The motion picture itself is interesting and the action is supported well by the spanish landscape. I am positively suprised to catch the philosophical point of the story. Despite of his spiritual studies and contemplation poor Willie the Mouth cannot stand tall in the end when looking the death from eye to eye. It is said that only an animal can face the death without any fear. Well, Mr Braddock the bad guy of this movie, does a professional performance to show the last card to his victim. The acts of the death are both heroic and anti-heroic and that should give an emotional kick and various thought to the spectators.
The plot is simple: A couple of hit men are driving a mob informer to his place of execution. During the trip, tensions arise. What makes this film a beauty, beyond Stephen Frears exuberant, coming-into-his-own direction, is the brilliant casting.
John Hurt is a lean, grizzled grim reaper behind a pair of shades. Every word he speaks radiates pure death, and his flat gaze marks whoever it falls upon. Hurt, who has tremendous range as an actor, slips into the role of the killer "Mr. Braddock" with a still, icy ease. I have enjoyed Hurt's work for a long time, and I really think he is one of the best character actors in the world. Tim Roth plays Braddock's young sidekick with a combination of cockney attitude and simmering venom. This was Roth's first movie role, and it is all the more remarkable for that reason. Roth is another remarkable craftsman, able to simply dwell in a roll. In an interesting bit of trivia, Hurt and Roth would team up again a decade later in the excellent historical drama, Rob Roy, playing characters in the same kind of deadly symbiotic relationship. These two actors play off one another with expert ease, one the older master (Hurt) and the other the barely controlled apprentice (Roth).
The last piece of the acting puzzle is Terrance Stamp, who has had about as strong a mid to late career as an actor could hope for. He has aged very well, his features hardening into lean stone, much like Clint Eastwood. Stamp plays the mob informer that is going to be hit, and through some amazing acting he is able to portray a kind of transcendental peace that is truly moving.
The format for this DVD edition is, to say the least, a disappointment. The viewing public seems to be far more educated these days than studios and DVD packagers seem to realize. All buyers really want is the widescreen edition anymore and are willing to pay more for it. Hasn't that become obvious? Regardless of the poor production of this DVD, this is still a film worth having and I still recommend it. -Mykal Banta
A pair of hit men, Braddock, a wily veteran and Myron, a greenhorn, track down former gangster Willy Parker, who squealed on his former partners and has been hiding out in Spain for ten years. The hit men intend to take Willy to Paris to meet his former boss before he is summarily executed but an unexpected complication occurs that throws the plan into disarray. Attempting to alleviate the problem only causes it to snowball beyond belief and soon the two hit men are forced to take a hostage along the way. Willy's lackadaisical approach to his certain demise displeases his "escorts" who expect him to be quite fearful of his impending doom. The hostage is a bit of puzzlement as well and Myron takes it upon himself to look after her interests. As events continue unfolding causing more chaos it isn't long before Myron is questioning Braddock's control of the situation.
To say anymore would be an unforgivable transgression; suffice it to say that 'The Hit' is a movie you won't regret having spent time watching. Besides being directed by Stephen Frears it also features Terence Stamp, John Hurt and Tim Roth - his film debut - in the three key roles. The screenplay allows for a few terrific action sequences, frequent suspense, laugh-out-loud humor and even some very memorable scenery in Spain. The theme music performed by Eric Clapton is among the best of his compositions and he gets an assist from Roger Waters of Pink Floyd fame. 'The Hit' is a movie deserving of cult status for its many offbeat touches and unconventional manner of storytelling. Do yourself a real favor and set aside some time to watch this film - but beware! You'll find that once isn't enough!
The Hit is a film directed by Stephen Frears, stars Terrence Stamp, John Hurt, Tim Roth and Laura del Sol. In a supporting role as the police chief is Fernando Rey, best known for his role in The French Connection.
The film is about a former gangster turned supergrass (British slang for an informer) Willie Parker, who tells all to the courts, and is sent to Spain to hide from the people he testified against. He is then located and captured by the gangsters and is being driven to France where he will be killed.
The film has some philosophical elements too. Parker's character tells his captors that he does not fear death, as it is inevitable for everybody and just another step in a long journey.
The film has some excellent flamenco music in the soundtrack and some other nice music in it also.
The special features on the DVD are a 1988 interview with Terence Stamp, a theatrical trailer and audio commentary by director, Stephen Frears, actors John Hurt and Tim Roth, writer Peter Prince, and editor Mick Audsley.
This is really a good film and has some great moments.
