Screenwriter Ron Lazzeretti was also supposed to direct the film. But at the last minute, Lazzaretti suffered a ruptured appendix, and Michael Keaton offered to direct instead, rather then watch the film get cancelled. Keaton had long expressed an interest in directing, and this film seemed to be the perfect opportunity. See more »

Enjoyable film noire, with twists and turns to keep one guessing.
I really enjoyed this movie for a couple of reasons. Michael Keaton played a really good hit man, and the movie style I thought was a throwback to the 1950's era movies that were crime related. The movie had that very dark and moody style, with a great edge to the movie style. It keeps you anticipating what is going to happen next.
The movie also had a plot with the damsel in distress running away from her abusive relationship. You just knew her ex-lover was going to cross paths with her again at some point. I also thought Michael Keaton did an admirable job of directing himself in the movie, and providing his cast with opportunities to share the stage with him and also have a good performance. Bobby Cannavale played the frustrated and sometimes violent ex-lover, with a troubled soul. On the down side, the movie was a bit slow during certain parts, but the ending was better than I actually expected and was a nice surprise. This movie is well worth a watch and I would recommend seeing it.
