Visually striking, with a killer soundtrack, The Liability follows a veteran assassin dreaming of retirement (Roth), who is paired with an eager young driver on a mission to carry out a long-distance ‘hit’ job.
After crashing a prize car belonging to his gangster stepfather (played by the formidable Peter Mullan), Adam (O’Connell) is forced to repay the debt by teaming up with professional hit man, Roy, to act as driver on what should be a swift and easy mission.
Whilst Roy desperately wants to leave the killing game, Adam develops into an enthusiastic and aspirational hit-man. A beautiful, mysterious young woman (Talulah Riley (St Trinians 1 & 2, Pride & Prejudice) has witnessed the murder and professional code dictates that she must also now be dispatched. As events unfold, it becomes apparent that there is more to her arrival than mere coincidence.
