Death, power, deception. They're all the subjects of Stephen Frears' "The Hit," and they all have their time in the spotlight. From the opening scene, "The Hit" seems to have all the workings of a great movie. So why is it merely a good one?

Surely not the actors, who have talent written all over them- Terrance Stamp, John Hurt, Tim Roth in his pre-"Reservoir Dogs" days. Surely ... read more

“Death, power, deception. They're all the subjects of Stephen Frears' "The Hit," and they all have their time in the spotlight. From the opening scene, "The Hit" seems to have all the workings of a great movie. So why is it merely a good one?

Surely not the actors, who have talent written all over them- Terrance Stamp, John Hurt, Tim Roth in his pre-"Reservoir Dogs" days. Surely not the setting of steamy Spain, which has the feel and intensity of a wild, dangerous place.

"Stephen Frears orders around Terrence Stamp, John Hurt, and Tim Roth (in a very early role) to make him a movie filled with hitmen and road trips and bumbling crooks acting like jackasses. They all succeed. "
