Movie Info

Arthur Banks (Kiefer Sutherland) is a top-tier hit man who works mainly for the South American drug lords. His MO is to befriend women who will help him lure his prey, then kill them when they are no longer of any use. On his latest job, he meets Bennie Harper (Melora Walters), a woman fleeing an abusive husband, and the pattern seems to be repeating itself. This time, however, he is being closely monitored by the FBI -- and his mark may not be who she appears to be.

    I watched this simply because I'm a fan of Kiefer Sutherland, especially in his bad ass roles. While for fans of his the film offers some cool moments, it fails overall. The biggest problem is the lead actress, Melora Walters, who is horrendous. Think of the female version of Mark Wahlberg in The Happening. It's that bad. The plot was also largely nonsensical, with very poorly written dialogue that only Sutherland was able to deliver with any believability. The police also have a bad habit of showing up randomly despite having no apparent actionable intelligence, they just know things.

    Kiefer Sutherland, the good guy of TV's <i>24</i>, goes bad in this dusty thriller in which he plays university-educated professional assassin Arthur Banks working his way towards one last hit, employing a help-me-or-I'll-shoot-you kind of charm. His modus operandi involves picking up a woman and forcing her into the accomplice position, but like Jack Bauer in <i>24</i>, I'm meant to like for him, ignoring his blooded occupation, his lack of conversation and a disinclination to reveal his pearly whites.
