Four hitmen from different backgrounds - the Foreigner (Michael Blain-Rozgay), the Indian (Jose Andrews), Blacky (Ernest Anthony) and redneck Whitey (Shane Woodson) - are hired by a top secret gouvernment agency (led by David Carradine and Michael Madsen) to take down the top drug suppliers of their state. But of course, as diverse as they are, they get into each other's hair even before the first hit - and when Whitey's mom (Sandy Kanan) shows up at their "top secret" hideout, that doesn't exactly calm things either. Things get worse when after their first hit they are left with two little girls, Katie (Carlie Westerman) and Becky (Michelle Capra), who were to be sold into prostitution. And while the others want to get rid of them as soon as possible, the Foreigner insists on keeping them to give them a good chance at least, and he's getting support from Whitey's mother, who hasn't got the least idea what's going on but who's got a big heart all the same. And it's when at another hit two children are blown up that the Foreigner's guilty conscience starts to take over.

Meanwhile, back at headquarters, the bosses of our four heroes get increasingly dissatisfied with how things develop and ultimately decide to take them out once they've finished their job - so one night while the Foreigner and Blacky are out, gunman storm their place and shoot dead everyone in sight, with only Katie surviving the deal, rather by accident. Upon being faced with this, the Foreigner decides to take away and adopt Katie - but he and Blacky also quickly come to the conclusion they've been sold out by their bosses, and they know if they ever want to move on, they have to take care of their superiors first, even if they're likely to be outgunned ...

 

What could have been your routine low budget shoot-em-up sold solely on the combined star power of David Carradine and Michael Madsen ... is actually a pretty original piece of film - sure, made on a moderate budget still, and both Carradine and Madsen only play supporting roles that do not make or break the movie. But what makes the movie is clever writing really, writing that plays against genre conventions, skillfully combines comedy with drama, and switches between the two pretty much at the drop of a hat if necessary. And a slick directorial effort really gets the most out of the script, only supported by a strong ensemble cast. A film that left little impression when first released, yet well worth a look.
