Movie Summary

Director:
Stephen Frears
Released:
1984
Rating:
R
The Hit is the 1984 cult crime thriller directed by celebrated filmmaker Stephen Frears (The Queen,High Fidelity, Dangerous Liasons, Dirty Pretty Things). The film begins with two criminals Braddock (John Hurt, Alien, Hellboy, The Elephant Man) and Myron (Tim Roth, Reservoir Dogs, Planet of the Apes, Funny Games, The Incredible Hulk) taking gangster Willie Parker (Terence Stamp, Superman II, The Limey) back to meet his maker for what he did. But there's more to the tale: they stop off at another mate's flat in Madrid and they take his girl (Laura Del Sol), an innocent, as collateral when they get across the border, and from there it's about what Braddock will or won't do, how Myron as the young, energetic upstart could possibly stop Braddock from his path of destruction, and how a weary detective (Fernando Rey, who has not a line of dialog) follows along the trail of violence and bloodshed.
