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>

Nothing more than a timewaster
16 February 2001 | by (Wrexham, North Wales) – See all my reviews

Despite the fact that this film was obviously a cheap production, I had heard that it was somewhat of a little gem, sadly it wasn't. It plodded along with no depth to a poor storyline of little interest. The characters were shallow and the film pathetically predictable, that was if you could be bothered to watch it to the end. It is the type of film that has no real point, and what point it does have will interest you about as much as watching paint dry. This production is exactly what it looks like - cheap and nasty. "Shark in a Bottle" is a kind of "Gross Point Blank" without the story, humour, interest and the good performances - Avoid
