Mickey was one of my favorite actors in Body Heat, Barfly, and Angel Heart. Then he disappeared and went into boxing where he was battered and came back much paunchier and old in the great film, the Wrestler, seemingly playing himself as the two-bit wrestler (although he got battered as a boxer in real life).

He is the real star of this movie - its one of those not too serious movies from the writings of Elmore Leonard. He could be back. He saves this movie from being nothing much. Joseph Gordon-Levitt really expands his body of work with this one.

Killshot is a standard thriller. It's far from being a masterpiece, but it's not an utter travesty. Rourke and Lane give solid performances, but Gordon-Levitt becomes extremely annoying at an alarming rate. I'm sure the director's intent is for his character to aggravate the audience to no extent, but damn... The plot doesn't explore uncharted territory, but it isn't completely trite either. It's not a movie I'll recommend, and I won't steer potential viewers away from it.

Okay acting. Kind of a forgettable plot.

I really liked this movie. Gordon-Levitt was especially interesting in his character. Very entertaining.

Good – Killshot (2008) 95 min. The film has been cursed with numerous re-shoots and casting changes. Despite the production urban legends, the film remains entertaining with likeable characters including Diane Lane, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mickey Rourke, and Thomas Jane. The story revolves around two baddies, Rourke and Gordon-Levitt chasing down Lane and Thomas Jane, who have been placed in the Federal Witness Protection program.

OPL...you've got 4 copies of the 2009 version of the book on order - that this movie is adapted from - plus you already have one copy of the 1989 edition of the same book...
Why not even one copy of this dvd movie - starring Thomas Jane, Mickey Rourke, Diane Lane and Rosario Dawson???

- "Film is the literature of this Generation"!
