The Hit (1984) R Willie (Terence Stamp) is a former gangster thug who turned informant. He is trying to live peacefully tucked away in a Spanish village. The mob knows that he informed on them, and now two hit men (John Hurt, Tim Roth) have been sent to bring Willie back for some mobster justice. This is a fascinating film with three excellent performances. There is quite a bit of dry humor as the three gangsters try to one-up each other. The film is brilliant and a blast to watch Stamp on-screen in a role he was meant to play. My Rating: Full Price - See more at:

Not the usual crime drama. It's not too violent, or full of swears. It's just a simple road movie with criminals developing a complicated relationship. The story is unpredictable and refreshingly different.
