Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

This ambitious but gloomy existential thriller never really shakes off its stage origins (Kenneth Pressman adapted his own play Insider's Price) despite an impressive cast. Forest Whitaker plays a world-weary assassin who has an attack of conscience when he is hired to kill Sherilyn Fenn and her Aids-afflicted child. The performances, including cameos from Seymour Cassel, Sharon Stone and James Belushi, are impressively low-key, but it's just a little too talky and static for its own good.
