Don't waste your time, we walked out after 20 minutes of absolutley nothing happening. One of the worst movies I 've ever seen.

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 !!!!!

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.

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

I love mob movies and I don't mind violence. I thought the movie was boring (almost feel asleep) and I didn't care about the characters. Oh well...
