Positive reviews all year long for this one and finally coming to US VOD 1/4/2012. A few sites said go in blind for maximum impact and only watch the trailer if possible.

Movie Info from RT:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Simmering marital tensions and unexpected complications weigh heavily on the conscience of a seasoned contract killer in this dark thriller from Down Terrace director Ben Wheatley. An ex-soldier in desperate need of work, Jay (Neil Maskell) is hosting a dinner party with his wife, Shel (MyAnna Buring), when the conversation with guests Gal (Michael Smiley) and Fiona (Emma Fryer) turns suddenly combative. In the aftermath of the incident, Gal proposes to Jay that they both earn a hearty payday by accepting a few well-timed contract jobs. Meanwhile, as the pair go to work getting a lock on their targets, Jay finds himself increasingly distracted by domestic issues and his growing desire to be a good father. Jay's paternal instincts drive him to violent extremes, however, when he makes a shocking discovery about one of the men on his list. Later, after finding a new tool to get the job done, the details of Jay's latest assignment begin to take on deeply ominous undertones.

Looks interesting. Will it come to bluray?

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Must..stop...buying...every bluray release...

Watched this one last night.

Very good drama.
Unfortunately, the 90 degree turn in the last act left me feeling a little flat.

A great character study of an out of control hitman suddenly, and without warning, crashes into Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The Wicker Man.
Didn't make alot of sense IMO.

Same here oink. I liked it but the sharp left turn was too out there for me. Thinking back they did leave a few small hints pointing to where it was going and the bigger picture but I dunno, just wasn't feeling it. Great acting though, especially from the main guy and girl from The Descent!

I watched this a month ago when the wife was out of town. I had a feeling she would’ve walked out on it which is why I queued it up just for that occasion, and after watching it I’m sure she would have. I almost quit a couple of time because the guy was such a loose cannon but hung in. Bottom line: my life would have gotten along just fine without watching this one.

Mine, in fact, did.

Me too.
It was almost uncomfortable to watch someone like that, although it was probably designed to be.
