Overview
Lonely hit man Julian Noble (Pierce Brosnan in a Golden Globe®-nominated performance) and struggling salesman Danny Wright (Oscar® nominee* Greg Kinnear) form an unexpected bond during a chance meeting in a Mexican bar. Six months later, when the self-proclaimed "facilitator of fatalities" turns up on the doorstep desperate for help, Danny and his wife (Hope Davis) are both horrified...but intrigued enough to oblige. Together, the two men set out for the most thrilling adventure of Danny's life and the most critical kill of Julian's career. Deftly mixing explosive action with savage wit, The Matador is "effortlessly entertaining" (Rex Reed, THE NEW YORK OBSERVER).

*1997: Actor in a Supporting Role, As Good As It Gets.
