Easy Job
23 December 2014 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

If you get a lot of money, for something that is "easy" ... well you can imagine that there is more to it. And the viewer knows it and the ex-cop who's doing the job probably knows it too. But money buys a lot of things and let's people sleep well. The story itself is a slow-burner, especially at the beginning, but picks up the pace towards the end and gets really good there.

So the first half might be something you have to fight through, but there is some reward, even if you can't relate to the main character. The little girl is really good acting-wise and the story does pack a punch or two, which you might not expect like that.
