Storyline

In Spokane, an elite government killer goes rogue on the day that engineer Allen Campbell loses a promotion and finds his best man with his wife. Allen goes drinking that night and chats up a stranger who turns out to be Jonas, the hit man. Jonas asks Allen to give him a list of five people he'd like to see dead, so a drunk Allen lists his boss, the guy who got the promotion, a nasty bookie, the best man, and his wife. By the next morning, the boss is dead, and Allen realizes Jonas is for real. Can he stop Jonas? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Jonas Arbor: God doesn't discriminate. I guess he made me in his own image. Life's a fluke, Allan. A flash in the pan, and then it's over. A trigger is like a fast forward button. I just skip to the end credits on other people's lives. Or not. The choice is mine to make.

Not so good...
11 May 2011 | by lhannagsSee all my reviews

I always respect Cuba Jr, even in this lousy movie he gave everything that he could. The story is good, but honestly? The movie is bad. The makeup, the action scenes, the camera movement, but.. but the worse part is the interpretation of some actors, and the winner in this context is Cole Hauser. He is not in the movie sometimes, really not convincing, you can feel and see insecurity, some looks he gives, body movement. I have to say some lines are corny, and some events too much cliché. In the end, there are better Cuba Gooding Jr movies to watch. I remember other movie somehow like this, Collateral with Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx.
