Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
This is a great movie of meek lawyer turned bad ass assassin. Yuki is convinced that the Law is flawless, until she sees the corruption surrounding her. When some gangsters come to take her out for going to blow the whistle on the corruption she is saved by a mysterious assassin. She then realizes that the justice from the gun was more powerful then any court or lawyer could ever be. She seeks out her hero to learn how to become an assassin like him.
Rei Kikukawa does a great job of turning the character the 180 degrees from meek to fearless. The story is very easy to follow and the action is fulfilling. Acting is pretty good, kept off the cheese except for Yuki's goof ball friend, and even in the end he is a bad ass. while the story does move at a quick pace, you can pinpoint the change in Rei's character Yuki when she goes from the suits to the leather.
I would recommend this movie for someone who likes a quick paced action flick with some substance.
