A love story that revolves around the world of a professional hit man. John Cusack is great in this and his performance is the glue that holds the film together. The rest of the cast is equally as good especially his sister Joan Cusack, Minnie Driver, Dan Aykroyd, Jeremy Piven, Hank Azaria, K. Todd Freeman, Mitchell Ryan and Alan Arkin as the poor psychiatrist.
It also features a cameo appearance by Benny "The Jet" Urquidez, who was John Cusack's Kickboxer instructor and that's how he got the part.
The film has a great soundtrack and the somewhat over the top violence seems to blend in well in this film.
This film also has appearances by Ann Cusack and Bill Cusack, their other siblings. The first film appearance by Jenna Elfman and last film appearance by Barbara Harris.
