Storyline

Charlie Valentine (Raymond J. Barry), notorious crime boss/mobster, attempts to pull one last heist before slipping into "retirement". When the heist goes sour, however, he's forced to go on the run. Seeking help from his estranged son, Danny (Michael Weatherly), Valentine finds himself teaching his son the tricks of the trade. After an attempted scam on Danny's boss, and with a mobster on his tail, Valentine must decide whether or not he has enough goodness in himself to save his only son...a son who might die thanks to Valentine's mistakes.

Quality doesn't need cost
9 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

Studios spend tens of millions of dollars to distract us with explosions, effects, and big names. The Hit men Diaries doesn't have that. What it does have is strong writing, great cinematography, powerful acting, and some names from actions films of the 90's. Raymond Barry does a great job as the lead, playing a ready to retire gangster.

I saw this film at AOF and everyone was at the edge of their seat at the gritty dialog. A well evolved film that shows us, a good script and good acting, makes for a good film. The story drew in the audience. The duality of the character intrigued. The director did a great job retelling a classic style heist film. All the pieces came together for this.
