5.0 out of 5 stars Three cheers for The Hit Girl!!, March 15, 2013
This review is from: The Hit Girl (DVD)
Wow! I love supporting indie-anything, and this endeavor by indie film maker James Ward really delivers!! The Hit Girl is a surprisingly well-rounded effort; the script is fresh and entertaining; the characters are extremely likable; the acting is extremely well done, and the cinematography is pretty darn seamless - - nothing jarring to take you out of the moment while watching. I hate to sound like a skeptic by using a word like "surprisingly", but the quality of this movie is much more "mature" than I was anticipating. I am willing to compare it to Robert Rodriguez' first effort, El Mariachi, which was more low-budget-looking than The Hit Girl, in my opinion.

I am the mother of 4, but my kids are all >13+ yrs now, so this movie was appropriate for them all to enjoy. No gratuitous language, some violence (after all, it is about a hitman, errr, hit girl!), and some fairly tame strip club action, but overall a movie that parents can enjoy with their teens. There is plenty of humor, subtle humor, not in your face farce humor. I am a sucker for strong female characters who are forced by circumstances beyond their control to conquer their fear and discomfort in order to defend and protect others (a la Buffy the Vampire Slayer), and I have to say, the characters of the hit girl and the niece were strongly written to fit that bill. As the mom of girls, I really appreciate that! I highly recommend The Hit Girl!
