Which was precisely what the audience suffered through 97 minutes of this brutal, taut expose where all are nefarious; just varying degrees of separation. The once, remarkably handsome Brad Pitt, plays philosophical "gun-for-hire", "Jackie Cogan" who "kills" from a distance, so as not to get too personal, sentimentally involved; his creed is ambushed by circumstances and his assassinations spread blood as intensely as water in post-Katrina , New Orleans...
Director Andrew Dominik features a seasoned cast (Pitt, Richard Jenkins, Ray Liotta, James Gandolfini, Scott McNairy) in a glum, lugubrious plot, revolving around the financial woes of dismal, droll, untoward individuals...

The problem with this movie is not that is bad but that everyone was expecting the next snatch , goodfellas or pulp fiction. The acting was very good but is not a action pack movie .. There's dialogue and there's a message in the core of the movie .. In other words is not for someone who is looking for a simple movie .. This movie was serios, dark violent and not fun to watch . It was movie that sends a very ugly vive .. Bratt Pitt was excellent as always

This film gets an A-Plus for acting and an F for content. The casting was perfect for this film and the acting was perfect. It's just too bad that every other word in this film is an F this and F that and more. It has some violent scenes that are graphic; but not so many that made them over the top. I'm not a prude; but the overkill of the F word made me want to walk out. There are sentences that have two to three F words in them alone. If the script would have taken out 80% of the cussing this would have been an excellent film. Wake up Hollywood, there's a reason why so many animated films are making hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office.

Shocking graphic violence, pointless dialogue, and a movie that you will want to forget you ever saw. My husband walked out early on, sadly, I did not and so wish I had!!
