Editorial Reviews

Randy Quaid (Brokeback Mountain, Kingpin) and Jay Baruchel (Tropic Thunder, Knocked Up) deliver dead-on performances in this gripping thriller about a hit man who gives a down-and-out compulsive gambler just one last hour to live. Clever and fast-paced, this festival favorite will keep you guessing until its shocking conclusion that will stay with you long after it's over.

I was actually surprised by this little indie that no one has heard about or seen. It has a straight-forward premise of learning some life lessons and trying to educate those that are down on their luck. They picked two ideal candidates to play the roles of teacher and student, but both in the worst possible way.

Quaid plays a hitman who decides to take his assigned mark (played by Baruchel in only the way he can with those Joshisms and characteristics unique to his acting) on a journey of learning before he carries out the ugly deed. The majority of the film takes place in Quaid's vehicle driving to their end destination in the woods. So yes, there is roughly an hour of conversation in a moving vehicle, but by the end you feel it all served a purpose, some see it coming and others do not. In that sense, the film was actually made well enough to spur discussion, yet seem believable.

The only real fault I heard was Quaid's Aussie/NZ accent slipping in and out well over 100 times, but I guess that is authentic (in reading the variety of discussions out there). There are some comedic moments but I feel this film is far from being classified as a comedy. The disc supplements give some insight on the process and the quality of the overall DVD is well produced.

4.0 out of 5 stars My two cents July 7, 2009
By Pedxing
There was only one other review so I thought I'd throw in my two cents worth. It has decent dialogue and acting, it's thought provoking and the main character is a cat lover. It has the sparseness of a play since there are only 3 characters not counting the cats. It wasn't a waste of my time.

4.0 out of 5 stars good, nothing too exciting but its quality December 19, 2009
its not a thriller or a comedy by any means. its a slow movie, all drama and dialog. fairly predictable at the very end too, but it gets the point across really well, and that is our lives are what we make of it nothing more nothing less. its one of those movies that once youre done youll just be happy that you have a sidewalk to shovel instead of complaining that its cold outside.
