Summary: Because it’s based on a play the action does all seem to occur in one place; predominantly the Smith family trailer. I didn’t find this too distracting but I did find it a little claustrophobic at times. All of the performances were truly excellent but I have to say the critics were right; Matthew McConaughey really does stand out in this one.
Summary: One messed up movie I give you that. The plot is rather shallow and the cast isn't that good. Only thing that really saves the film is McConaughey's strong performance. Still worth giving a chance though.
Summary: Perhaps the greatest quality of Killer Joe is that it never pretends to be anything more than a wickedly deranged and entertaining piece of trash. Freed from the obligation to make any sort of artistic statement, Friedkin delivers the goods and coaxes stellar performances from his cast; particularly McConaughey and Church. It's definitely not for everyone, but it never tries to be.
I LOVED IT! BUT NOT FOR THE SQUEAMISH ONES. P.S. if you don't want any

Excerpt: "P.S. if you don't want any spoilers, don't read the review of "blu-ray-neil" This movie is quite surprising! Matthew Mccounaughey gave a superb performance as the JOE. The director made an excellent job. It has humor, suspense and so on.. it's complete. It's the "stay-in-the-edge-of-your-seat" movie. Not for kids. But I really loved this! Best blind buy purchased of the year for me! Totally recommended.
Excerpt: Three things made me rent KILLER JOE. A good all around cast, William Friedkin's involvement and a 8.2/10 movie rating. How bad could it be? This is only one man's review, so please do not shoot the messenger. I'm an avid movie buff and watch at least one a day. Maybe I'm not in tune with current cinematic qualities, but I found KILLER JOE to be a disgusting piece of trash. Sure there's humor, but it's either dark or sick...take your pick.
