Tropes for the film:
- Camping a Crapper: Julian's favorite theory of assassination. Referred to by Julian as the "Gotta Pee Theory".
- Hitman with a Heart: Julian is a lonely, damaged hitman who's starting to lose his edge.
- Professional Killer: Julian Noble is a deconstruction of a James Bond style assassin, played by Brosnan, a former Bond actor. He is handsome, often charming, highly skilled, and a world traveler. However, while on the job he's tacky, lonely, and suffers guilt-induced panic attacks.
- Sean Connery Is About to Shoot You: Brosnan on some versions of the film poster and DVD cover.
