9PM, 9GO! MA. 2011. This action-thriller follows the story of an elite hit man (Jason Statham) as he teaches his trade to an ex-con alcoholic apprentice in preparation for a revenge job. Statham is a model of control in this film — he’s steely and graceful in his action scenes and his interplay with the wiry Ben Foster delivers the goods.
NEW IN TOWN

IN THE HOUSE
1.25AM, SBS2 MA. 2012. Dark, tense, and wryly funny, In the House is brilliantly directed by François Ozon and features fine performances from its talented cast, which includes Kristin Scott Thomas and Bastien Ughetto. Definitely a good choice for your Monday.
