Tim Roth plays a hit man on his final job before his daughter gets
married. Adam (Jack O'Connell) is an annoying 19 year old who
accidentally discovers that his step father is more depraved than he
thought. After crashing his step father's Mercedes, he is in his debt
and he is given a job as a driver to pay him back. His contact is Roy
(Tim Roth) and they go on Roy's last hit together. Wanting to be part
of the gangster culture, Adam asks to be more than just a driver and
things start to go wrong, especially when 'the girl' gets involved.
The film is quite light hearted, considering its content and, at times is comical. Both lead actors play their parts quite well and create an enjoyable partnership. The storyline is a little week and everything that can go wrong, does goes wrong. I found myself rooting for Adam in the end and, despite being a professional killer, Roth's character is quite appealing.
Overall, a mediocre film that I will not watch again but it was reasonably enjoyable, light hearted and funny in places.
When 19-year-old Adam agrees to do a day's driving for his mum's gangster boyfriend Peter, it takes him on a 24-hour journey into a nightmarish world of murder, sex trafficking and revenge, in the company of aging hit man Roy.
