The Big Hit
features Boogie Nights' Mark Wahlberg
playing an extraordinarily sympathetic hired killer named Melvin. A fierce murder machine, his only vulnerability is his need to be liked by everyone -- which leads to his being ripped off by cohorts and girlfriends. When Melvin and three other foolish guns-for-hire kidnap a beautiful Japanese heiress with mob connections, they have committed one crime too many. The hit is now out on them, but no one counts on the girl falling for Mel.
