Gary Johnson is the most sought-after professional killer in New Orleans. To his clients, he is like something out of a movie: the mysterious gun for hire. But if you pay him to rub out a cheating spouse or an abusive boss, you’d better watch your back—he works for the cops. When he breaks protocol to help a desperate woman trying to flee an abusive boyfriend, he finds himself becoming one of his false personas, falling for the woman and flirting with turning into a criminal himself. (Venice International Film Festival)

English Richard Linklater is quite an unexplored director for me, his work has always passed me by, so I didn't have high expectations and I wasn't too impressed either. The action was non-existent, the humour minimal to nonexistent and the whole thing hinged on the likable duo of Glen Powell and the beautiful Adria Arjona, but I didn't find the plot engaging, imaginative or very interesting either. Too simple for me without any interesting plot twists. Just average. I'll forget it tomorrow. 5/10. ()

English The genre classification here raises expectations of a slightly different experience, but the resulting film is neither much action nor much comedy, so beware. That said, I was pleasantly surprised. An original idea, a nicely thought out script, hugely charismatic characters (Glen Powell has been on a really nice run). A very accessible film for the audience, and yet you can feel Richard Linklater's indie roots in every frame. PS: Coincidentally, I saw Hit Man on the same day as the Czech film Mr. and Mrs. Stodola, so it was an unplanned, dramaturgically very interesting double bill :D ()

English A clever, well thought out script with a message about the fear of changes in life. Great pacing, top-notch acting – the dialogue! – Glen Powell disappears into the role. The story builds beautifully and there is no action at all. A lovely romantic film, with which Richard Linklater fulfills the dream of a lot of overweight, bespectacled students of getting their chance to bed that Adria Arjona. And it will only cost them the loss of their own personality. ()
