Very Off-Beat Action Comedy
19 October 2004 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

This movie is not what I expected. I thought it was going to be funnier than it was, still I found its wildly off kilter nature refreshing.

The plot has a band of assassins hired to kill a police chief. Once the hit goes down, badly, the group of killer find themselves hunted by the men who hired them. There's infinitely more to whats going on, I haven't touched on the killers, their baggage and the numerous complications that arise.

To call this film off-beat is an understatement. Nothing goes in a conventional way and what starts off as quite funny becomes quite grim by the end. Its far from the best film ever made but there is something about its quirky (god I hate that word) nature that makes it worth seeing. I think that the raves by some critics are do more to the uniqueness of the film rather than to its actual quality.

I give it an 8 out of 10, with a point or two coming from the off-beat nature of the film. I would recommend it. I can't say you'll love it but it will keep you watching to the end.
