My reaction
Synopsis: two hitmen are on a forced vacation in Belgium
How I saw it: on video, twice (have on DVD), most recently yesterday
Concept: Great.

Characters: Great.
Dialog: Great.
Pacing: Great.
Cinematography: Great.

Subjective Rating: 9/10 (One of my favorites). I don’t know what I can say about this movie without being misleading. That synopsis above? No, no good, doesn’t give you any idea what to expect. Just watch it.
