Genre: Crime / Drama / Thriller

Stars: Mickey Rourke, Diane Lane, Thomas Jane, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rosario Dawson

Synopsis: A hit man for the Toronto mafia teams up unexpectedly with a small time conspicuous crook but when their extortion scheme goes sour they choose to hunt down the witnesses that have been placed in a federal protection program.

AltAss Ratings (On a scale of 1 to 5 asses)


In some regards it makes for an exciting storyline but why would a professional cool hitman get involved with a young hot shot that obviously would get him arrested or killed?

Writing / Production:               

"Killshot" goes back and forth between being really interesting and kind of dull.  There was not a lot of sympathy generated for the victim couple which will leave more audiences cheering for the villains than usual.


Mickey Rourke certainly stands apart from the rest of the cast but this movie was pretty well acted.


Everything in this movie is very familiar except the pairing of the two villains which really is just an ignorant plot hole.


"Killshot" has some entertainment value but don't expect any extraordinary creativity.  Maybe the film would have made a little more sense if Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character wouldn't have been so over the top and out of control.
