This movie killed me, but not softly. It drug from beginning to the end. This is the first movie I really did not like any part of.
I started to leave half way through. Didn't but should have.
I went because I like a number of the actors in it. That wasn't enough.

Solid performances by a excellent cast and snappy, witty, dialogue are no substitute for a story that doesn't seem to know where it wants to go. While there is much to appreciate in this film, it can probably better enjoyed in the comforts of home.

Here's a film with great acting and photography, but it falls flat due to the script and the deadly dull direction. Essentially the film is a series of one on one talks between various crooks - two hit men (Brad Pitt and James Gandolfini) reminisce, a hit man (Pitt) and his boss (Richard Jenkins) come to terms, two low level crims (Trevor Long and Max Casella) get high together, etc. etc. Ray Liotta and Sam Shepard are completely wasted, though you might get some pleasure watching Liotta get a beating since he usually has been on the other side. Too bad. There is some really good acting here.

Don't waste your time, we walked out after 20 minutes of absolutley nothing happening. One of the worst movies I 've ever seen.

I enjoyed this movie, even though it was slow building. A lot of the "boring" dialogue that people have talked about as mindless or not needed actually was great character development throughout. You were given a great look into the minds of those who commit crimes and why. As for Brad Pitt, he did a good job in his role but he should in no way be the cover of this movie poster. The movie as a whole was very graphic and pulls no punches. If you are easily offended or politically biased, don't waste your time because its not for you.
