Quotes

Felix: D' you know what this is? It's a bullet. It's got a brass case. Copper jacket. Lead core. 'n it's very hard. When I put it in my gun and pull the trigger... it travels at 500 miles an hour. What do you think would happen... if one of these hit you? What would happen to you, Robert? This bullet wouldn't stop. You understand. It wouldn't stop - here. It wouldn't stop once it was inside you. It would *rip* through your skin. It would tear through your: fat, flesh, sinews, muscle. Cut into, into, ...

Weird Dramatic Black Comedy
12 December 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In England, Felix (Stellan Skarsgard) is a hit-man who wants to retire after collecting the last words of his victims along many years of "hard work". He has just finished the training of Jimmy (Paul Bettany), but the weird leader of his crime organization does not want Felix to leave the "club" and orders the other killers to eliminate him. Meanwhile, Felix needs some cash and accepts a job of "babysitter" of Bubba (Chris Penn), a grown-up man raised like a child, who lives locked in a room, protected from the outside world by his father. Bubba moves to Felix's place and meets Sherry (Jacqueline Mckenzie), the girlfriend of Felix, and then he is introduced to the real world, drinking straight whiskey, meeting women and going to night-clubs. Meanwhile, the gang of assassins is trying to kill Felix. "Kiss Kiss (Bang Bang)" is a weird dramatic black comedy, using elements the "Rain Man" and some Quentin Tarantino movies, with bizarre characters. The whole cast has a great performance, I like black humor, but I did not like this story. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Um Beijo... Um Tiro." ("A Kiss... A Shot.")
