An underrated movie

2 years, 5 months ago at Oct 25 9:53
Even though this movie is nowadays pretty much forgotten, there was a pretty good buzz around it when it was released so I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, I wasn’t disappointed. Indeed, if you wonder if Pierce Brosnan is a good actor or not, you shouldn't really check his Bond flicks (which are fine, by the way) but you should check this underrated/unknown gem. In my opinion, Brosn... read more

thescriptlab's 10 Great Seduction Scenes (10 movies items)

"Julian Noble (Pierce Brosnan) is a hit man who travels the world. Danny Wright (Greg Kinnear) is a downtrodden, conservative businessman. They meet one night in a bar in Mexico. The two are completely opposite. In every way. Against the odds, they strike up a conversation and start to become chummy. This encounter produces an awkward, but interesting relationship. Each man, though polar opposites, is falling apart at the seams. Eventually, the two men part ways. However, months later Julian show"

An underrated movie

“Even though this movie is nowadays pretty much forgotten, there was a pretty good buzz around it when it was released so I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, I wasn’t disappointed. Indeed, if you wonder if Pierce Brosnan is a good actor or not, you shouldn't really check his Bond flicks (which are fine, by the way) but you should check this underrated/unknown gem. In my opinion, Brosnan gave here, easily, the best performance of his career, seriously , and he managed to portray a hit-man who is, at the same time, lethal but also a terrible loser. As his sparring partner, you have Greg Kinnear , basically playing the straight man, who gave also a top-notch performance. Together, they basically rocked the house and I thought they were just quite hilarious. Honestly, I have never” read more

"I have never been so entranced by colors in a non-Burton film. They are as interesting as its unusual characters. Another great teaming, with Brosnan and Kinnear. "
