Could have had cult potential if anybody had seen it .....
30 December 2015 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

This ultra rare comedy is practically unknown, yet deserves credit for being better than you might expect. The script is quite interesting, as rent-a-cop Mike McDonald evolves into a very creative hit-man, working for the wonderful Joe Silver as a contract assassin. The film morphs back and forth between dark comedy and slapstick which leads to a rather uneven delivery. There are a number of hilarious situations as McDonald falls for his Psychiatrist, who's Father turns out to be Mafia, and Joe Silver's main competition in contract killing. Rescuing a dog from a burning dog house is one highlight, but there many comedic situations, not all of which work. That is the nature of this rather hectic movie. Overall, definitely above average, and worth seeking out if you can find it. - MERK
