A quite watchable film, based on a pulp fiction book. Armand aka 'Blackbird' used to be one of Mafia's hitmen. Now he wants to retire but after finishing his last job, he interferes at the personal matters of the big boss who now wants him dead. He will meet Richie Nix, an arrogant and ambitious thief who wants to be teached the tricks of crime business. Soon they got more troubles as Nix unsuccessfully tries to blackmail a real estate agent. Now police chase them and Armand also finds new targets to eliminate at the faces of Carmen Colson and her ironworker husband Wayne who witnessed the incident. As they placed in the Federal Witness Protection, they will find also a shelter that help them to reconsider the problems that leaded them to break apart. Mickey Rourke's delivers an interesting performance and the direction that sometimes flaws, finally keeps you satisfied.
