Film Review - Hit Man


Richard Linklater has always been a quality filmmaker. He’s made a few duds over the last 30 years (including an ill-conceived “Bad News Bears” remake), but he’s always invested in the work, trying to find his way through characters and stories, enjoying creative challenges while celebrating with his influences.
