Your trusty Boys On Film – Phil Marriott and Raj Rudolph (moi) did the BFI London Film Festival again this year and our first review is from one of our favorite directors Richard Linklater.
We simply couldn’t miss this one.
HIT MAN is an American action comedy film co-produced and directed by Linklater and starring Glen Powell, both of whom wrote the screenplay based on the 2001 Texas Monthly magazine article of the same name by Skip Hollandsworth.
When I tell you this “strange-but-kinda-true” film is unexpectedly funny – I mean it. I didn’t have much expectations going into this one, but by the time I left, I was smiling ear-to-ear.
So without further ado, here’s our in-depth review of HIT MAN.
Not sure when HIT MAN comes out, but go see it – streaming or in theatres, it’s a good time – especially if you like a bit of dark comedy.
From IMDB: Gary Johnson is the most sought-after professional killer in New Orleans. To his clients, he is like something out of a movie: the mysterious gun for hire. But if you pay him to rub out a cheating spouse or an abusive boss, you’d better watch your back he works for the cops. When he breaks protocol to help a desperate woman trying to flee an abusive husband, he finds himself becoming one of his false personas, falling for the woman and flirting with turning into a criminal himself.
