The Job (2003)
1.5 out of 10
I have been deceived. I haven't seen a ton of Daryl Hannah's work, but I've really liked what I have seen. My favorite movie that included her as an actor was Kill Bill. When I saw another movie featuring her as an assassin sitting on the shelf at Blockbuster, I rented it. I didn't think the summary on the back of the DVD case painted a good picture of the film. It had sounded interesting. But it was not. The story line started to get lost in Daryl Hannah's character, CJ, being a negative, often heavily intoxicated woman, going to bars and trying to get cheap sex, then cutting back to the young couple with the stolen drugs she's pursuing, with flashbacks of her life as a young child with a seemingly young unmarried hooker mother, and back to CJ dealing with an unplanned pregnancy, trying to abort the child, nausea and an ex-priest trying to help her.
While watching this excuse for a movie, at the scene after CJ gives the pregnant female half of the drug couple, Emily, some requested toilet paper in a public bathroom and deciding not to shoot her, when she has the emotional breakdown and goes to give herself an abortion, the person I was watching this with was apparently fearful of how this scene would pan out, as I was asked to stop the movie.
Now I normally love movies and will say everything positive of it I can think of, but other than Hannah doing a good job with a badly written character, I cannot find anything to compliment about this one. I don't mean to insult the creators or anyone involved in the movie, but, whether it was or not, it appeared slapped together. I only gave it a 1.5 as opposed to 1.0 because I didn't fully understand it, or finish it, and so didn't feel it fair of myself to give it that low a rating considering I didn't give it a full chance.
