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.

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.

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.

This has to be the WORST movie I've seen in as long as I can remember. I'm not one to leave review because of time issues but this one I couldn't pass. How in the world would "Brad Pitt" be in such a awful movie..? Most of it is just people sitting and talking, what a waste of my time....we are movie buffs and some are great, others good and others not so good but this one was AWFUL!!

I thought that Brad Pitt was good, but the character didn't have much depth other than him being a hit man who followed politics. The start of the movie was about as slow as I have ever seen and I almost walked out. Overall, it wasn't that great. I like James Gandolfini, but the relationship between the two hit men was not very believeable. I expected a better movie considering the actors involved, but honestly the promo for "Django" before the movie started was better than the entire "Killing them Softly" movie
