A film about a hit man who has trouble sleeping.

Audio: 1/5
Video: 2/5
Story: 1.5/5
Acting: 1.5/5

Pros: The little graphics and speech bubbles overlaying the video were quite funny. There were a lot of laughs over the bedtime kiwi, and I think this is a contender for best bad film.

Cons: There video and audio were not all that great, and the script seemed to have a bit of trouble coming through. The problem with portraying boredom in film is that the audience can become bored themselves.

Overall: A few issues, but it got a fair number of possibly unintended laughs from the audience.


Initially I was a bit confused, but once I realised what was happening, it was all clear, all be it a bit dark... Loved the almost "Guy Ritchieesque" dream sequence where he remembers his crimes, which is causing his insomnia. Well played.


Comic book style speech bubbles and onomatopoeias did most of the work, and were quite well done. The story itself didn't have much going on and the main character annoyed me, but that is likely because I couldn't tell what was going on. The biggest laugh was for something completely unrelated to the story so I couldn't recommend watching this film.


Unusual movie, hit man, can't sleep is killed by girlfriend because he is keeping her awake at night. Interesting use of comic speech bubble effects. Nice use of pov shot as the bullet. But not much to this one.


I like the quirky style of this film and the main character had an interesting look for screen. It was different and quite off the wall. Although I didn't always get what was going on.

An interesting film, putting in comic effects and little drawings throughout was an innovative touch, as was the split screen showing the frustration of the assassin.


A bizarre film about a hitman who has trouble sleeping. Probably one of the more inventive ways I've seen overlayed graphics and speech bubbles used get around the non-dialogue genre, including a cameo from what looked like the good night kiwi. The surprise ending certainly continued the strange nature of the film, though not quite in a satisfying way. A cautionary tale for all insomniacs.
