      Jonathan Lethem Uncertain whether to aim for morbid satire or poignant character study, Hit Me hedges. Apr 24, 2003 Full Review Justine Elias Village Voice As the scam gets more complicated, and more deadly, Hit Me develops an unexpected emotional force. Apr 24, 2003 Full Review Lawrence Van Gelder New York Times A bleak, rewarding film noir. Rated: 4/5 Apr 24, 2003 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Shainebrg's film lacks genuine suspense, erotic charge, or intriguing characters. Rated: C Jul 6, 2011 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews The story works best as a spoiler pouring ice water over those who think they can rise above their stations in life. Rated: C+ May 12, 2003 Full Review Harvey S. Karten Compuserve Hit Me delivers mounting tension, combining action scenes with trenchant episodes, adding up to captivating cinema.

      Audience Member So close but very far behind all the hard work wasted away with empty opportunity though i gotta say the ending was pretty shitty i was rooting for Sonny every step of the way i guess in the end he was just another pawn that would be used and paid less for his efforts overall i quite enjoyed the story and related to the hungry optimistic attitude of the film kudos to the cast and director Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member [url=""][img][/img][/url] Uneven and irritating in so many ways. I want to say something nice about this film, but I cannot. Oops, yes I can. The chick was hot and I loved her French accent. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member What a strange and bizarre film. It does not succeed entirely, but it is well directed and has a nice aura about it. The cast is very good, nice score. It is way overlong though, that causes it to drag somewhat in the middle. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member (***): [img][/img] An odd noir-like film that kept me interested throughout. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member A well done little noir with an unflinching and compelling performance by Elias Koteas. Boy, this film is dark though, and it loses steam about halfway through, only to have William H. Macy drop in for a scene and get your hopes up. It isn't great, or all that good, but if you like your neo-noirs dark and depressing, or your a fan of Koteas, it might be worth your while. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member another average heist romp...yawn. Found it in the 2 dollar bin where it belongs Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
