Elevator Pitch Whe a retired assassin’s daughter is kidnapped he is forced to revisit New Orleans, his old area of operations, to rescue her. He is able to call on the help of old friends and must face possible retribution from his old enemies, and it turns out that rescuing his daughter is not his most difficult problem.
Content Some driving across country and hiding in cheap hotels with his daughter’s friend (who must be pretty smelly by the end because she never seems to take a shower). Some hand to hand combat, and a lot of shooting with a variety of firearms. No sex or nudity even in a brothel.
A View I thought that this started off OK, probably because the interaction between the assassin and his daughter’s friend is quite well done, but as we get to the third act it turns into a routine shootout. Only reviewed by 9 critics and achieved a score of 0% on Rotten Tomatoes.
