The humor is hidden and moves quickly. Ryan Reynolds talks about plastic surgery of a mobster to Ray Liotta and says "Every has-been in Hollywood hasn't had this much surgery." Liotta has been suspected of having a lot of work done, but denies it. I like the way the scenes blend into each other. For instance, two people will shake hands to seal a deal, this then moves into a scene with two people shaking hands greeting each other. The lawyer trying to act hip was funny. In order to get the million dollar bounty, the hitmen will also eliminate their competition. Buddy is held on a secret hotel floor and everyone knows where it is located.
Good action/comedy. Quirky characters. Plot that moves quickly. The sequel is better. Major plot twist at the end, but who cares?
F-bomb, nudity, no sex.
Only we don't. The pacing of this movie should have been like Lock Stock. It's far too slow. It takes almost 20 minutes of talking to set up the premise. Then it's ultra violent but in such an obvious over-the-top way. I mean, one guy has a chainsaw. Hasn't that been done enough? Where are the new ideas?
The actual story is pretty cool--a team of hitmen descend on Lake Tahoe to try to snag the million dollar bounty on a Mafia snitch's head. The director, though, blew it. Another real misstep was his telegraphing scenes so we know who's behind a door or that someone has a gun we were stupid and it showed onscreen.
To the judge and jury, this director has went on to make the equally unwatchable A-Team movie that again had a stellar cast and went nowhere.
If you do buy the DVD, the extras are good but the movie itself is way off the mark.
