Don't bother

Ugh! 15 minutes into this movie my wife was pleading with me to go across the hall to watch another movie. The only good part about this movie was James Gandolfini. He was excellent portraying an aging hit man. Not even worth renting on DVD.

Not as advertised, but still pretty good as a character study

The trailer for this film makes it look like a free-for-all meltdown of criminal missteps that Brad Pitt comes in to clean-up with very large guns. In reality, this is a talking head movie that has what little action there is capsulized in brief, hyper-violent nuggets compressed between LONG stints of getting to know our notably-predictable rogues gallery, warts and all. It’s the longest (and driest) episode of The Sopranos ever. Fortunately, I generally like talkey films (it’s what I’ve come to appreciate in this era in lieu of actual storytelling). The film also rises above its stereotypes with great acting and a narrative that symbolically ties the capitalism and corporatization that runs - and ruins - our country into the actions of gangsters. This was all pretty cool. Well, until the hammer-driven sermon of the last five minutes. That was just preachy. All in all, a decent start

This was the worst movie I have seen this year. Three couples walked out before we did. We walked out after 1 hr. Don't waste your money!

I am an avid movie - goer . I see a movie on average once or twice a week. Killing them softly is one of the worse movies I have seen in years. Please don't waste your time and money going to see it. I wish I had skipped it. Brad Pitt should be ashamed !!!!!

Killing Them Softly

This movie killed me, but not softly. It drug from beginning to the end. This is the first movie I really did not like any part of. I started to leave half way through. Didn't but should have. I went because I like a number of the actors in it. That wasn't enough.
