Noomi Rapace makes good on her Hollywood hype.
The best British film of 2012.

★★ Hits, from comedian-actor-turned director David Cross is a frustrating film whose flaws infuriate in the moment but keep you thinking about it for days afterward. It’s a worthy piece of work simply by leaving no middle ground for the indifferent, even though Cross’ handling of the story leaves him straddling the fence in the end.
