Predictable thick ear with clichés by the ton and plenty of obvious casting
8 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

Hey, I've got a good idea: let's make a hit-man movie just like all those other ones. We'll start with a scene of our world-weary, gravel-voiced, chain-smoking, smart-talking hero (who you will recognise from countless similar film and TV appearances) disposing of a sawn up body (actually a nice little scene), then we'll have him visit yet another chirpy cockney psychopath (except this actor can't do a cockney accent, but hey, he's stocky and bald and he's been in 3 other movies lately so he must be good.) Then we'll have our hero, (who's trying to turn his back on the mob!) meet a lovely, fresh-faced young girl in a very macho environment (irony). Of course, she's extremely intelligent, and doing a Phd, and is naturally attracted to a hit-man. Who isn't? Then let's introduce the next ham, (playing the central cop) by having him snorting coke from his desk in the office, at police HQ - wow! I hope these comments haven't depressed you too much. Unfortunately Solo depressed the hell out of me - and that was just the first 10 minutes.
