Reviewed on 10/26/2008...
Although I truly abhorr bullfights and the like, I do love the character portrayed by Pierce Brosnan, as the somewhat seedy, often humorous, pretty crude, off-his-game hitman. Gives me a whole new respect for Pierce Brosnan. Waaay better than all his over-scrubbed, oh-so-sleek James Bond/Remington Steel type personas. He truly makes this movie worth watching. He is totally mesmerizing and oh-so-funny in this role. Perfect comedic timing! It is his best role ever. Truly shows his acting ability.

Needless to add, Greg Kinear is always fun to have around.

Aside from all that, the plot is pretty original too. And there is a very cool twist at the end. What more could one ask for?
