The film's history traces back to when the project was originally at Miramax under Disney's banner around 1995, when the Weinsteins were running that division. This is one of several projects that they took with them when they sold their stake of Miramax to Disney outright in 2005 and then announced a distribution deal with MGM soon after that this film was among those such as Lucky Number Slevin (2006), Clerks II (2006) and 1408 (2007) to name a few.

I absolutely love this move. Watch it every time I get the chance. Mickey Rourke plays his role to a tee and we see from this movie that he is back in full effect! Joseph Gordon Lovett is equally excellent as the charismatic psychopath whom Bird takes under his wing because he reminds him of his dead brother. This movie can be really touching at times as we watch Bird go through his mixed feelings about what he should do as an aging hit-man who wants to be done with his murderous ways while still pulling off one of the meanest SOB's you would even NOT want to meet. Mickey Rourke was the best actor by far as his role was so complex at times. Dianne Lane also does a wonderful job and there are other notable appearances.Don't expect something new as its the familiar premise of a hit-man on his one last job, but this one is very stylish, has great performances and is all and all a great flick.
9 out of 10 stars!
