    Comments
    . In "The Big Hit," Mark Wahlberg plays the nice guy hitman Melvin Surley who along with his associates - Cisco, Crunch, Vince and Gump - is drawn into a moonlighting gig that turns sour. 

    The straight forward kidnap job of Keiko has problems. Keiko turns out to be the godchild of their boss, Paris. Not a good career move. And Cisco doesn't help by fingering Mel for the bad job. 

    Mel's life starts to fall apart: his bad day at the job; his mistress, Chantel, who takes his hard earned money; and his fiancee's (Pam) parents who arrive for a visit. This is not a good time to impress her parents. 

    You probably remember Mark Wahlberg from his starring role as Eddie Adams in the 1997 Boogie Nights where he was the young man who became an adult film star. 

    Action comedy.
