THE MEMORY OF A KILLER (2003)

A professional hitman (played by Jan Decleir from CHARACTER) is hired to kill some people, but when he realizes that the people who hired him are child rapists he starts hunting them instead. Naturally the cops get involved when prominent citizens start dropping like flies. Interesting concept, but poor execution: too long, music video stylizing, predictable story. See the generic trailer below if you don't believe me.

I had high hopes for this movie since I enjoyed Decleir so much in CHARACTER, but this movie is weak and only gets weaker as it goes along. Skip it. I would really like to see a hardcore, gritty remake. Maybe directed by Anh Hung Tran (CYCLO). That would be awesome!
