Dead Fish is a must watch for any Gary Oldman fan. He is nothing short of amazing in this. Very similar to his comedic work in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead.

In this film he plays a hitman who ends up with his cell phone being switched at a train station. He falls in love with the girl who he mixes phones with (although it's her slacker boyfriend's phone). Craziness begins as the boyfriend and his druggy friend get a call about a hit. The best was Gary Oldman busting out in song during a BDSM session. Great supporting cast of Robert Carlyle as a foul mouthed loan shark, Billy Zane as an ultra nerdy hitman assistant/handler, and Terence Stamp as the hitman's target. Fabulous!

A movie Stands out from the others with its rare kind of out

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I would consider every movie a good movie watching which I have a good time, especially when this feeling is confirmed to last with the ending of the movie leaving a good taste at me.It feels good to end something with the feeling of knowing that each second spent on it was totally worth it.This movie a friend of mine(to whom I should thank at the soonest occasion)gave to me was one of those movies in the every sense of the word, making me wonder while watching what was gonna happen, how the story would continue to unfold in the next scenes.Each character chosen to play in this movie suits his/her role perfectly in my opinion.Andrew Lee Potts couldn't have possibly acted better among these good actors as Abu character who is a kind of guy who mostly finds himself in the middle of the unsolveable-looking tough situations he didn't begin, yet each time finds a way to get out of the situation with the lest damage, sure with the luck on his side.I liked a lot his vulnerable, innocent character who is inside a good person and never wants to do the wrong thing indeed but is drawn to bad situations as things happen totally unplanned and out of his control.Robert Carlyle :) lol well this talkative Scottish man's character doesn't require to make any comments I would say, he's a movie on his own :) I burst out laughing most on the scenes where he plays...One of the most gifted actors I've seen yet lol.Love every move he makes...Billy Zane and others are good as well bringing a different taste into the movie making it more watchable in its different comedy line.The ending was totally unpredictable for me as it will most likely be for you, surely on the condition that you don't read it here or elsewhere, which you shoudln't.Overall this is certaintly a good comedy movie the story of which unfolds literally in a much different&nicer way than those that I've watched in the last years, which is why I've given it 5 out of 5."
