14 September 1999 | Troll-9
| An abominable misuse of a Great Jim Thompson Novel.
Hit me wastes the film rights to Jim Thompson's excellent novel A SWELL-LOOKING BABE. The story is discarded in favor of a pointless exercise in Scenery-chewing by the usually superb Elias Koteas. We witness pointless double-crosses and mindless plot twists while perverting the novel."Hit Me" is a show of mediocre style instead of things that most people like in movies: good characters, exciting plot, witty dialogue, things like that.

Jim Thompson fans, the only people who would want to see this movie anyways, should be prepared for disappointment.
