Critic Reviews for The Heavy

All Critics (1)

Heavy has ambition. It also has 18 credited producers, which may be the reason why the film looks manically executed yet remains frustratingly undercooked.

Audience Reviews for The Heavy

A police officer Dunn (Vinnie Jones) with an axe to grind...A hit man (Gary Stretch) Boots Mason with nothing to lose...A polititian Christian Mason (Adrian Paul) with high political ambitions...and a business man (Stephen Rea) Anawalt with a job that's so heavy...the consequences may or may not be beneficial for his business. Throw all of these characters into this story just to find out who gets out just by getting even....Nicely paced interesting conclusion! Try it!

**1/2 (out of four) Better than expected thanks to a slick production and fast pacing. But it still needed a bit more depth to carry it to the next level. Gary Stretch is a thug who blames his politician brother for the death of his child. He is more than happy to take a new assignment that requires him to assassinate his brother.

If I had to pay any more then $1 to watch this then I wouldn't have done it.I only rented this movie from Redbox because the DVD cover looked interesting.That was a $1 wasted & 1 hour & 43 minutes of my life I'll never get back
