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.

" 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. "
