‘The Man from Toronto,’ directed by Patrick Hughes

Movie, 2022

Comedy thriller based on the mistaken identity of a hapless, hopeless dreamer, who’s then coerced into the life of a cold-blooded assassin. A bit of a splodge film, with extended action sequences and set-pieces, with the comic tone not quite fitting the action throughout. Still, it’s all fairly enjoyable with some decent highlights, not least the leads, who play things nice and crisply. The character development of the actual cold-blooded assassin feels like a stretch, but this isn’t a film which takes itself too seriously A little overlong, perhaps with one too many fight scenes, but not such a bad film for just kicking back and enjoying with a bucket of popcorn.
