Ugh! 15 minutes into this movie my wife was pleading with me to go across the hall to watch another movie. The only good part about this movie was James Gandolfini. He was excellent portraying an aging hit man. Not even worth renting on DVD.

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

This has to be one of the worst films ever made, if you happen to have been sucked in ask the theatre for your money back as I did. Disgusting and repulsive I give it MINUS 1,000 stars. It must of taken all of 30 minutes to write the script and a day or two to film this joke flick. Makes me rethink ever wanting to step back into a theatre. I'd rather stay home clean my house and do laundry before I subject myself to this Hollywood Trash again.

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.
