When the girls shoot their guns with their eyes closed, Violet's gun also empties with the slide back, but in the next shot she fires once more, and then again the gun has the slide in the empty position. See more »

I did like this but it's not a typical assassin movie. Don't go in expecting a shoot-em up action fest. I say B.
"I know we gotta off him 'cause that's what we gotta do, but I don't want to do it until I know why he wants us to do it." Violet (Bledel) and Daisy (Ronan) are young girls who are best friends and assassins. When they see dresses they want they decide to take one more job in order to be able to pay for them. What is supposed to be a quick one shot one kill job becomes complicated when they start to talk to their mark. They start to become involved in his life and that changes their feelings about what they are supposed to do. There are some movie I watch based on the subject. Some I watch based off the cast. Then there are movies I watch because of one person. I have been a huge James Gandolfini since the first episode of The Sopranos. The movie on its own is pretty good and I did like it, but it's not a typical assassin movie. Do not go in expecting a shoot-em up action fest. This deals with more of a conversation between the three about why killing is the right thing to do. The assassins don't want to and the mark wants them to. Different but I liked it. Overall, not a typical assassin movie but worth seeing, especially for Gandolfini. I give it a B.
