of his films, but The Big Hit is a masterpiece of comedy. The action is fun, but is not meant to be taken seriously. I think that some people might have watched this film expecting a standard action film, in which case I can understand their disappointment. It's just good fun and Lou Diamond Phillips is brilliant. His over-the-top performance is perfect and is something I'll never forget.
The Big Hit is one of those films where you either get it or you don't. If you don't then I can understand how it might seem a bit two-dimensional. However, anyone who hasn't seen it should take a chance.
