Storyline

The nature of temptation. Banks is a hit man, the best, usually working for Latin American drug cartels. He picks up solitary women, uses them briefly for a job, then kills them. He's in the Southwest, headed toward Mexico, when he picks up Bennie, a woman leaving an abusive marriage, going to Paradise, Arizona. The film follows three tracks: Banks's slow recruitment of Bennie, the set-up for the hit at a swank resort in Mexico, and the FBI's close pursuit of Banks, whom they want alive in hopes he'll rat out his bosses. Bennie may not be who she seems, and there may be a chink in Banks's tough-guy armor. Guns, money, and a chance at Paradise... Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Great movie!!!
1 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was exceptionally good. It's one that you watch, say, hmmm that was pretty good. Then a month later you're trying to figure out why you only rented it because you realize it was a really good movie, definitely even worth seeing again. Rent: Recommended. Buy... you're going to, just give it time. The action is entertaining, the twists are very entertaining, and you really learn to root for kiefer sutherland's character, so at the end you're going to say "oh hell yes!!" just watch it! i was already a kiefer sutherland fan from the lost boys, and this only helped in me liking his acting, very top-notch in this movie. Why haven't you rented it yet?!!!!
