Storyline

John Hunter takes a job as a hit man for a Mob syndicate, but his attacks of conscience, his odd dialogue about doing this for his family (he lives alone), and his continuous returning to a woman from his past suggest that there's more to him than meets the eye. Herod, the hard-nosed boss of the killing team, alternately fascinates and repels John. One night, Herod asks him to accompany Gillian, Herod's younger sister, for an evening out. The next day, John gets the word to kill her. When he refuses and instead tries to run with her and a considerable amount of Herod's assets, the stage is set for a showdown and the revelation of who's who. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Put it down.
12 June 2001 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

this movie was about as flat as an opened 2 liter bottle of, um, nuka-cola. i mean, i didn't expect much going in and i was unpleasantly unsurprised. the characters in the movie weren't too endearing and a lot of the dialog (all 6 or so lines of it) sounded pretty forced. the main character seemed to have this big hamlet thing going on throughout the movie and i totally didn't buy into it. also, you know how plot twists are supposed to make you think "wow, i totally didn't expect that!" and be shocked? well, in this movie when that stuff happened i just shook my head--most of the time they didn't have any diegetic justification for their plot twists--and rolled my eyes.
