Two hitmen are sent to bring a gangster back from Spain, but things don’t quite go to plan.
Dir Stephen Frears
With John Hurt, Tim Roth, Laura del Sol, Terence Stamp
Hurt plays Braddock, the older of two hitmen sent to bring gangster-turned-grass Willie Parker (Stamp) back to the UK from Spain. Braddock is every bit the brutal professional but his apprentice Myron (Roth) still has a way to go. The journey home is fraught with twists and turns as they end up unwittingly kidnapping a Spanish woman who threatens to disrupt the job.
