OK, so... my wife & I went out to the movies last night, which we usually never do because of the ridiculously high ticket prices - but we figured with so many good movies out right now, why not - right? WRONG! We went to see "Killing Them Softly" with Brad Pitt, James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta, Sam Shepard, Richard Jenkins figuring that with that cast it must be a great film! Ugh! What a total piece of crap!!!
OMG! IT WAS THE SLOWEST MOVING, MOST CONFUSING, CONVOLUTED MOVIE I'VE EVER SEEN! It made Vanilla Sky look good! The critics love it which only proves that it's garbage. My boy, "Tony Soprano", had exactly TWO scenes in it and he totally sucked in both of them - and Brad Pitt was more loopy than he was in Snatch, Babel, and Twelve Monkeys all rolled into one.
They say that this picture was made at a cost of $15 million and after the crappy opening weekend it had - the investors will be lucky to break even! Go see SKYFALL again before you waste a dime on this fiasco.

Boring and overly profane for the first 45 minutes and then lacking plot and meaning throughout the rest of the movie. Did not enjoy or like at all!

Walked out after 40 min. The only upside to my movie experience was the LA Fitness next door...at least I got a good workout. Seriously...DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

Great acting, interesting plot - too bad nobody's going to see it because of the bad reviews it is receiving but that is a shame. The acting is first rate and it is a first-rate movie. Stop reading those ridiculous reviews. Brad Pitt, Sam Shepard, James Gandolfini, Richard Jenkins, Ray Liotta...how could this movie be anything but good? The juxtaposition of politics, mobsters and the economy is brilliant and watching the interactions between Jenkins and Pitt and Gandofini and Pitt equal simply great film-making. Twenty-first century film noir at its best. The people who didn't like this film just don't understand the genre and are looking for an action, shoot 'em up film instead. That is definitely not what this is about.

The critics are correct on this (even though I have not read the critics reviews yet). Maybe this movie is too violent and real for some, and although I did not read the fan reviews yet, I just watched the movie and am glad I did. They did a good job acting, and the film was made well with the directing, cinematography, writing, ect. Real.
