Fucky Film Review!

The Hit

Posted by Web Manager on July 18, 2009

Stephen Frears 1984

Terrance Stamp rats on the London mob and splits town. Ten years later, John Hurt and a very young Tim Roth catch up with him in Southern Spain, where Mr. Stamp likes to ride around on bikes and read a lot of amazing things in books thanks to which he is cool as a cucumber in the face of the fate that the two men are delivering him unto, much to the consternation of the excitable Mr. Roth. John Hurt looks pretty awesome in his linen suit and oversized Wayfarers, and Mr. Frears makes good use of the desolate Spanish landscapes, but overall the film felt a little flat – especially the end, which was the one thing I was really looking forward to throughout the picture. That it was done that way on purpose didn’t make it any better.
