Julian Noble: I need a break. There's no retirement home for assassins is there? Archery at four. Riflery at five.
A fun, dark hitman-comedy with its main draw being the strings of hilarious one-liners that Brosnan gives.
Julian Noble: I'm as serious as an erection problem.
The story involves Brosnan as Julian Noble, a hit man who is going through a midlife crisis and really needs to retire from killing people.
He meets Greg Kinnear as Danny in Mexico City, and the two form a sort of friendship. Danny is in Mexico to hopefully secure a business deal. While staying on, Julian keeps him company and tells him what he does and even shows him how in a way.
After Julian helps Danny in some way, they meet again a year later, as Julian shows up at Danny's door asking for help.
Julian Noble: I look like a Bangkok hooker on a Sunday morning, after the navy's left town.
The story is very good. It also has a little bit of heart and some twists along the way. A good soundtrack accompanies the film, featuring a wide variety of songs to accompany the various visuals going through the film.
The actors are very good. Kinnear is very likable, Brosnan is very good playing against type, and you also have some other character actors including Hope Davis, Philip Baker Hall, and Dylan Baker.
A very enjoyable movie.

Julian Noble: Come on! It'll be a good time!
Danny Wright: Oh, so now killing people is a good time?
Julian Noble: ...Can be.
