It is a dexterously balanced killer thriller by the idiosyncratic Frears, whose every scene becomes a matter of life and death. A lighter clicks, a gun clicks; life or death, it all sounds the same.

"The Hit" is something special: thoughtful, perfectly performed and carrying the clear stamp of an extremely interesting director.

Frears and writer Peter Prince have taken a potentially familiar tale of a gangland betrayal and revenge and made something richly inventive and most entertaining.

All in all, a very palpable hit.

These guys don't have to use guns. All they have to do is open their mouths and bore each other to death.
