Its really a shame when you have several actors who have done quality work in the past who star in a film to only turn up for the pay cheque. Bad dialogue, creaky storyline, plot holes of similar size to the grand canyon. Not good. Disappointed etc etc
John Cusack and Robert De Niro star in this action-packed crime thriller about a hit-man named Jack, Cusack, who takes an assignment to deliver a mysterious bag to his crafty boss, De Niro, with strict instructions not to look inside. With the help of an elusive, beautiful woman, Rebecca Da Costa, The Firstling, Jack battles a mess-load of gunfire, a slew of crooked cops and unruly mobsters on a deadly quest to deliver the precious cargo and earn a big pay day. This action-packed crime thriller also stars Crispin Glover, Back to the Future and Rapper Sticky Fingaz.
Switched it of after 20 mins. Complete pants. Not worthy of 1 star.
Hoping for everything a Cusack-DeNiro noir match-up might have been like? So were we. And — to be fair — they probably do their best with the material this film affords them. The problem is that the plot rests far too much weight on inexplicable behaviour, unsympathetic characters and situations, and murky lighting.
Really, I can’t think of anyone I know for whom this would make even a guilty pleasure. It’s a film that MST3K would reject as unmockable, because it is its own pitiless mockery.
I kept having to stop watching because I was so bored and irritated by this film, coming back to try again on 3 occasions. However, I still haven't finished it and doubt I ever will.
Total copy of idea from transporter films, but not as good without Jason statham
This is quite dreadful. Any analysis would be a further waste of my time. It is sad to see what De Niro has been relegated to...
