Short Film Review: Hit Girls

Emma (Rosie Fellner) and Megan (Gillian MacGregor) are two peas in a pod.  They share a flat in London and do almost everything together.  They also happen to be deadly assassins.  The impetuous Emma has been “grounded” by her more forceful partner for mixing business with pleasure, often with disastrous results.  Already seething from having been punished for her transgressions, Emma goes nuclear when she sees Meagan not following her own advice.  Her meltdown culminates in an unsanctioned kill, and the two then have to dispose of the body.  Both women are obviously masters at their craft, but can they stop bickering with each other long enough to take care of business?
