SYNOPSIS

A veteran assassin, dreaming of retirement, is paired with an eager young driver on a mission to carry out a long-distance 'hit' job. After crashing his gangster stepfather's prize car, Adam is forced to repay the debt by teaming up with professional hit man, Roy, to act as driver on what should be a swift and easy mission. Whilst Roy desperately wants to leave the killing game, Adam develops into an enthusiastic and aspirational hit-man. The pair take a road trip ending deep in a forest, far away from home. Roy executes the target with ruthless efficiency only for the duo to then realize they've been caught in the act. A beautiful, mysterious young woman has witnessed the murder and professional code dictates that she must also now be dispatched. As the two men deliberate over killing her, their witness makes her escape with an incriminating piece of evidence. Thus begins a cat and mouse chase that ultimately reveals the sinister reason for Adam's stepfather having commissioned the deadly hit and the true identity of their witness and her reasons for seeking retribution on the gangster.


REVIEWS

  • BIFFF: Klungelende huurmoordenaars, kleurrijke gangsters, macabere seriemoordenaars en wraakzuchtige femmes fatales zijn de belangrijkste ingrediënten Deze duistere komische thriller kan rekenen op de magnetische vertolking van Tim Roth als uitgebluste huurmoordneaar Roy, Peter Mullan als intimiderende Tony Soprano van dienst en jong talent Jack O'Connell als Adam.
