  The Killshot That Misses

| | See all takeone's reviews (19)

Mickey Rourke steps into familar shoes to play a hitman on a mission. After accidently killing his own little brother he takes the loose cannon Joseph Gorden'Levitt under his wing - as he reminds him of his brother and sees this as a kind of mends. The story jumps around to follow a plot about Diane Lane and estranged hubby Thomas Jane witnessing Mikey Rourke's identity after a botched heist. They move into witness protection but it isn't long until Rourke and his hot headed companion track them down...

The performances are fine in this Elmore Leonard story (although the always reliable Rosario Dawson is under used) and Rourke plays a fine hitman. However the script and story is ridiculous in parts which makes you understand why this flick when straight to DVD in the UK.

Worth a note is the Blu Ray edition is only available on import as the high def version never had a UK release. The Blu Ray transfer is excellent as is the sound. The extras are no exsistant bar a short film included based on an Elmore Leonard short story. This bonus 30 min quirky odd film is directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and stars Eric Stoltz about an insurance scam.
