Mal's (Kris Salvi) is a cold blooded assassin - not so much because
he's a bad person, he's just good at his job ... and then he meets lovely
Mary (Marie Kottenstette) and the two fall in love almost instantly. And
it's not long before he gets her pregnant, and once she has the baby she
pretty much forces him to quit his job and become a mailman ...
Ford (Marc Powers) is the cop on Mal's trail, but ever since the
"suicide" of this 18 months of son he's not the same anymore, so
much so that he shows suicidal tendencies himself - and would have
probably gone through with it if it wasn't for his partner (Dustin
Teuber). Things get so bad that his wife, above-mentioned Mary, runs away
to hook up with Mal in the first place ...
Eventually, Mal, as a
mailman, delivers a parcel containing a gun to Detective Ford - and that
encounter triggers something in both men ...
Ok, the ending of
this is dark, maybe a bit too dark for a general audience, and while the
mid-credits scene puts a fun punchline on it, it doesn't completely
neutralize the impact. But that said, that's also completely besides the
point as the film is never asking to be taken seriously, it's basically
just a very tongue-in-cheek of standard cop movie and thriller mainstays
driven by (intentionally) very clichéed dialogue, hammed up by a cast
clearly in on the joke, and if you're even vaguely aware of the genre,
you'll quite probably be unable not to laugh at or with the movie, it's
just that on point in both writing and delivery, making this just under
forty minutes really well spent!
