the hit-man isn't the only lame thing here
26 February 2006 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I haven't read the book this is based on, or any others by this author, so came with little expectations apart from the fact that it stars James Nesbitt. Nesbitt delivers as usual and is as charming and amusing as the lame writing allows him to be, although certainly not as charming as he or the scriptwriters think he is.

There are plenty of plot holes and references to events that must have wound up on the cutting room floor, with the effect that all in all it felt fairly anaemic.

Reading the comments of others though, I am now curious to read the novels, which sound like they are far better than this formulaic excursion into TV-land.
