The taut, suspenseful - and sometimes darkly comic - story of Matthew Palmer; underworld assassin and Michael Caine fan. Floating in and out of each slaying, Palmer is quick, efficient...observer and executioner only. He has just two jobs to complete before he retires, then reward and rest with Kerry, his girlfriend. Unfortunately for Palmer, both jobs dredge up past personal follies, exposing his previously traitor- ous acts against his employers, putting him on the run, pitting him against victim and fellow assassin alike, driving all involved with him toward a bloody climax.

The cigarette-lighting cameo appearance of John Bardon
was entirely improvised and unplanned. Not enough extras had arrived for the bar scenes, and Assistant Director Allegra Monico
was sent out onto the streets outside the location to scout for willing volunteers to be extras. She spotted John Bardon walking past, recognized him, and asked him if he'd like to appear in the scene. His appearance consequently helped introduce the "dodgy cigarette-lighter" gag. See more
No, I didn't say he was a hit man, I said he was an assassin. There is a difference, you know. A hit man kills people, anyone, for a price. An assassin murders important figures, politicians, monarchs.
