"Waiting On Alphie was truly an engaging film with a shocking turn of events in the end. The dialogue between the hitman and his target was not only riveting, but also had me laughing out loud. The story was an emotional roller coaster ride set against a ticking clock."

"The plot twists and turns...ingenious..."
