“...several cuts above its fellow midbudget horror brethren. ”~Variety
Aroview: An ex-solider turned contract killer descends into a disturbing netherworld while embarking on this latest hit in this dark, twisted thriller from the dir. of DOWN TERRACE.
A film perhaps best 'enjoyed' without reading too much synopsis (or perhaps not), let's just say that it's a film that mixes the hitman and horror genres with domestic drama, but hardly ever at the same time. Recommended for its solid character build and a controlled sense of doom that is tethered to the volcanic temperament of Neil Maskell's central character, but less so for its narrative transgressions. Worth a look for fans of 'smart' video nasties.

4 stars (Very Good) Not what it seems, video nasty? Gore fans will be disappointed, art fans will enjoy more. ~filmbuff77
3 stars (Good Enough) The opening scene puts you on your guard & you spend the rest of the film waiting for Neil Maskell to blow. He's a convincing nutter & the rest of the cast are also very good. Although the final scenes are not quite convincing the whole is well worth it. ~tubbs
3 stars (Good Enough) Jay (Maskell)'s escalating instability effectively builds tension, as do the intimate camera shots. But the domestic and professional violence erodes our sympathy for him: another bad person who suffers. ~gnomon
