Low budget but some quirky fun...
8 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm sure that Joe Casey wishes that he had a higher budget when he set out to make this movie. Its biggest stumbling block is its budget. There is more talking than action. (and it gets categorized as Action) However, there are some good things here worth noting: mainly some talent (obviously without the cash to do the script justice).

It's a hit man story. Jerome Archer (Jonathan Browning) is out of jail and now two Census Bureau agents (Scott Brick and Mariah Robinson) are trying to get him to kill Speed Razor ( Nicholas Lanier) who is a hyperactive young hit man who Jerome perceives as being terrible at his job. The agents being from the Census Bureau adds a nice bit of absurdism to the tale.

The actors range in ability. Jonathan Browning is decent as the ex-hit man. His scenes with Nicholas Lanier were my favorite parts of the movie. Lanier adds a lot of energy to the production. Scott Brick is great as the not-so-smart Census Bureau agent. Mariah Robinson as the angry lesbian agent holds her own against him.

My favorite of the cast, however, was Leslie McManus as Agent X. Really solid acting. I don't know who she is but I'm glad she was there.

To reemphasize: this is a low budget film. But compared to the plethora of amazingly bad low budgets out there, Hit Parade has some saving graces that elevate it.
