I do not understand how people can downgrade this movie so badly, the acting is great, the story is excellent, one of the best I've seen in the past 12months and the movie itself is also way better than the most movies coming around on a daily basis. Sadly its not a high budget movie, so the common public would become aware of it, but downgrading something like that is pretty sad. If that is a 2 or 3, then the grading rates should go in the future down to minus 10 at least, because there are a lot of worse movies out there!Its the same with another Cuba Gooding movie, Sacrifice, its also <more>
way better than the reviews show, but thats is a different subject. Maybe he is not so liked anymore...:- To me The Hit List is a good 7-8...not a 10 except the story itself , but in regards of the downgrading, I upgrade it a bit. The story of the movie is simple, be careful what you wish for, even when you are drunk...because sometimes wishes come true! More I do not want to spoil. Conclusion: absolutely worth the time watching and money as well...! I do not write many reviews here, only when I see that a movie is so badly discredited like this one!
The Hit List Good ole American Fun... (by Right-Wing-Man)
The Hit List is good ole American fun. I am not sure why at this point the rating is 1.9, for e that is just simply retarded. The movie was from a couple of interesting POVs. On the one hand you have a CIA I assume Hit-man that gets cancer and loses his mind. The Protagonist is a total softy Cole Hauser, and the antagonist Gooding Jr., picks him out to help kill him... what he is really doing is helping Cole's character grow some below if you know what I'm saying. The story was action packed and engaging... both Cole and Cuba were great in this film and I was thoroughly entertained. <more>
All of the actors for that matter, played believable characters. Thanks to all involved in this one, it was a good movie :
I enjoyed the movie. Other reviewers mentioned that Cuba Gooding appeared bored during this movie. I liked the premise and the acting. Everyone did an very good job in their roles. I would recommend it to those that enjoy an action flick with an unusual story line. It held my attention and the ending was an emotional moment given all that I had learned about the characters during the course of the movie. Cuba Gooding was outstanding and did a real interpretation of the character that he was portraying.I was pleasantly surprised with the entire movie and would tell all my friends to rent it.
Excellent (by encejen78)
Avid viewers of direct to DVD action films, particularly those starring cuba gooding, jr., must often wonder why they continue watching these low budget films when most of them prove to be either terrible like 'Lies and Illusions' or simply mediocre and nothing to write home about like 'Linewatch' or the recent 'Sacrifice' . I suppose the reason is because you occasionally get a 'Wrong Turn at Tahoe' or, now, 'The Hit List.' While difficult to compare to a larger budgeted feature such as the similar 'Collateral,' as far as DVD action <more>
thrillers go, 'The Hit List,' barring a few issues, is a masterpiece when compared to its brethren. For starters, it boasts a high concept, two well fleshed out and well acted leads cuba gooding and cole hauser, both playing mostly against type , and a thrilling, well paced plot. Well, mostly, as the opening scenes don't bode well for the following movie, what with a lame james bond animated title sequence that sets the wrong tone and a series of awkward scenes involving cole hauser's character and his otherwise relatable woes. While it might threaten 'Lies and Illusions' all over again, the meeting of cuba's jonas and cole's alan finally promises good things, and the movie then delivers in full. In essence, keep watching, folks, because things are only stodgy for a few minutes.Though an action thriller at heart, 'The Hit List' may make you ask some disturbing questions about yourself and your own enemies in life. Who would be on your hit list indeed? And cuba's portrayal of a dark angel that once unleashed can only be stopped by violent means marks the actor's turn to the dark side as one worth waiting for - we won't count his villainous turn in 'Lies and Illusions,' which was mostly played for hijinks.Fans of cuba, cole, and direct to DVD movies, I recommend. It's a diamond in the rough.
I don't think it's a spoiler to say this film has a great deal to do with Collateral. Unfortunately, I think that perhaps the distributors also felt the same way, to the point of rejecting the film for fear of some kind of backlash. Although superficially it does share much with Collateral, it goes its own way, and has its own conclusion. And it's a good one. It may not be the most high- budget movie, and it may not be the best edited movie, but it does deliver better than most efforts seen lately, even in the big-budget category. Cuba may have a new career here as an Ice-T <more>
reminiscent bad-ass. Worth a matinée ticket.For what it is, 8/10.
I really don"t know why some people are giving bad reviews to this movie. Cuba hasn"t been this bad ass in years! of course he is the deranged hit man who doesn"t care anymore if he lives or dies. that can be extremely liberating. if you do not fear your own death then what else is there to fear? people spend their whole lives trying to out run death and in the end it gets us all anyway! that is why suicide bombers are so difficult to stop. Cuba was very convincing in his role but Cole Hauser was such a wimp that i was hoping Cuba would shoot him in the head and put us out of <more>
his misery. anyway, i could use my own personal hit man because there are a few people i would like eliminated. just a fantasy, right? lots of action and the suspense builds slowly till the terminator like ending where just about everyone gets wiped out. two thumbs up for this one. you won"t be disappointed. Cuba is bad ass! did you notice how much Cuba looks like a ghetto thug on the DVD cover? that is a good look for him!
If you happen to notice a lot of senseless killing in this movie then you haven't missed the point. Solid acting by Cuba and the rest of the cast. This is a premise i personally haven't seen before, and I thought well done. I and the people I was watching the movie with were glued to the screen. Cuba emanated a aura of danger and a love of killing that came across very well. There was a scene that was too reminiscent of terminator, and I was surprised they dared to go that route, but it was also quite gripping. I think this dark role is a good one for Cuba. He needed to do something <more>
shocking to remind us he's still around The female lead is hot. I would love to see more of her.
