Goofs

When Sanaa tells her story and they show her shooting a guy in a jeep, her sniper rifle doesn't even twitch. Such a weapon would have significant, visible recoil and a heavy shock to her shoulder when firing an actual bullet. See more »

Funny in places
5 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

Firstly if you are a fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger then be warned that as others have said, although the film suggests that Arnold Schwarzenegger is a star in it, there is a suggestion of his presence throughout but in reality he is on screen only for the last 20mins or so.

The film tells the story of a odd collection of hit men (and hit women) who get together to kill Gunther (Arnold Schwarzenegger), another hit man.

A documentary crew follow the odd squad as they try and kill Gunther. However he is always one step ahead of them, kills them one by one but they never get to see him.

It is laugh out loud funny in places. Other jokes miss the spot. The ending is very clever. Arnold Schwarzenegger looks odd in it. I think they were trying to make him look younger.

It is also nice to see Hannah Simone playing something other than a model. Her over protective but supportive father is one of the funniest themes in the film.

The whole documentary crew footage being the film struggles in places. Especially in the big shoot out in Gunther's house where for various reasons you are supposedly left with no cameramen but footage is still filmed.

Overall though it is an amusing film but could have been done better.
