Storyline

Take a walk on the dark side with hired gun John Hardin. When Hardin's boss, powerful mobster Jack Rushton puts a contract out on his scheming and sexy wife Rena, Hardin confronts an assassin's worst fear-having to kill his own lover. Rena is counting on having Hardin kill her twin sister instead, but she didn't count on Hardin having a conscience. And when he refuses to murder an innocent woman, he finds himself trapped between lust and loyalty in a deadly game of blackmail, betrayal and brutality. Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

definitely worth watching
28 March 2001 | by amazme3See all my reviews

I read the comments before seeing this flick, but I disagree. This film is effective in its combination of a reasonable plot, worthy acting, a good cast, and violent as well as soft segments. The two roles played by Jennifer Tilly were believable. Michael Madsen did a great job as the thoughtful tough guy. Also, the theme of loyalty or lack thereof gave the film more meaning.
