The Hit List
Who's on your list?
A disgruntled man creates a hit list with a stranger during a drunken night out and must then race to try to save those he marked for extermination as the bodies begin to pile up and all fingers point to him.
Viskipäissään tehty tappolista oli hauska idea, mut hymy hyytyy huumorintajuttoman palkkatappajan ottaessa sen tosissaan.
The movie is very cheap visually. The plot and direction was quite good as well as Cuba Gooding Jr. performance but cheap looks ruined the movie to some extent which is a shame and waste of talent. The last 15 minutes were horrible.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Drama, Moral Dilemma, Crime
A perfectly serviceable action/thriller movie. Doesn't move the needle nor raise the straight to DVD genre out of its usual glum and predictable plot, storyline or dialogue.
You get the feeling in the hands of better writers, directors and actors this might have been worthy of a box office release.
My closing thought goes to Cuba Gooding Jr. who seems to have lost his way since Jerry Maguire. All I'm saying Cuba, is that when they ask you to star in these schlocky movies, it's OK to say "No thank-you." versus "Show Me Da Money!"
Competently made DTV action, with a strong leading turn from Cuba Gooding Jr.
Really enjoyed this DTV action thriller, more emphasis on plot that action which raised this above the usual fare, Cuba Gooding Jr is on top form as psychotic hitman Jonas as is Cole Hauser in a rare role where he's not playing a complete douche. Interesting Premise too.
Cuba Gooding Jr. mal nicht in einer Komödie. Den Killer spielt er überzeugend.
