Based on the novel of Elmore Leonard, the film is slickly made low budget thriller telling a hit man story. Ultimately it’s story of near to break up husband wife duo who witnessed two killers accidentally and same trail and chase gimmicks. If there’s some good twists in the climax it would regarded as better thriller.
We have seen Mickey Rourke in ‘The Wrestler’ and watching him here as Contract killer named ‘Blackbird’ working for Toronto Mafia is just tailor-made role for him and he carried it so well. The film also has Diane Lane and Rosario Dawson in trivial roles. Although the film never raise above B grader film in plot but its treatment and performance of Rourke which makes film worth to watch once.
One time watch is OK.
