The Big Hit features Boogie Nights' Mark Wahlberg playing an extraordinarily sympathetic hired killer named Melvin. A fierce murder machine, his only vulnerability is his need to be liked by everyone -- which leads to his being ripped off by cohorts and girlfriends. When Melvin and three other foolish guns-for-hire kidnap a beautiful Japanese heiress with mob connections, they have committed one crime too many. The hit is now out on them, but no one counts on the girl falling for Mel. Canadian Connection  Canadian Connection: Filmed in Toronto, Ontario.
