Not a good JOB
5 April 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I have to agree with Nadine. The storyline is jumpy and none of the characters really get a chance to define themselves. Its very far fetched due to that. Additionally the whole script is weak - we never find the motives (apart from the obvious ones surrounding pregnancy). So we are left with a series of B-movie cameo's, jumpy editing - poor storyline with characters who are so hollow ...... CJ just doesn't act the part, she finds her hits without any build up - a few edited shots of money changing hands (just like in the 50's). She drinks, she has some kind of teenage angst over her job, and she does doesn't build credibility. She is a sterile character - some butch girl in a cycle of self hate and looking for Mr Goodbar encounters. And of course all because her mother was a hooker. The flashbacks are not really merged with the story. The main "hit target" characters are also shallow - they never have a chance build their parts above comic strip lowlife's looking for a way out. The major bad guy, the "hood" employer is so stereotyped - why does he pick her? and why does he wait so long for her to screw up?. Why is he talking like that ? I think it was a budget -` budget movie' - as far as I can see there is only dialogue from 5-6 people, only 3 to 4 sets, a poor soundtrack and a lot of bad shooting .. Shame I was looking forward to this but its a thumbs down from me ..
