Lance's playground
17 May 2006 | by CarsonTrentSee all my reviews

No, I don't agree with all those who said it's crap. It's not that far fetched or exaggerated(for that see Mission Impossible),it's low budget but that's no guarantee for quality(look at Mission Impossible again), the characters are not excessively smart or dumb, or insufficiently developed-it's ordinary on that level, too. Somehow it doesn't work properly but also doesn't fall flat. I would point the accusing finger at the director and writers for the average result. So why write a review? Because it's the perfect part for Lance Henriksen, it fits him like a glove and is one of his best performance ever. He is this neurotic contract killer with a relationship problem who steals every scene he's in. I couldn't pretend he's much different than in Johnny Handsome(he's clearly a niche actor and not wide range), but he's given much more room to develop in this one-and he really dwells in the part.
