Storyline

Mikey and Rose are professional assassins. They are also lovers, and once upon a time Rose also knew Mikey's father. During an elaborate hit job for a malicious gangster, Rose fails to kill the main target, the gangster's pregnant girlfriend. Instead, she delivers her baby and convinces Mikey to help her protect them both. As Rose weakens from cancer, Mikey becomes breadwinner for this unusual family. But tranquility will not last.

really, really dull, so very very dull.
12 August 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This has to be one of the worst films I have ever seen that has genuine actors in it.Its not even so bad its laughable its just so bad, period.There are so many more movies to see before renting this god awful film. What were Helen Mirren and Cuba Gooding Jnr. thinking when they agreed to do this ? Must looked OK in script form.

Rent any of these before renting this.....Tomb Raider2,Biker Boyz,anything with Whoopi Goldberg (that includes A Knight in Camelot but maybe not Sister Act II)

Off now to watch Jaws 3, Dennis Quaid never made a bad movie ? Did he ??? Where's my copy of Zardoz.
