WHISTLE (Duncan Jones, 2002) **1/2
19 February 2010 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

A short 30-minute film from the director of MOON (2009) found among the bonus material on the latter's Special Edition DVD from Sony; a bit slow to start as it depicts the dreary off-hours of an ultra-technological hit-man but the viewer's interest is elevated once he becomes 'involved' in the life of one of his victims. Again, hardly an original concept in itself, but what is interesting here is the fact that the hit-man's wife is not only fully cognizant of her hubby's day job but she is also the cold-blooded contact with his bosses when the conscience crisis sets in! I do not know if it was intentional or not but I found the preposterous nature of the killings – the hit-man uses a bulky contraption in his balcony to shoot his intended victims over great distances! – to be quite amusing (while also turning the film into borderline sci-fi territory).
