Quotes:
Jonas Arbor: God doesn't discriminate, I guess he made me in his own image. Life's a fluke, Allen. A flash in the pan, and then it's over; a trigger is like a fast forward button. I just skip to the end credits on other people's lives. Or not. The choice is mine to make.



User Review

Be careful what you wish for!

Rating: 10/10

I do not understand how people can downgrade this movie so badly, the acting is great, the story is excellent, one of the best I've seen in the past 12months and the movie itself is also way better than the most movies coming around on a daily basis. Sadly its not a high budget movie, so the common public would become aware of it, but downgrading something like that is pretty sad. If that is a 2 or 3, then the grading rates should go in the future down to minus 10 at least, because there are a lot of worse movies out there!

Its the same with another Cuba Gooding movie, Sacrifice, its also way better than the reviews show, but thats is a different subject. Maybe he is not so liked anymore...:-)

To me The Hit List is a good 7-8...not a 10 (except the story itself), but in regards of the downgrading, I upgrade it a bit. The story of the movie is simple, be careful what you wish for, even when you are drunk...because sometimes wishes come true!

More I do not want to spoil. Conclusion: absolutely worth the time watching and money as well...!

(I do not write many reviews here, only when I see that a movie is so badly discredited like this one!)
