Storyline

ASHBY is a coming of age/approaching death comedy drama. A seventeen-year-old kid (Ed) trying to understand who he wants to be in the world, befriends a terminally ill ex-CIA contract killer (Ashby) who is trying to make peace with his life and God before he goes. 'Making peace' might just entail killing three old bosses who have tricked him into breaching his strange moral code.

Goofs

The MRI machine in Eloise's home would have pulled the bicycle and other nearby ferromagnetic metal items towards it's extremely powerful magnet in a dangerous fashion at the moment it was turned on. Even non-ferromagnetic metals can interact with an MRI ( such as her earrings) in such a way that the MRI image produced would likely be distorted. See more »

Different & Good
14 January 2016 | by (mexico) – See all my reviews

I liked it, I consider it a good movie. It's different than other movies and at the end of the movie I felt I had received a good message. I think the story is good without clichés and everybody performance was focused. It was good to see beautiful Emma Roberts and also Mickey Rourke.

I like since the beginning it made me laugh with a the bj scene, and also I think it was really good it didn't take the way of typical movies, there were like 5 different scenarios in which the movies could take direction but it didn't, that helped to make this movie a good and different movie without the typical options, I consider that it has more realism than other movies.

Thanks
