Lynch (Gary Oldman), an emotionless bon-vivant hitman, stops a thief who stole a cell phone from Mimi (Elena Anaya) in a train station. Falling for her at first sight, he does not notice when she accidentally switches cell phones with him. She later gives Lynch's phone to her boyfriend Abe Klein (Andrew-Lee Potts) who works as a locksmith. When Lynch's employers try to assign Lynch another assassination over the phone, Abe and his pot-smoking slacker artist friend go to warn the victim, Mr. Fish (Terence Stamp in a regrettably short role), hoping for a reward. Concerned by Abe's behaviour over the phone, the employer has another operative, Virgil (Billy Zane), who does not know Lynch by sight, check up on him. The operative has a foreign killer, Dragan (Karel Roden), brought in to deal with "Lynch". All the while, Danny Devine (Robert Carlyle), a foul-tempered, foul-mouthed loan shark, is driving around trying to collect from various deadbeat clients including Abe.
The movie currently holds a 3/5 rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with 41% of members liking the movie.
