Costume design tells all!
14 August 2004 | by aristides-1See all my reviews

Rarely, almost never, does a botched costume tell you everything you have to know about a movie but in this self-described "low budget" film, one of the lead's costumes in fact is a warning signal. The so-called "professional ", "best there is" hit man (played by Scott Glen) is saddled, pun intended, with an ill-fitting suit that he wears throughout most of the movie. I've worked on low budget films in my career but when a director or producer saves money, not by serving pizza for meals instead of catering the

film, but stints on the leading man's suit, then you know you are in trouble. The suit looks like it came out of the bargain floor, discounted, one-size-fits-all, section of some low price emporium. It fits him like a glove; an oversized glove on a small person, let's say. Once a thing like this starts a movie then something as simple as the Scott Glen character acting "hired gun cool" becomes an item that causes smiles, if not laughter. (I must also mention the need for the

screenwriter to try and imitate the atrocious dialogue Tarantino has inflicted on movies and have the hit man, about to practice his trade, "talk" about it to the victim. Isn't it possible that these folks, in real life, just ........do it......and move on to their home life?
