When Martha wakes up to find a letter and a necklace on the pillow next to her (at ~00:23:40), the overhead shot shows the necklace spread out but in the close-up the necklace is tightly arranged. See more »


Hopper: [about Francis] We think he developed a kind of moral code. He's still notorious. People still try to hire him, but now he kills them.
Sophie: He kills the people who hire him?
Hopper: Yeah. Because murder is wrong.
Sophie: That's insane.
Hopper: I would say that's a reasonable diagnosis, yes.

User Reviews

Its funny with the most awkward way .Loved it
14 April 2016 | by freego1See all my reviews

I read some reviews saying this is "shallow"?! not funny and a bunch of other absurd stuff like that. I mean seriously what depth exactly did you expect from such film?.. Enough with the sofa "experts" saying whatever they read somewhere else and actually review this..

This film is entertaining with a really unique way, (i wont deny that the humor is really not for everyone) They create all sort of weird situations that make you laugh with the fact that they even happening like that.

It also includes some fighting scenes that are actually really good with nice choreography. The plot has no holes in it, and i mean none,everything is covered just fine.

grab some popcorn relax and you will have fun while it lasts. i would recommend it.
