Storyline

A former mob hitman, now in witness protection, is forced to come out of retirement when his family is threatened by his cohorts. He teams up with a skateboarding kid, who has a computer disk that the mob wants to get their hands on that has a list of new names for individuals in the FBI witness protection program. The list includes his dad, who separated from his mother years before and hadn't been seen since. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Hit or Miss for Eric Roberts
28 December 2009 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Muscular New Jersey hit-man Eric Roberts (as Tony Lazorka) gives up killing people for Los Angeles, the "Witness Protection Program," and a beautiful blonde family. Alas, supposedly 17-year-old computer hacker Esteban Powell (as Brian Segal) uncovers Mr. Roberts' secret, and sells it to vengeful mobster Damian Chapa (as Paolo Catania) and his pals. Very quickly, big guns come out.

The idea to team Roberts with the "punk kid" was a good one, but it doesn't work in this run; of the two, only Mr. Powell seems to be trying. Federal agent C. Thomas Howell (as Tom Holly) and pretty Farrah Forke (as Sarah) are also adrift. Mr. Chapa and "Godfather" Robert Miano (as Dominic) do well as the criminally-minded. Powell's touch of comedy almost saves the film.

*** Hit-man's Run (9/3/99) Mark L. Lester ~ Eric Roberts, Esteban Powell, Damian Chapa, C. Thomas Howell
