I’ll stop there, except to note that Dwight has zero skills as an assassin. In large part, that’s what drives the suspense: Unlike Charles Bronson, he doesn’t really know what he’s doing. He never has quite the right weapon for the situation. Things get messy, and then messier, and finally completely out of control. Through all of it, he retains a certain decency that only deepens his disadvantage.
It’s a violent movie, so there’s that. But even if that kind of thing bothers you, it’s worth sitting through just to see Eve Plumb in a small role that should banish forever any fond recollections about Jan Brady. Dave Bob calls it the best movie he’s seen this year! Seriously, check it out.
Heading off to watch. 🙂
