I liked this movie very much. The actors are good, especially Wolf and Roth. The script is original and avoids the pitfalls of cliché and stays logical. This is the first time I really liked Scott Wolf in a role. He plays Emmet as a young and intelligent but obsessive cop. I liked the fact that the director really took his time to let us in the life of the hit-man (Roth). It made the final showdown so much more powerful.
Though the film probably had a fraction of the budget most blockbusters have, this doesn't show in the film. The sounds and visuals are very well done. I highly recommend it
