Killing Them Softly

The most HORRIBLE movie I have ever seen! I go to the movies at least once a week and sat through many "dogs" but this was by far the worst movie ever! I walked out and demanded my money back...which I got. I was the 6th person to walk out!!!!! Save yourself don't see it. And BTW Brad Pitt for the first hour he had maybe 10 mins of air time. What a waste!

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

Killing Them Slowly

Movie took forever to get going...in fact it never "really" did. Great characters and wonderful acting but story too slow. I blame the demise of what could have been a cult favorite because of the interesting characters on the director. Somebody please call Quentin Tarantino.

How ironic the title is reflective of how I felt watching it

Sorry but to all writers out there how about providing some depth to your scripts rather than every other word being the F word. This movie was awful. Pitt was subpar gandolfini's character was pointless just like the movie. Save 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 !!!!!
