The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Silent. Relentless. No attachments. This is Viktor’s code. The mantra that took him from the slums of Romania to the pinnacle of his profession – as a murderer for hire. Viktor knows the value of life more than most, which makes him the perfect killer. But after a ruthless betrayal by his bosses, he escapes to London, joins a new “family,” and finds himself caught in a vicious underworld power struggle. Viktor is now better, faster and more ruthless than ever before, but an encounter with a dark beauty offers him a chance at new life. But can he ever hope to escape the ghosts- and buried secrets – of his past?
Viktor, a man for hire has decided to finally tell his story to a filmmaker. Viktor wants to just come clean and tell his story once and for all and the aging filmmaker is looking for a story that will give him one last shot at stardom. Viktor tells his story in full detail, from when he was first discovered as a young boy all the way to present day. As you watch the film you get the impression that Viktor is leaving no stone unturned but there are a few surprises along the way as well. To talk plot too much would only ruin some of the surprise that awit you along the way so I am not going to go any deeper here.
First time Writer/Director, Perry Bhandal does a terrific job telling Viktor's story in a way that engages the audience and it has you constantly wanting more. He also gets the most out of his cast, Luke Goss is as expected as Viktor, He gives a powerful and believable performance. The rest of the cast is made up of unknowns but everyone does a terrific job playing their roles.
Like any film this one isn't perfect, the story could of used a little TLC but for the most part it is a solid effort that keeps you thinking, interested and entertained. Considering the film's story-telling style I don't think it will be a film for everyone. If you say the word "Hitman" you normally think of a film that is action packed. This isn't one of those films, "Interview With a Hitman" is instead a more personal look at a natural born killer who has seen and lived it all who just wants to get it all off his chest. So if you're expecting loads of action and explosions I recommend looking elsewhere but if you're looking for something a bit different or if you're a fan of Independent cinema then I think this is a film for you. You get a little bit of everything here, action, suspense and plenty of drama making this a unique and enjoyable film.
