HIT TEAM (2015) Movie Review

  • By Cara Buckley

Hit Team  is an outrageous comedy about a pair of assassins, Max and Ruthie, who must fulfill a large contract under a strict deadline. As if that isn’t stressful enough, imagine working with a difficult partner. It becomes evident from the beginning that the two struggle to work together. Ruthie has severe trust issues, and Max is very easily distracted. So, it comes as no surprise that they fail the job, a failure that near costs them their lives. 

Their inability to work together leads to failure.

In the meantime, the story follows another team, two detectives following their crime spree around the city. They have a much more trusting relationship. They work together, they get along, and they agree with each other. Their investigation (though riddled with errors) leads them to Max and Ruthie just in time to save their lives. 

Their ability to work together leads to success.

That is a lesson that Max and Ruthie must learn over time. By the end, their relationship is not only improved, but their new lease on life inspires them to resign as assassins. What begins as hopeless conflict ends as a budding romance.

Sure, Hit Team appears as if it bears nothing but rough edges and plot holes. However, when taken in the spirit of what it is, the outrageous comedy is enjoyable and thought provoking.
