Storyline

A master assassin who specializes in shooting his victims twice in the head, a "double tap", may not be everything he initially seems to be. An undercover officer ends up teaming up with him after she is not killed in one of his hits on a drug lord and after she determines he is an ex-officer out to kill only those who stand outside the law and are deserving of being murdered. Her investigations lead to dirty officers and uncertainty about whom she can trust. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Stephen Rea saved it...
12 August 2002 | by PracticalMagicSee all my reviews

One thing saved this film.. Stephen Rea's acting job. I have never seen a personallity archetype in a hollywood film, that comes close; which really made his character interesting to watch. Heather Locklear is hot... That is the only thing she has going for her. Personally she should stick to the Money Talks type roles, as she did not carry this film well. Peter Greene once again played Peter Greene, as he has done for every movie since The Mask. So, I cannot say much about him. It was fun to watch I suppose... But reiterating, the Stephen Rea performance really saved it.

Would I watch this film again? Yes.
