Unquestionably a slick piece of goods. The training and experience of Wong and his crew --- culled largely from such action series as "La Femme Nikita" and "Once a Thief" --- keep the film lively and vivid. Full Review

It's tempting to brand the film anti-Semitic, but it's so utterly pointless it lacks even that distinction. Full Review

That rarest of all genre hybrids, the screwball-romantic-action-situation-black comedy. Rare for good reason. Who'd want to see a thing like that? Full Review

This movie isn't afraid of venturing into the realm of bad taste -- in fact, it revels in it. Full Review

Mark Wahlberg could lose some of the good will he generated from his performance in "Boogie Nights" by playing an idiotically gentle killer for hire in The Big Hit. [24 April 1998, p. 53] Full Review
