The Hit List
Have you ever wished you had the chance to get revenge on everyone who’s done you wrong? For Allan Campbell this wish has suddenly become a reality when a stranger and he create a hit list during a night of drunken frivolity. The next day, realizing his bad decisions, Allan must race to save those he marked for assassination.
If the film sounds exciting, you should know that it is. However, for all that The Hit List does right, it falters just the same. From the cheap-looking special effects to the hideous dialogue and all too cliché ending, the film had the opportunity to be great, but failed to capitalize on any of its possibilities.
Starring Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr. and Cole Hauser, the film utilizes its talent as best it can. But when it comes to entertainment, the production value and story don't live up to the hype. Granted the premise was interesting, but it didn't merit a ninety minute feature film; at least not without adequate character development. Remove some of the language and a shot or two of violence and The Hit List would have made a great 'movie of the week.' As it stands now, it is at best a mediocre Blu-Ray release.
