Low budget, high concept
13 June 2000 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A smart, involving little movie using only three major sets and a tight cast, Killing Time was a movie that I'm planning on checking out again.

The twisty story involves the murder of a cop. The cop's partner hires an Italian hit-woman to kill the man who murdered his partner, but he cannot afford her price so he hires another hit man to kill her off. And then the fun begins.

The female assassin is interesting and you can't help but root for her as the hit man and his idiot accomplices plan her demise. The title, Killing Time, fits well too as the passage of time is handled well. While the Assassin waits for her chance to kill her mark, she takes baths, learns English from an instructional tape...all the sort of things one might do to pass the time away.

An interesting movie where nobody is the good guy. Check it out, for an appealing heroine, realistic gunfighting, and some great catchphrases. Good stuff!
