About the Movie
Hyperactive at the best of times, Martha (Anna Kendrick; Pitch Perfect) has gone full-on manic since her latest breakup. She babbles, parties like a monster, cooks everything in sight — and is looking to do something terrible when she meets Francis (Sam Rockwell; The Way Way Back). To anyone else, Francis’s approach would come across as creepy, but Martha can’t help but be intrigued. They seem a perfect match: she's bananas, he's bananas... except he's a deadly sort of bananas. He’s a professional assassin.
Francis is a hitman with a cause: he unexpectedly kills the people ordering the hits. Just as Martha begins to realize her new beau wasn't joking when he said he had to step out for a moment to shoot someone, things start heating up for Francis. His services are solicited by a dubious client who's being sought by an equally dubious FBI agent (Tim Roth; Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs). As the bodies pile up, Martha needs to decide whether to flee or join in the mayhem.
My Take on the Movie
This was a good movie with a number of unexpected twists and turns. The nice thing about the movie was that you get to see these actors in roles that they typically do not play within. The movie does have violence, so it is definitely not a family film, but if you are looking for a movie that will show you how even being a bit psycho can be affable and lovable too. If you are a fan of action/spy genre films this fits into it as well. While the humor in this is there it is a bit darker. There are some warmer moments between Kendrick and Rockwell too and in the end you will see why the two of them are perfect for one another!
