The Killing Zone (1998)

Film details


Thriller story of Matthew Palmer; an underworld assassin. A professional killer, who floats in and out of each slaying, Palmer does each job quickly, efficiently. He is observer and executioner only. He has just two jobs to complete before he retires. After that - escape with his girlfriend Kerry, reward . . . rest.

Unfortunately for Palmer, both jobs dredge up past personal follies, exposing his previously traitorous acts against his former employers, blurring his personal and professional commitments, putting him on the run, pitting him against victim and fellow assassin alike, driving all involved with him toward a bloody climax.
