Quotes

Frank Ryan: [addressing his all-female team] Murder, blood and paranoia are gonna make fine company where you're going. 'Cos ladies, you're going to Hell! My job, and I hate it, is to train you as a team. You gotta look good, move well and kill quick. You're a bunch of amateurs with a few special skills. And I hope to God that when the time comes and I need those skills, you don't let me down. If you do, you won't be coming back. I'm your life insurance.

Escaped from that island known as prison...
10 June 2006 | by sethn172See all my reviews

...with a little help from his "friends," of course!

"Hired to Kill" is about a prisoner who, after he gets out of jail "free" (LOL another Monopoly joke here!), he hires a bunch of really beautiful women who, well, help the poor rotting man do bad things! Now this is excitement! No, I would never live life like this! But, what I am saying is, this movie is exciting because of the plot, the action, the babes...what else could you possibly want in a manly movie?

I say, "Hired to Kill" is such an excellent "escape from prison" type of movie. It may not be like "The Rock," but it's still that good! I give this film ten stars for the action, the adventure, the suspense, the girls, and anything else that this movie offers! Have some fun with "Hired to Kill" tonight!
