Victor Maynard is a middle-aged, solitary assassin, who lives to please his formidable mother, despite his own peerless reputation for lethal efficiency. His professional routine is interrupted when he finds himself drawn to one of his intended victims, Rose. He spares her life, unexpectedly acquiring in the process a young apprentice, Tony. Believing Victor to be a private detective, his two new companions tag along, while he attempts to thwart the murderous attentions of his unhappy client. Written by

Victor's mother says she has "taken up knitting" and shows what appears to be the beginning of a onesie for a baby. The object knitted is more of a silhouette than a three-dimensional object. When sewing, silhouettes are often cut out and sewn together. However, with knitting, where one creates the cloth as one goes, it's easier to create the three-dimensional object in situ. This is certainly the case with the legging section of the onesie (leggings being, essentially, long socks, which are simple to make in three dimensions). While it's not impossible to make two silhouettes and seam them at the sides, it seems counterproductive. See more »

Well, in contrast to the first review, i felt that this was a hilariously funny attribute to the British film industry. With continuous amusing modern slap stick humour throughout.
I had been looking forward to the release of this film for a while, and it was far better than i had ever expected. The cinema was packed and everyone was laughing throughout the entire film, which in my experience is very rare.
There is an incredible cast containing many well known British actors/ actresses, overall a must see film.
Looking forward to the DVD release. Thank you. x
