Rated R · 97 minutes · 2006

Drama, Suspense/Thriller
Faced with a midlife career change, suave Pierce Brosnan seems to have chosen wry self-mockery, reinventing himself as a scruffy, fallen James Bond surrogate with humorous potential. If he began his period of adjustment with The Thomas Crown Affair and After the Sunset, he presses on in Richard Shepard's black comedy. Here, Brosnan plays a drunken, unhappy hit man, inappropriately named Julian Noble, who, on the job in Mexico City, picks a square Denver businessman (Greg Kinnear) to help him serve his purposes. Their interplay is the movie's saving grace, although it loses momentum by act three. Forget the phony international intrigue: The best moment here is a vision of Brosnan, cocktail in hand, lurching across a hotel lobby wearing nothing more than a black Speedo and boots.
