The Face of the Serpent is an action-thriller with strong political undertones of local government corruption. The film focuses on a morally conscious assassin called Quinn. His next target is a Russian immigrant named Tasha, whom Quinn is misled into believing is a drug courier. During Quinn's surveillance of Tasha, planning for the perfect moment to make his kill, he becomes infatuated with her beauty and pure innocence. Ultimately, Quinn rescues Tasha from the hands of another assassin and takes her into his protection. The two join forces to find out who wants her dead and why. In the process, Quinn discovers secrets from his past and battles with the inner demons that made him the man he is today. Written by Anonymous

Dust bin dwellers: Bad D.V.D. rental night.
3 February 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Hitmans Code (2003) is a terrible "movie". Like I have said in the past, I have nothing against low budget movies. Most of the movies that I like are of the low to no budget variety. But if you're going to make a movie at least have some decent writing and some actors who have the slightest bit of stage presence and charisma. There's nothing worse than a movie that tries to hard. Especially ones that try to hard but have nothing to even flaunt.

The movie is about a balding hit-man who tries to look cool. His new assignment is to follow some woman with beefy forearms but thin upper arms. As he follows her around town, he's learns a lot about his funny looking woman. She's not at all what she seems to be. What has this guy (and the audience) gotten in to?

Just a terrible movie. Nothing thrilling or exciting to mention. It sucked. I don't even want to know why they even made this movie. There's nothing worse than a bad neo-noir film. Especially one filled with lousy acting, boring set pieces and plain looking women. This movie is masquerading under a nonsensical title Hitmans Code. I never found out or understood what the "code" was about.

Avoid like the plague.
