"Intent to Kill" is a really good suspense film which was made in Canada and has a very international cast. It is set at a hospital and a South American president (Herbert Lom) is scheduled to have some delicate brain surgery. However, somebody wants him dead and they've recruited a group of gangsters to make sure he doesn't leave the hospital alive. They make one attempt...and end up killing the wrong patient! But they are a very persistent and bloodthirsty lot and they won't stop until he's dead or they're all dead instead.
The film works well because the writing was excellent and the director did a nice job of keeping the tension mounting. The ending, in particular, was very exciting and well worth the wait.
