Reunions can be brutal.
Especially if you’re a world-weary assassin mixing business with pleasure, as John Cusack does in this often-hilarious dark comedy.
Back at his old school, which he fled on Prom night, our hit man is stalking a target, while also reconnecting with his former girlfriend, played with great charm by Minnie Driver.
Forced to question his battle-hardened worldview, shaped by stints with the CIA and as a freelance contract killer, Cusack dodges bullets and commitment with equal aplomb.
Backed by a killer supporting cast, the conflicted antihero is light on his feet and lethal with the one-liners.
