Storyline

Guy Normal (probably not his real name) is clumsy, has amnesia, and has fallen into the hands of an unscrupulous man who arranges killings for hire. The Arranger trains Guy to be a killer (and there's evidence that Guy perpetrated a mass murder in an Arizona post office), then sends him to do various jobs. Although Guy bumbles, the jobs get done. But Guy rebels against this life, tries to reconstruct his past, and falls in love with the Arranger's mistress (who also has no place else to go). When Guy becomes expendable, his days seem numbered. Can Guy outsmart the mastermind and the highly skilled assassins sent to kill him? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Not a bad little movie considering
3 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As low low budget action films go this was very enjoyable. I sat in bed late at night and happened along this film. Very well shot, very good action sequences. The poor director probably had very little money but made the best of it. Cheers to you independent filmmakers. Ben Gazarra plays the heavy in the organization that finds Danny Nucci, who they think is a hard psychotic killer. They want him on their side. Gazzara and Tiny Lister, capture, brainwash and train Nucci for their elite killing squad. It's sort of like a La Femme Nakita with a postman loser in the middle. The love interest is Hiep Thi Li, from Oliver Stones Heaven and Earth. Nucci has a soft spot in his heart for her, and she for him. Together they help Nucci find out who he really is, with the hopes of getting his real identity back. A fun little film within its means.
