It may not be G.B.H. or Sudden Fury, but what is, really? RJ Cusyk's second film proves to be an improvement on his mildly entertaining Giallo-esque thriller Through the Devil's Eyes. A Final Hit follows a retired hit man who is pulled back into the line of duty in an effort to provide for his struggling family. Just when he thought he was out, they keep pulling' him back in, amirite? The film isn't particularly action heavy, and as such it's pacing is plodding and flaggy, but it's filled with fun details that manage to make it worth the slog. The acting is also above par for such a low-budget film, although it's not averse to cheesy lines or flat emotions. Cinephiles might also entertain themselves by playing "spot the reference", as the film has it's share of them, the most obvious being a fairly entertaining nod to Sergio Leone (of all people).
In the end, it's all in good fun.
