The idea of hit-man as victum and loveable character is a great twist. Taking Pierce Brosnan out of his character comfort zone into comedy is brilliant. Greg Kinnear is the great straight-man in a fish-out-of water experience. It boils down to a odd buddy movie which I found strangely heart-warming.
There is enough depth to this movie I've enjoyed watching it 3 times now can catching jewels each time that I'd missed.
This much under-sung movie is a hidden jewel in my opinion and worth a watch to anyone who loves the surreal.
Similar to the other documentary movie, by the same title, this backdrop, and analogous hit-man title, lends itself to the pageantry of the bull fight.
The colors of Mexico city and the Camino Real hotel really pop on Blu Ray, and just gives you a sense of being in Mexico city.
Otherwise, the topic is somewhat comical, as the hit man finds his only friend in the perfect stranger he meets in the the hotel bar. Overall a decent buddy movie.
