You really never get used to seeing these two angelic girls with their giant blue eyes gleefully and efficiently murdering people.

The movie becomes much more complicated and interesting when they're assigned James Gandolfini as a target. When he appeared on screen, people around me in the audience actually sighed in happy relief. Tony Soprano is here! And he's playing a sad mushy man who may have hired the girls himself to help him commit suicide.
