"May the best hitman win. "When a Las Vegas performer-turned-snitch named Buddy Israel (Piven) decides to turn state's evidence and testify against the mob, it seems that a whole lot of people would like to make sure he's no longer breathing.
A lot better than what it's given credit for...
I've read some of the reviews for this movie, and I can't agree with
them. I completely disagree in that I thought this was a very
entertaining movie. The concept was very well thought out but it wasn't
Basically, the movie was about several groups of assassins all gunning
for the same man for the same price. The reason he is wanted dead is
because of his snitching and deceitful ways. I'm not going to give
anything away, but once you watch the movie you'll know there's a lot
more behind that. Only thing you really need to do is pay as close
attention as you can during the beginning, because it does get a little
confusing. The story moves along pretty quickly, but you will get the
gist of it.
Overall, I thought it was very well done. The plot was good, the
characters were amazing (especially Ryan Reynolds), and there were some
nice action parts. Even though it dragged on a little bit during the
middle, it was necessary to develop plot details. 9 out of 10 stars
from me; it was very entertaining and thought provoking. Last but not
least, the white karate kid in the trailer was hilarious, "Why you
eye-ballin' me son!?".
