You have got to be kidding me
29 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

Absolutely uneventful. The acting was downright awful and I honestly have to blame a lot of that on the screen writing. The story was laughable and the people who created this movie managed to take a couple of halfway decent actors (well, maybe Morgan Freeman anyway) and make quite a joke out of the kill-for-hire 'business'. I almost managed to make it to the end, but winded up having to skip a couple of chapters because I felt as if I was on a nature hike right along with the whole cast. Seriously boring, uneventful and *definitely* unimaginative. I'd skip this one unless you're just a die hard Freeman/Cusack fan.
