Storyline

In Spokane, an elite government killer goes rogue on the day that engineer Allen Campbell loses a promotion and finds his best man with his wife. Allen goes drinking that night and chats up a stranger who turns out to be Jonas, the hit man. Jonas asks Allen to give him a list of five people he'd like to see dead, so a drunk Allen lists his boss, the guy who got the promotion, a nasty bookie, the best man, and his wife. By the next morning, the boss is dead, and Allen realizes Jonas is for real. Can he stop Jonas? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Detective Neil McKay: Now what the fuck is going on here, Campbell? You got ties to two of these vics and possibly a third. I got one dead cop and you at the scene waving a gun.
Allan Campbell: Look, I tried to tell you...
Detective Neil McKay: No, you told me a joke. Two guys walk into a bar. Fucking hilarious.

Be careful what you wish for!
18 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I do not understand how people can downgrade this movie so badly, the acting is great, the story is excellent, one of the best I've seen in the past 12months and the movie itself is also way better than the most movies coming around on a daily basis. Sadly its not a high budget movie, so the common public would become aware of it, but downgrading something like that is pretty sad. If that is a 2 or 3, then the grading rates should go in the future down to minus 10 at least, because there are a lot of worse movies out there!

Its the same with another Cuba Gooding movie, Sacrifice, its also way better than the reviews show, but thats is a different subject. Maybe he is not so liked anymore...:-)

To me The Hit List is a good 7-8...not a 10 (except the story itself), but in regards of the downgrading, I upgrade it a bit. The story of the movie is simple, be careful what you wish for, even when you are drunk...because sometimes wishes come true!

More I do not want to spoil. Conclusion: absolutely worth the time watching and money as well...!

(I do not write many reviews here, only when I see that a movie is so badly discredited like this one!)
