In an intermittently engaging leftfield love story,
Anna Kendrick stars as quirky, let-down and put-upon Martha, who thinks she's finally met the man of her dreams in silver-tongued, twinkly-eyed Francis (Sam Rockwell). Except he's really a hired killer trying to stay one step ahead of a fellow assassin and former colleague (Tim Roth), tasked by a crime cartel to snuff out her beau and anyone else who gets in their way. Director Paco Cabezas and writer Max Landis (
) flaunt their influences a little too brazenly, notably the unlikely lovers scenario of
Out of Sight
and the hitman rom-com japes of
Grosse Pointe Blank
, but fall short in terms of both films' zest and style. Ultimately it's a generic exercise, what a few years ago would have been pegged as "sub-Tarantino", where the level of violence seems disproportionate to the intended cuteness of the storyline. Kendrick is a passable heroine doing her best with an underwritten role, so it's left to Rockwell's easy manner and raffish charm to shoulder the heavy lifting.
A woman falls for what she thinks is an ideal guy, but he turns out to be a hitman on the run from the crime cartels who employ him. Action comedy, starring Anna Kendrick, Sam Rockwell and Tim Roth.
