I would wait to see this movie on HBO.

I was so excited to see Killing them softly but it was truly a big let down. I must admit Killing them softly is not going to be a Sopranos type movie even though some of the cast was in the movie, but overall I was pretty disappointed. I will not be purchasing this movie on DVD.

Sort of a poor mans Tarantino, but not.

What happened to Hollywood writers? Where they unavailable for this? This was the most uninteresting mobster/heist movie I've ever seen. Great actors. Great cinematography. But what about story? What about clever dialog? Not here folks. The writing was lame. Just boring rambling in a wannabe Tarantino sort of way. Nothing new, clever or funny in the "black comedy" this was supposed to be. Pitt was good as usual as was the rest of the cast but the script was not worth the effort. Some interesting visuals. That's about it.

was very disappointed. left the movie feeling sick because it sucked so bad. was very confusing and slow, never really knew what the hell was going on. the best part is the slow motion shooting scene.

Killing them Badly

This has to be the worst movie I have seen in a long time. I don't even remember what movie was worst than this thing, but I'm sure there must be one out there somewhere. I saw that the reviewers generally gave it a good rating so I went knowing that I don't agree with reviewers too often. Boy I should of followed my gut on this one and saved my money. Brad Pitt and the rest of the actors did an ok job but the story, directing, and cinematography were so bad that 10 minutes into the movie I was thinking about leaving. Then Brad showed up and added a little spark and I stayed till the end hoping it would get better. It never did. Do not waste any money on this thing.

Terrible movie - the theater should be embarrassed to charge for this DOG. Thought because Brad Pitt was in it, it would be worth seeing. It was VERY SLOW, VERY BLOODY - truly can't think of ONE redeeming this about this film. If the goal was to show an extremely seedy side of life it succeeded - that's the only thing it succeeded in doing. Nancy1202
