Storyline

Asher (Ron Perlman) is a contract killer who's spent the better part of his life ending other lives, taking orders from Avi (Richard Dreyfuss). He lives a lonely existence, making friends out of fine wine and good food, resenting his apprentice, Uzi (Peter Facinelli), who's taking jobs from him due to youth. When Avi hands Asher three contracts for a revenge scheme, the hitman takes the job, only to lose consciousness due to health issues, making accidental contact with Sophie (Famke Janssen), a ballet teacher distraught over mother Dora (Jacqueline Bisset), who's losing her battle with dementia. Asher and Sophie make a connection, embarking on a tentative courtship where the murderer can't share anything about his life. As the pair work out their flirtations, Asher is forced to pair with Uzi on a group hit, and when that goes bad for a moment, the veteran soon becomes marked for death, threatening all the good that's come into his world.

Very Enjoyble
24 January 2019 | by itsbobrSee all my reviews

Aging Hitman Asher (Ron Perlman) usually works alone, but agrees to a team hit that goes wrong and this marks him for elimination. We never find out who the new group is, but Asher's handler Avi (Richard Dreyfuss) makes a deal with them and to terminate Asher. Now Asher has to protect his love interest Sophie (Framke Jansssen) because that new group is also targeting her. Oh, oh!

Well, he's not Jason Bourne, Agent 47,or John Wick, but he's good and new on the scene and I am sure we will see more Asher movies.

This was more than pretty good. Very enjoyable and we see that Asher has his finger on every pulse and can be trusted to perform. He did have a blackout early on when he was about to off someone in an apartment, but Sophie opened her door as he lay on the floor. And yes, he did come back to finish that muffed job. So now you know how he met Sophie and it is here he ends up breaking one of his rules to not get involved with anyone. (You love it when a hitman breaks his rules, right?) So true.

Notables: Jacqueline Bisset as Dora, Sophie's mother who has dementia; Peter Facinelli as Uzi, a hitman that Asher trained back in the day and is now taking jobs away from Asher; Marta Milans as Marina, who helps Asher with a hit from time to time; Blake Periman as Hannah, Uzi's wife; Ned Eisenberg as Abram, the dry cleaner who gives Asher the envelope for the next hit.

The acting all around is first rate and I am sure we will see more Asher movies unless a noise in the last scene that Asher heard laying in bed next to Sophie was not a deer in the woods. Hmmmmmm..... HA! (7/10)

Violence; Yes. Sex: No. Nudity: No. Humor: No. Language: One F-bomb by Sophie. Rating: B
