Not bad, but...
16 August 2003 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

A weak attempt at the Lock Stock & 2 Smoking Guns genre, this film contains incoherent scenes where the director tries too hard to put his mark on the screen. You're watching a gangster film one moment, then all of a sudden, you see the characters in claymation acting out the next scene. You see a murder, then every time the murder is mentioned later, you have to see it again via flashback..as if the director thought we'd forget the murder that happened 4 minutes ago? The plot lacks too. One of those frustrating plots where a professional business-like hitman has a retard, loud-mouth protege/buddy who screws every hit up. Instead of whacking the "buddy" for screwing up (which would happen in real life), the hitman gives him chance after chance. Terribly unrealistic. Boring scenes that add nothing to the plot include some dude who raises chickens in his penthouse (why was the hitman even there? To kill him, buy guns, or what??) and a producer who wants to make the hitman's life into a tv show. Great casting and acting though. I didn't even recognize the Karate Kid and barely recognized Blondie. Mike Tyson's 1st wife and the dude who played Brett in Pulp Fiction were great.
