Dreyfuss sinks his teeth into his handful of scenes, while Bisset hits different but equally effective tones in her moments. The underrated Janssen, striking as ever, does her usual stellar work.
Nothing in the proceedings rings remotely true unless you've been weaned on a steady diet of soulful hit men movies.
Unfortunately the pace is so relaxed as to be meandering; and Jay Zaretsky's screenplay is cliché-packed...
"Asher" can move slowly at times, kind of like its main character, but you find yourself rooting for the old guy.
The familiarity of its over-the-hill hit-man plot leaves 'Asher' of cable or streaming-service quality, but Perlman's formidable presence makes it watchable on those secondary venues.
You can appreciate the character-driven approach of this crime drama while also wishing the titular protagonist had a more compelling movie in which to inhabit.
Asher tries to get by on the talent of its leads, but it's a dull thriller hamstrung by sloppy pacing and a poorly-constructed screenplay.
The simplicity in director Michael Caton-Jones' tale about a man looking to redefine his concept of right and wrong is powerful enough to carry the movie.
Even when revenge doesn't connect, the softer areas of the writing do, delivering a picture that takes some dramatic risks while still delivering moments of blunt trauma.
[director Michael] Caton-Jones's ASHER is as much a contemplative look at being aged out of life as it is recognizing that sometimes we must break out of our ruts to get more.
As obvious and rudimentary as Asher is, it's kind of forgivable when you consider that this movie is really Perlman finally getting his chance to be the sympathetic, charismatic leading man.
I was so disappointed by Asher. I thought "Famke Janssen hooks up with Ron Perlman the retiring assassin? Phenomenal!" unfortunately, it was not so. Wasted good talent, not on terribleness, just on blandness.
