The Corny Last Scene Spoils a Good Film
Carol Jean “CJ” March (Daryl Hannah) is a professional killer that works to the mobster Vernon Cray (Alex Rocco). CJ fails in her last work for Vernon, when she kills a man to retrieve half-million dollars in drugs, but she realizes that his briefcase that is empty was switched by another man. CJ hunts the man down to finish her job and discovers his name, Roger Washington (Shawn Woods), and address. Meanwhile Roger is murdered by the punk Troy Riverside (Brad Renfro) that wants to sell the drugs to move to Arizona with his pregnant girlfriend Emily “Em” Robin (Dominique Swain). CJ, who is the daughter of a prostitute and orphan since she was seven, finds that she is pregnant and she tries to have an abortion in a clinic. Then she goes to a bar to get drunken and laid and she meets the former priest Rick (Eric Mabius) that gets closer to her. When CJ finds Roger murdered, she seeks out Troy and finds Emily. However she is not capable to kill her because Emily is pregnant. Will CJ finish her last job?
“The Job” is an action movie with a dramatic story with a promising beginning. CJ is very well developed and consistent in the beginning as a cold-blood killer with a traumatic childhood. When she finds that she is pregnant, she wants to abort the baby keeping the consistence of the character. However after meeting Rick and Emily, the story becomes corny but the plot is still acceptable since pregnancy makes women more sensitive and fragile. Therefore it is still possible to swallow the changing of CJ’s character. However the corny last scene is incoherent and spoils what could have been a good film. My vote is five.
Title (Brazil): “Assassina por Natureza” (“Killer by Nature”)
Uncharateristically, a raw, dramatic assassin film
17 October 2017. It’s really hard to rate this movie because most of all, it’s not possible to really determine fact from exaggeration when it comes to real assassins considering all the stylistic, fictional and dramatic interpretations presented on film. The fight scenes are often choreographed in meticulous detail to ensure nobody actually gets hurt, there are use of stunt men, and a lot of scenes are edited together so that such assassination events are contrived and stitched together to seem like one continuous event. Such is likely to be the fantasy of action thrillers that have by now permeated throughout the filmgoing audience. But what happens, if the real deal might be depicted, how would anyone except those in the covert, special services know? Nevertheless, we have Daryl Hannah’s depiction of an assassin who herself isn’t in the best of physical health and so how are we to look at her performance? And her performance is actually divided up into both her physical action storyline and her dramatic relational and flashback storyline.
In the first place, Daryl Hannah comes off really strong in this distinctive assassin movie. She apparently isn’t perfect and she doesn’t go around with martial art skills. She’s the product of a rough childhood. And she answers to a coolly sadistic employer who stands out for his bipolar-like demeanor. Alex Rocco who plays the nasty Vernon Cray wants his million dollars’ worth of drugs back and the man responsible dead. He is even more sinister just because of his exacting performance that is underplayed. One is reminded of Brian Cox’s performance as Hannibal Lector in Manhunter (1986) where he is a quiet but menacing figure. As a conflicted individual, Daryl’s character can’t be relied to be completely professional.
At the same time, a second plot line is occurring about a couple who are attempting to score on a drug deal. The young man’s female smoking companion is pregnant. Their portrayal of a young couple and their dialogue are hard-hitting and almost visceral in their back and forth love-hate relationship. It’s not hard to imagine that their experience is that much different from real world couples who are living on the edge. One is reminded of a more stylish performance from Viggo Mortenson and Maria Bello in A History of Violence (2005) that was released two years later, along with the sinister Richard Harris.
One would be hard pressed to discover another assassin movie that portrays its assassin as in The Job. One could point, maybe, to Colin Farrell in In Bruges (2008), George Clooney in The American (2010), even the satirical performance of Pierce Brosnan in The Matador (2005) or his more drama-driven performance in The Tailor in Panama (2001) as examples. All male characters by the way. Daryl Hannah is no Geena Davis in her typical assassin performance in The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996). One might have to go back to Diane Keaton’s performance in The Little Drummer Girl (1984) to obtain some flavor of Daryl’s character’s presentation.
As a movie, this assassin movie offers up a different type of action-thriller genre movie, incorporating a strong extended relational focus often missing in male assassin movies. Even The Bourne Identity (2002) stayed more with the couple’s interaction with the us versus them mentality instead of what was necessarily going on between them, except for brief scenes that appear to be more incidental to the movie. Even babies are another unusual focus in this movie’s plot, as two women who are key players here, such a theme would be a consistent one, but not normal one, to incorporate into overall theme of a movie. The photography, the sound effects, the set designs, and editing and pacing are all on par with good movies. The action is never over the top nor are there special effects really called for or even necessarily needed here. This movie remains true to its more authentic portrayal of physical action and continues to balance screen time with emotive and ethical drama. One could argue that the very last brief scene was a typical American add on that industrial production companies might have insisted on. Nevertheless, the movie mostly depicts the cycle of existential angst that pervades over much of the downtrodden and mentally and physically abused dregs of society. In short, this movie has something important to reveal and experience.
