Storyline

ASHBY is a coming of age/approaching death comedy drama. A seventeen-year-old kid (Ed) trying to understand who he wants to be in the world, befriends a terminally ill ex-CIA contract killer (Ashby) who is trying to make peace with his life and God before he goes. 'Making peace' might just entail killing three old bosses who have tricked him into breaching his strange moral code.

This Movie Packs a Punch...!
5 October 2015 | by sgmathsSee all my reviews

This movie is not for the faint hearted, it touches on issues that many people refuse to accept.

An old school movie directed & made for people who are intellectually minded. If you are a dullard don't waste your time or money, this Movie is not for you. This applies to all Reality TV imbeciles.

This movie deserves more recognition, acknowledgements & awards...!

Mickey Rourke is down to earth and delivers a message that Packs a Punch...!

Plenty of American Gridiron Balls in this Movie...!

I can't wait for the DVD...!

Evil prevails when good men do Nothing...!
