grabbed my attention about The Killing Kind was the
storyline – a hitman who kills other hitmen is being
hunted. I wanted to know more about this character - how this
hit man was created and what his future will be, if he survives.
The storyline opens with Michael Hendricks setting up a hit
in Miami - a deadly trip up of a Hit. We witness Hendricks’
expertise, and the satisfaction he gets from taking out the
most violent of hitmen. We discover, in the storyline, he
once had a simple life and a love interest, but all was lost
in the wake of honor and duty. We also meet FBI Special Agent
Charlotte Thompson. She’s chasing Hendricks in the hopes
of bringing him in, but Hendricks is a little busy running
from his own hitman. When he realizes the killer chasing him
is after the one person he loves, he sets up a deadly trap.
It’s quite the show down.
The Killing Kind is an unexpected gem. It’s
a well-written storyline with plenty of action. Holm’s
hero is an intelligent, fearless character. I hope we see
either more of Michael Hendricks or more of this caliber of
a standalone thriller from Holms. Actor Will Collyer delivers
an intense narration.
