Not usually a fan of this genre but...

I usually don't go for hitman movies, but Fast Charlie was a pleasant surprise. Pierce Brosnan as Charlie had this laid-back yet intense vibe that worked well for the character. The film's setting in the South gave it a unique flavor, different from the usual city-based crime thrillers. What I really appreciated was the subplot with Marcie, played by Morena Baccarin. Their relationship felt real, not forced like in some other movies in this genre. And James Caan still had that screen presence that made him a in his final role. The film had some typical action sequences, sure, but they were well-executed. It's not just about the action though; the story had depth, especially with Charlie contemplating and aspiring towards a a different life. Definitely worth a watch.

Disappointing

Fast Charlie, featuring Pierce Brosnan, aims for action and mystery but falls short. Despite its title, the movie's pace disappoints, lacking the expected swiftness. Brosnan, once a formidable action star, now feels out of sync. The lackluster action scenes and unconvincing performances from the entire cast contribute to an overall underwhelming experience. No actor manages to bring authenticity. Even in the cinematic setting, the movie fails to evoke the anticipated excitement. Awarding it a generous 5 out of 10, the film misses opportunities for a more engaging storyline and dynamic action, leaving viewers craving a more compelling cinematic journey.

Embracing Genre Tropes

What sets this film apart is its embrace of well-trodden genre tropes, turning them into an engaging Southern thriller set in the grittier parts of Biloxi, Mississippi and New Orleans, Louisiana. The movie's charm lies in its acknowledgment of familiar storylines while presenting them in a way that feels both comfortable and exciting. Brosnan's portrayal of Charlie is particularly noteworthy. He captures the essence of a man grappling with the decision to leave his dangerous life behind. His performance is filled with nuances that make Charlie more than just a typical hitman; he's a character with depth and relatable human conflicts. Every time this film got too emotional or to heavy, it was lightened with a well timed laugh and all of that was split up by really inventive action scenes. Some films are greater than the sum of their parts. This one certainly is.
