I watched Killshot yesterday. I taped it when it was on Flix channel. It is based on a book by Elmore Leonard. (I haven’t read the book, but I might.) It has Mickey Rourke, Brandon McGibbon, Hal Holbrook, Diane Lane, Thomas Jane, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Don McManus in it.

Big Warning: there is some violence and a sad ending.

In this movie, an assassin goes to kill an old man. Meanwhile a young guy blackmails a real estate man. The young guy gets a chance encounter with the assassin who decides to help the young guy learn how to do things right. The problem is the young guy isn’t so easy to teach and he’s really rude. They go to the real estate office and a couple is there instead of the real estate guy. The couple sees them which means they have to die. In the end the good wins.

I did like this movie, but I would have written the ending differently. Next week I’m watching Lord of War.
