Trivia

Goofs

The shot made from the tower in the manner shown (standing freehand) would be impossible for even a skilled shooter. A shot of that distance would require the use of a rest. Additionally, a follow up shot would not take place as quickly as shown. See more »

Vice gets real
26 October 2016 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

Action scenes and character drama; 'The Hit List' has both, and it's a great ride from start to finish. The fact that Calderone's making his big return isn't a spoiler, but nevertheless, this first part's focus on Crockett keeps the larger story shrouded in secret. Sonny's the target of an assassin, while at the same time dealing with his own crumbling marriage. This sets the stage for the show's penchant for putting Crockett under the microscope and watching him squirm.

It's a twisty, bullet-ridden episode throughout, and it saves its main bad guy for the back half. That, together with a classic freeze frame make for a great cliffhanger ending.

8/10
