Product Description

Amazon.ca

In Hitman, Chuck Norris is a ruthless undercover cop who has infiltrated the organization of a Seattle mobster (Al Waxman). Norris is willing to use any method to bring down both his "boss" and a rival Canadian mobster. However, when he's not crime-busting, Norris finds time to befriend a fatherless kid. Also in the cast are Michael Parks, Alberta Watson, Ken Pogue, Marcel Sabourin (as the rival mobster) and Bruno Gerussi. Directed by Norris' brother, Aaron, this is a good-looking film, but the sub-plot involving a child--no doubt intended to humanize Norris' dark character--is awkward. Although the way the writers add a Canadian element to the movie is admirable, it's also a bit odd having a French-Canadian mobster in British Columbia. The weirdest and most unsettling part of the flick--at least for a Canadian audience--is seeing Bruno Gerussi, best known for his starring role in the long running CBC family series The Beachcombers, in this decidedly non-family film. Especially since he meets a particularly grisly end! --D.K. Latta

Format: DVD
this is the story of a cop who has been undercover for 2 years,posing
as a hit-man.Chuck Norris plays CliffGarret/Danny Grogan in the title
role.Garret is his really name,while Grogan is his undercover
identity.this movie is much darker than most Norris films.Chuck gets to
focus more on his dramatic acting ability than martial arts(though
there is a bit of that)and handles himself quite nicely.he is very
credible in his portrayal of the icy killer.the score for the film is
very appropriate and adds to the atmosphere.there are great
performances all around,including Al Waxman as the head of one of the
criminal factions and Grogan's boss,Bruno Gerusi as one of his
underlings,and Michael Parks who plays Ronald "Del" Delany,a bitter
enemy of Norris's character.Ken Pogue plays Detective chambers,Garret's
Boss.the production values are very decent for this film.Most of the
dialogue is well written.there is of course lots of violence in this
one,as in most of Chuck's films.overall a very well made,entertaining
film.a strong 3.5/5

This is typical Chuck Norris fare. One needs to suspend belief during the entire "experience".
Chuck is a police detective betrayed and left for dead by his partner. After the shooting, we next see Chuck some years later working as some nebulous enforcer for a local mob. Chuck kills people with equanimity, something for which the law has little tolerance regardless of how much the bad guys deserve it. Chuck shows no respect to his police superior, and gets away with it. Except for infiltration, there seems to be little purpose in his underground work.
He lives in an apartment building and gives out his key to a kid down the hall. His sense of what is safe doesn't seem to be much of a concern. Everyone knows where he lives, even the mob boss' wife, played by Alberta Watson in a wasted role. However she and Chuck lust after each other and when her husband finds out, he decides to kill Chuck, otherwise the movie was going nowhere fast. Now everyone decides to kill everyone. There are 3 gangs involved, one of them Iranian and since this was in '91 when the Gulf War was going on, it's easy to make them bad guys.
Chuck's acting is pretty bad, but not as bad as some of his early stuff. Michael Parks does a reasonable job as the former partner who resurfaces for the obligatory revenge climax. Al Waxman, as the mob boss, does the best he can with the part as written.
I buy these action movies for exercising on a stationary rowing machine. I put the movie on, turn the sound off (a major improvement) and glaze my eyes over as I do my workout without being too bored by the repetitive motion of the exercising machine. I always hope there will be another reason to watch these "action" movies. With this movie, I can't imagine ever watching it with the sound on.
Not a movie for most women.

"The Hit Man" is one of my favorite Chuck Norris movies, primarily because of the complexity of the character he portrays. On the one hand, he is a cold-blooded, heartless, murderous brute who can blow away a cohort from point-blank range without batting an eye; on the other hand, he shows a genuine caring and depth of feeling that is completely opposite from the hit man persona. The film is quite violent, and one scene showing the revenge of one mob against the other shouldn't be viewed by anyone with a weak stomach. But fans of Chuck will be kept entertained from beginning to end. And the bad guy gets his just reward in the most perfect way in the end.
