A globetrotting hitman and a crestfallen businessman meet in a hotel bar in Mexico City in an encounter that draws them together in a way neither expected. I liked this movie.

Not worth watching. A big disappointment as a Brosnan fan.

This film works on so many levels. For one, Pierce Brosnan gives one of the finest performances I've ever seen as a burnt-out, mentally unstable hitman. Two, it is a fascinating character study. Three, it is absolutely hilarious. But most of all, the relationship that develops between Brosnan and Greg Kinnear's characters makes for one of the funniest, most believable, and most genuinely touching buddy pairings in cinema history.

You've never seen Pierce Brosnan like this! An acutely informed rendering of a rather dislikeable character. This is why we like indie films.
