Entertainment Weekly - 05/08/1998
"...It's like a hyped-up Bruce or Arnold thriller directed by the Coen brothers for Troma Films....It may be some sort of junk landmark: the first studio thriller that's all guilty pleasure."
Mel (Mark Wahlberg) is a neurotic, overworked hit man working for two crime bosses--Cisco (Lou Diamond Phillips) and Paris (Avery Brooks). He has a demanding fiance (Christina Applegate) with parents he's trying to impress and a gold-digging mistress (Lela Rochon) to occupy his scarce free time. Cisco proposes that stressed-out Mel kidnap Keiko (China Chow), the young daughter of Jiro Nishi, a wealthy Japanese industrialist. Mel captures her, but unfortunately Cisco is unaware that she is the goddaughter of Paris, who promptly puts a separate crew out to find and destroy Keiko's captors---and Paris is unaware that Mel is the man they are looking for. This unique and violent blend of action and comedy was executive produced by John Woo
