Asher (2018): Drama


An aging contract killer finds himself between a hard place and a rock during his final assignment, making him reassess his life’s goals.

I guess marketing is to blame here. The trailer promised an action film when in reality “Asher” is a drama. Ron Perlman gives an esoteric performance as Asher who revaluates his life, shows remorse, and hopes it is not too late to turn his life around. All that while falling in love with the personification of innocence (the always amazing Famke Janssen) and while everyone is trying to take him out.

Pour some wine, put your feet on the table, and give it a go. Don’t expect a Michael Bay production where everything blows up and you might be surprised.
