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.
Besides having a superb screenplay, Frears is blessed, here, with an unparalleled cast. Both Hurt and Stamp are as good as they've ever been, while the very young Tim Roth makes a very promising debut.
Superb acting from Hurt and Stamp is enough to smooth over any rough patches.
'The Hit' gives the great Terence Stamp what is arguably his best role.
really more of an exploration of the disjunction between exteriors and interiors, and while some may find it slow-going, those who see it for what it is will find it an intriguing portrait of human nature
transmits an alien grip on atmosphere and tone that keeps one enthralled even as it ponders the very basis of being
The film is not as good as the Eric Clapton music in the background.
Antagonizing conceptions of life and death among criminals. An stylish and multi-layered examination of that moment of truth, of coming to terms with the vague but terrifying notion of parting this world. Fantastic performances by the leading triad. Probably Frears' best and most underrated cinematic venture.
Pretty good little film. A sparse script and an amazing Terence Stamp performance kept my eyes peeled to this slow-moving snail of a film. I can't say that I didn't enjoy every bit of it though. The way Stamp works everyone in a little chess game is reason enough to see it, but Fernando Rey was completely invisible in this film!
It's a hit !
A little gem of a picure this one. Great casting, great performances and strong and complex characters give this fairly low budget movie a punch that hits (groan) above its weight and keeps the viewer thoroughly involved from start to finish.
Some of the major plot points don't make a lot of sense, the inclusion of the young Spanish girl and subsequent failed attempts to kill her, in particular is rather silly. But the performances of John Hurt, Tim Roth, and Terence Stamp are all great, but not enough to save the film from its narrative shortcomings.
