Pierce Brosnan's trying to shake his James
Bond image playing a character named Julian Noble, an assassin
for hire whose sense of style can be summed up as a crude jerk
who lacks a sensor on his big mouth.
is dark humor but still manages to make a flamboyant crowd pleaser.
The surprising ending pulls this movie
together in a highly satisfying way.
Just like his performance in the underrated
Tailor of Panama, Pierce Brosnan goes to great lengths
to shake his James Bond image. But apparently you can take away
the spy, but not the license to kill.
Great performances highlight this mismatched
buddy film about a burnt-out assassin and a down-on-his-luck
businessman who come to each other's aid with hilarious results.
Pierce Brosnan, best known as James Bond

by franchise owners.
They showed him the door with very little
respect, in my view. They told him that in the next Bond film
they wanted to go younger & rethought the role.
is Pierce Brosnan's roll of the dice movie, where he departs
from agent 007 to play a neurotic hit man.
This comedy about an aging cold-blooded
assassin who befriends a stranger and shows him some tricks of
the trade just did not work for me.
