The Matador

Danny (Greg Kinnear) helps Julian (Pierce Brosnan) on his last assignment at a race track in Arizona. On the flight back to Denver, Julian reveals that the man that he just killed wasn't his last assignment but his boss and that killing him was the only way that he could walk away and retire from being a hitman. There's a flashback to the night in Mexico when Julian was knocking at Danny's door and we see that Danny asked Julian to kill his (Danny's) competition from work so that he could get the contract he wanted. Julian said no to the idea and also said to Danny that he's not the kind of person that could live with the guilt of somebody else's blood on his hands. The movie ends with Danny and his wife visiting their son's grave and Julian leaves to Greece.


Continuity mistake: During the bar scene in Mexico when Pierce and Greg first meet, Pierce lights a cigarette, then puts it in his mouth. The camera cuts away right as he's putting the cigarette to his lips, but in the very next shot of him, (a close-up), there is no cigarette, and his mouth is closed.
