Ep. 69 - THE BIG HIT (1998)
< 1 day ago
This week, Gary's chosen what seems like a pretty random movie for us to talk about — but it's one that's about to celebrate its 20th anniversary — the 1998 hitman action comedy starring Mark Wahlberg and Lou Diamond Phillips... THE BIG HIT!
Synopsis: Affable hit man Melvin Smiley is constantly being scammed by his cutthroat colleagues in the life-ending business. So, when he and his fellow assassins kidnap the daughter of an electronics mogul, it’s naturally Melvin who takes the fall when their prime score turns sour. That’s because the girl is the goddaughter of the gang’s ruthless crime boss. But, even while dodging bullets, Melvin has to keep his real job secret from his unsuspecting fiancée, Pam.
THE BIG HIT — directed by HK cinema vet Kirk Wong — was a bit of a sleeper 20 years ago. But how does it hold up now?
