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.

Three Days Two Friends One Target
Did You Know?
The movie is a homage to '60s British cinema, particularly Michael Caine
movies of that period. The lead character of the assassin calls himself "Matthew Palmer", after Harry Palmer of The Ipcress File
(1965), and his band is called "The Ipcress Files". The lead assassin who confronts Palmer at the film's climax is called "Mr Carter", in reference to Get Carter
(1971). And in the interview bar scene between Palmer and Lance, a painting of Michael Caine is seen in the background. See more
