Storyline:
A short 30-minute film from the director of MOON (2009) found among thebonus material on the latter's Special Edition DVD from Sony; a bitslow to start as it depicts the dreary off-hours of anultra-technological hit-man but the viewer's interest is elevated oncehe becomes 'involved' in the life of one of his victims. Again, hardlyan original concept in itself, but what is interesting here is the factthat the hit-man's wife is not only fully cognizant of her hubby's dayjob but she is also the cold-blooded contact with his bosses when theconscience crisis sets in! I do not know if it was intentional or notbut I found the preposterous nature of the killings the hit-man usesa bulky contraption in his balcony to shoot his intended victims overgreat distances! to be quite amusing (while also turning the filminto borderline sci-fi territory).
