YMMV / Last Man Standing (1996)

Go To

  • Complete Monster: Hickey is the scarred, emotionless enforcer of Doyle. Dreaded even among the hardened criminals forming Jericho's population and rumored to have murdered his own father and torched the orphanage he was sent to, Hickey makes his first on-screen appearance slaughtering the men of rival boss Strozzi men and the corrupt Mexican chief they are dealing with, then tricks the border guard into thinking he's surrendering before shooting him dead. A cheerful accessory to Doyle's ongoing war with Strozzi, Hickey personally captures "John Smith" after he releases Doyle's charge Felina to safety and, with a serene expression on his face, oversees the brutal torture of Smith. Near the climax of the film, Hickey participates in an outright massacre of Strozzi's hideout where most of his men are burned alive or shot dead—with Hickey gunning down Strozzi himself—and even the eventual death of Doyle himself fails to garner any reaction out of Hickey. A loose cannon just as evil as his boss and lacking any of his redeeming qualities, Hickey is feared even on his own side and is every bit the walking nightmare many claim him to be.
