Pretty good retired mob hitman film where the hitman is once again targeted by his former employers. For a 90's film it holds up pretty well and Eric Roberts is always delightfully brooding and dark.. There are some high octane car cases that are exiting and well done. The substandard acting by a few and the cartoon stereotypes of the mobsters bring it down a star but its plenty watchable.

Its not a bad movie at all. Eric gives his usual solid performance. Think the Specialist with Sylvester Stallone. That's gonna be what Eric gives you and like I said earlier, that's not a bad thing. The story line wasn't bad and his relationship, with the " punk" kid that he smacks around a little is pretty funny at times.

Seemed like it was made in the 80's although it wasn't. A bit cliched and predictable - 'ok', lacked any real depth of plot or character development, in fact some of them seemed over acted at times, a bit like a cartoon. if you just want to veg out for a bit and watch something, it will do. Just.

Loved the movie. Good chase scenes, and Farrah Forke was awesome. If you like action, this is a good movie to watch.

Eric Roberts is a Hit Man in witness protection with a new family. Of course something go wrong and the Marshall Service can't protect him so he uses his old skills to take care of the new problem. Great action, good plot, and many actors you have seen before. Lots of twist and never ending problems for him and his friends but when it come to his family an friends he is Stone Cold.

Really bad, but sort of entertaining bad. Like a car wreck you have to look not believing that someone would make a movie this bad on so many levels is just about the only enjoyment I got out of watching it. If it had not been on in the background while I was on the computer I would not have watched the whole thing.

This movie was soooo bad that I'd rather watch a Dolph Lundgren movie marathon, and that has to be the near equivalent to choosing to commit suicide by slow cooker! It seemed like a movie made in the late 60s or early 70s, instead of something near the turn of the 21st century. To put this in context, this movie was released the same year as "Payback," "The Matrix," "8MM," "The Corruptor," "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels," "True Crime," and "In Too Deep, among films in or near the same genre. How in the world did this dated, poorly-choreographed, slow "action" film get made?

If there were anything to SPOIL, here's where I'd advise SPOILER ALERT. But, alas, this movie was a rotten tomato before it was even planted!

Let's start with the script was awful. If I'd seen this movie in 1972, I would've given it one star. But, the mere fact that this movie was released in 1999, it gets even harsher treatment. None of the actors gave a credible performance, and the stereotypical "wise guys" seemed like they were plucked from an episode of "Starsky and Hutch," "Kojak," or "Police Woman." Absolutely nothing made sense in this movie--from the plot and plot twists to the action sequences. It's as if the screenwriter did no research whatsoever. The CIA is performing hits for a mob family. A former hitman for that crime family has chosen to spare the life of an ordered hit, and so he went on the run into witness protection, where within a year, he's set up house with a mother and her eight- or nine-year-old daughter who's calling him "Daddy" already. And when the mom learns she's been shacked up with a former hitman, her response is basically, "Do you have any more secrets?" and "We have a lot to discuss..." Seriously?
