not your average hit-man
20 October 2005 | by nobbytatoesSee all my reviews

Felix is a hit-man who wants out of the business. He takes up a job to look after an reclusive man; he been in a room for 33 years. Bubba is like a giant kid, he doesn't understand people and doesn't know much, never seeing the outside world before. But Felix has bigger problems. He wants to patch up his relationship with his ex-girlfriend, and he's being targeted by his old colleagues; their not letting him get away so easily.

Kiss Kiss (Bang Bang) is a good little dramatic comedy. The friendship between Felix and Bubba is very amusing and heart felt. What would have made this better if it had the hard hitting edge and malice dialog of great movies Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Sexy Beast. Instead of standing by itself, it takes it points from them and doesn't really crack any new ground. Though this does have some great laughs to bring; it shows the best way to sure smoking that is just hysterical. The acting was solid enough to keep you interested; it was interesting seeing Chris Penn play a different character than playing a 'tough guy' like he usually plays.

This isn't anything new, but its still good entertainment.
