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

Horrible movie! Didn't understand the purpose of things that continued in the background throughout the movie. A lot of guys sitting around look at each other with no dialogue. Slow and boring . . . several people left in the middle. Unfortunately I stayed to the end thinking that surely there must be more to the story. Sadly, there wasn't. Two hours of my life that I will never get back.

This movie was trying to be too much. It was like Mamet vs Tarantino vs Kevin Smith, and they all were on Qualuudes. Just tried to be a little too deep, a little too violent, a little too ironic. And it missed on all of them.

Some movies are good. Some movies are bad. And then you have that rare breed of movies like this one that is just pure torture to sit through. Half the audience walked out in the middle and the other half would have if they werent asleep.This is the bad movie by which every other bad movie will now be judged against. Besides being just plain bad. Slow as molasses. And Utter torture to sit through. Its just plain stupid. Example. In one scene at the beginning of this borefest. .Horribly miscast Ray Liotta has the crap beaten out of him. His face is smashed. His nose is busted. His jaw is fractured in 3 places. He is hit so many times in the stomach he vomits blood, and appears near death.Next scene finds him in the office with only a Jr bandaid over his eye looking like he just came from a vacation in the Bahamas. Avoid this trash like the plague
