This film is fantastic. Finally well-written characters you can love for all their good and bad. Pierce Brosnan is flat-out hysterical in this self-effacing role. I think its the best thing he's ever done. He's done other roles that exhibited shades of being capable of this kind of fully-fledged work, but this role finally gave him the room to run with it. I almost died when he walked across the hotel lobby in his underwear and boots. And Greg Kinnear and Hope Davis are a couple to aspire too, as well as actors to aspire too. Kinnear is so goofy likable that his turn in the end is truly gratifying. You give good actors good work to play with and they give us something more back.

Really worthy filmReviewed byBARBARA_FIXXVote: 7/10
What little corner of the human mind did the marketers tickle on this one? Because by God . . . to the tune of Beethoven's 5th . . . this movie stank! Maybe it's some sort of pseudo sophistication people feel by laughing at (with?) Brosnan's character's vile . . . humor? This movie was stupid, pointless, crap. Can we separate out the Canadian vote, so I can see if there is yet another reason to move to Canada? I'm there if the average Canadian vote for this stinker was under 3.
What was redeeming about the story? Didn't people guess it? I didn't care anyway. How about Hope Davis? What made her character appealing at all? And the Greg Kinnear Permo-Look-o-Wonder -- started to look pretty stupid after awhile -- makes me want to wait a few movies before I see him again. And I like Greg Kinnear.
It's been an awful year for movies this year. Maybe dragging out one with some usual faves, and putting a good marketing spin on it, made people give it a high rating. I think IMDb is becoming less and less reliable.
It is not often one extols the great talents of a screen legend while at that same time, reminding oneself, some role are better avoided. Despite the fact that many fans would welcome a diversity, I would remind them, great talent and sincere effort cannot overcome the burden of playing a character which forces the actor to do something other than act. Such is the case with the magnificence talent of Pierce Bronsen as he undertakes the role of Julian Nobel. He plays a hit man, which under normal circumstances would have been an ideal character for him. But in this film, he plays him on the way down. He is a burned-out assassin who has lost his nerve. So much so, he reveals his flagging ability to his boss, who insist and reminds Nobel, he cannot ever quit. Thus Nobel has no choice but to ask help from a total stranger, Greg Kinnear, who plays, average, normal and "I don't want to get involve "Danny Wright. The pair find themselves in Mexico and form an odd adhesive set. One is trying to get on with his life, the other trying to hang on to his. Despite, their great effort to find common ground, grudgingly they do, causing the viewer is be subjected to much more movie than should have been collected. I believe it's too much to ask of either actor to save this film as it was doomed when Bronsen was asked to destroy himself. **
