Hitwoman With A Heart
27 August 2004 | by (brooklyn NY) – See all my reviews

****SPOILERS**** Slow moving crime/drama with Daryl Hannah as CJ March looking more like a homeless bag-lady then a professional mob hit-woman who's on the hunt for a stash of 4 kilos of dope that her victim at the beginning of the movie had switched before she could get it back to her boss the flowery Vernon,Alex Rocco.

The switcher Roger, Shawn Woods, is later killed by that sweet and fun-loving couple Tony & Emily, Brad Renfor & Dominque Swain who he tried to sell the dope to. CJ March is on their tail but when she's about to knock them off she hesitates when she sees that Emily is very pregnant. This brings out CJ's maternal instincts as well as her also being knocked up by someone that she picked up at one of the sleazy bars that she patronized.

One night at a bar CJ meets Rick, Eric Mablus, an ex-priest whom she rebuffs. Rick turned out to be the person in the end of the movie who turned her life around by showing CJ the light and the good things in life. During the film we also see CJ in flashback as a seven year-old girl and we get an insight to why she turned out the way she did. But the movie is so disjointed that you at one point lose perspective to whats going on well before "The Job" is over.

Tony & Emily are tracked down by CJ who can't bring herself to rub them out which almost cost CJ her life. Gloomy and depressing movie with Eric Mablus as the only real light in the film as the ex-priest Rick with the heart of gold who wanted to save CJ's soul but not to cohabit with her body as CJ at first thought.

The one thing about "The Job" that really struck a note was how dangerous and difficult it was for both Tony & Emily to sell the ripped-off drugs to local drug dealers who wouldn't touch their stuff with a ten-foot pole. The stash was just too hot leaving the two sitting on something like $500,000.00 of drugs and not being able to do anything with it.

The ending of the film tried to be up-lifting but was so contrived that it came across as phony and insincere. In light of what happened in the movie up to then.
