The hitman is told where and when to find his victim, but not who. No name, no picture or description, just an obscure clue. When he arrives at his destination, there are multiple possibilities for him to consider. If you can get past that premise, it is still a mediocre and predictable bore.
A movie without any outstanding incident and pretty predictable story. The narrative voice over was added to compensate lack of excitement.
Very very slow, Anthony Hopkins was the reason I sat through this movie - what on earth made him do this movie. Dreadfully boring -- to say the least.
The main actor narrating his own story gets old really fast with almost no dialogue in the first 15 minutes. Then it only gets worse. Poor over done acting and Mr. Hopkins makes a 5 min pointless speech to earn a paycheck, otherwise he has 20 lines in the whole film.You'll get really bored about an hour into it, and then fast forward until the end, which isn't that interesting, and you'll think to yourself what a waste of time and talent this film was.
How good is this movie...... 20 minutes in and I vacuumed the house while leaving it play.
I was looking forward to this because I am a huge fan of hitman movies. The trailer was promising, it had Sir Anthony Hopkins and Abbie Cornish; what else do you want? Boy oh boy, they have butchered this. The movie is so boring right from the beginning that you'll find yourself yawning throughout the movie. Endless, poorly written dialogues, half hearted performances. You'll predict the ending within the first thirty minutes. Very predictable. Stay away from this trash.
I've seen this formula a million times now:
1 x Idiotic, far-fetched plot no 8-year old kid would believe
1 x competent director
1 x competent editor
1 x star actor, preferably a Oscar winner
add a couple more B-listers and a "strong female" character
mix well, and voilá! There's your run-of-the-mill streaming service filler.This movie is such garbage that I seriously wonder if Anthony Hopkins was blackmailed into doing it. Either that or he is in dire need for cash, or maybe starting go get senile.
Ok, at first I got hooked by the trailer, which set me to expect something good out of this movie, and by Anthony Hopkins, who's (usually) a safe bet. And it was a mistake, I admit!All characters are pretty flat and shallow, dialogue is superficial and performance is disengaging (specially Abbie Cornish!), and sequence of event's does not make any sensePut all of that aside. Finishing the movie in retrospect I asked myself: WTF just happened??? The only answer my super ego dictated was that I wasted another 1:30 hrs of my life due to not responding to my gut feeling that it's a trap!I really wanted to like this movie, but I couldn't. 5 stars for cinematography and Hopkins performance, zero for everything else except Abbie Cornish's performance that is -2!If you find this review unhelpful (which is a sorta true) then imagine your disappointment when you watch this movie! Sorry.
This movie has a great premise. I love movies about hitmen, so, this was one I was really looking forward to see, specially, because of Sir Anthony Hopkins being on it...
Man, was I disappointed... The actors were bland, no emotion whatsoever... the movie dragged throughout the whole ordeal, the acting was a bit forced, sometimes... The only good things on this piece of cr*p was the effects on the first kill and the beautiful dog (I love dogs) and the lead acctress, that had a very nice face, not looking "fake" like many others... the movie itself, was boring, dull, and a real letdown...
Do yourself a favour, only put this cr*p on if you are having a very bad case of insomnia...
It wanders and there really is no real plot. Hopkins should have turned this one down. He must be really hurting for cash.
I adore Anson Mount. That said, I never want to see this movie again. The "noir" style was off-putting and the ending predictable. I was hoping for a leading man role that would allow Anson to shine. This was not it.
