Forget the cover notes. This film was fun.
Bishop is an assassin. Bishop meets girl. Control freak boss orders hit on Bishops girlfriend. Then control freak boss orders hit on his own girlfriend. But things aren't exactly what you'd expect. Especially the hotdogs!
A fun feel good film (despite the body count). Lots of good looking guys with bald heads and very smart suits making being an assasin look like, well like any regular job really. Kind of a Black Pulp Fiction (dialogue) meets XXX (tattoos, hardware and body count) meets Shaft (ooooh style, walk it baby, walk it).
Great if you're in need of a pick me up, more eye candy than brain food but it has it's thoughtful moments.
There are some nods towards questions of morality and conscience, good cooking tips, a lot of black humour, a bit of martial arts, a little romance, and lots and lots of guns and shooting.
After passing this one by in the video shop for many months I finally borrowed it and I'm buying my own copy today, definately recommended.
The cover description only bares a passing resemblance to the film and it put me off for a long time because it sounded like glorified blood, guts and macho men. Which it kind of is but with that all important ingredient. Humour. Guys will definately appreciate it but so will the ladies.
