Storyline

American pharmaceutical executive Walter Richmond takes a business trip to Amsterdam, accompanied by his wife Cathryn and their 10-year-old daughter Melissa, who has been mute ever since an accident some time ago. To communicate, Melissa uses a small magic marker board that she wears around her neck. Melissa makes a trip to the ladies' room at the hotel De L'Europe and gets separated from her parents. Melissa wanders out of the hotel and onto the street, where she witnesses the murder of Simon Van Der Molen, the attorney representing Walter's Dutch client. Unfortunately, Melissa is spotted by the killers, who are hit man Bruno Decker and his employer Rudolph Hartman, who turns out to be Walter's client. Hartman had Van Der Molen killed to prevent Van Der Molen from revealing the side effects of Hartman's new medication, which he's marketing to Walter's firm. If Van Der Molen would have told Walter about the side effects, Walter would have declined the medication, and Hartman would ... Written by Todd Baldridge

Started well, but it decomposed!
26 June 2000 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

This movie begins like a comedy. Many occurrences in this movie make you believe this is a comedy. And for a while, it is.

But in the second half, the movie turns gory. Nothing more than an average action film where the killer murders anyone in his path. The comedy aspect is lost.

And as bad as this is, the girl evolves into an action hero similar to Rambo. And her father does the same.

Bottom line: this movie would have been good if it had known where to go. Comedy, action, suspense? What's this? It seems to be suffering from "The Big Hit" syndrome. It just doesn't know what genre it is aiming at.
