Jake (Jack Prinya) is a professional hit-man. Bored with life, he spends the spare time that he has between hits hanging out with various girls and loser friends. His life is turned upside down when he finds out too late that his current "assignment" is his own father. A gritty nihilistic look at modern-day amoral materialistic city living. Written by
Lamond Jr., John
I was hoping to see some good Asian movie-making in this title, but there was none evident here. The story is about a young contract killer who does three things in his life mainly: kill people for money, have sex with almost every random woman he encounters, and meet various people for no apparent reason (his mother, his father, a drug dealer). There is almost no action in this movie and the plot advances very slowly and tediously, if one can admit of the existence of a plot in this case. The sound effects, especially these of the guns, are laughable. The dialog is delivered with a chilling indifference and at some point I started wondering if this was not a high-school project rather than a full-length movie. By all means do miss this movie, if you do not want to completely waste an hour and a half of your time. If you are in the mood for some high quality Asian action cinema, go watch The City of Violence.
