Asher (Ron Perlman) is a contract killer who's spent the better part of his life ending other lives, taking orders from Avi (Richard Dreyfuss). He lives a lonely existence, making friends out of fine wine and good food, resenting his apprentice, Uzi (Peter Facinelli), who's taking jobs from him due to youth. When Avi hands Asher three contracts for a revenge scheme, the hitman takes the job, only to lose consciousness due to health issues, making accidental contact with Sophie (Famke Janssen), a ballet teacher distraught over mother Dora (Jacqueline Bisset), who's losing her battle with dementia. Asher and Sophie make a connection, embarking on a tentative courtship where the murderer can't share anything about his life. As the pair work out their flirtations, Asher is forced to pair with Uzi on a group hit, and when that goes bad for a moment, the veteran soon becomes marked for death, threatening all the good that's come into his world. —blu-ray.com
Ron Perlman plays the role of contract killer and after being giving the job to kill the people who were behind the murder of a family attached to his crime family organization, he gets in front of the apartment door of the one of his hits, he then collapses from an old wound that has taking a toll on his body and crash lands on another apartment door (Famke) she opens he completely goes down on her floor and there the old formula of the contractor falling in love and wanting to get out the business begins. Has this been done before? Yes. Is this film bad? Not at all. Definitely watchable. And it's not just because I'm a big Perlman fan, but the story did make sense. At best, a weekend afternoon, I got time to kill film. Nothing more, but decent.
