Storyline

In the Philadelphia police department, Emmett Young is a hotshot, a workaholic newly promoted to homicide. He learns he has a disease that will soon kill him painfully, so he hires a stranger to arrange his own death. With one eye on the calendar (he's allowed a few days' grace before his murder), he pursues a final case, the serial killing of young women. Emmett develops a profile of the assailant. Meanwhile, his fixer hires an ex-cop to kill Emmett, a lonely security guard whom the fixer taunts and belittles. In this limited time, can Emmett sort out what's important?

Goofs

About 22 minutes in, Emmett is reading a report when he gets a nosebleed. He is reading 'tears on vaginal tissue caused by forced object' a drop of blood clearly falls on the 'obj' of object. In the next shot it has magically moved to just above the 'd' and 'ob' of 'forced object'. See more »

Pretty Good!
13 May 2010 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

AKA: Emmett's Mark, this was sent straight-to-video for no reason. It's pretty good.

Scott Wolf plays the title character who is diagnosed with a terminal illness. Young meets a stranger (Byrne) who can a hire a hit-man (Tim Roth) to kill him. Young accepts the offer at first, but he changes his mind at the last minute and now has to stop his own death.

The best part of the movie is the performance by Roth. He could just phone in his role, but he puts in an extra layer of character development that makes you like him. Byrne and Wolf also put in fine performances. There's also a really well-shot foot chase and while there's no reason for it, it was welcomed. If you're looking for something different, "Killing Emmett Young" is a decent choice.
