  • Summary: Moved so slow, I was ready to give up halfway through. I'm sure the director was trying to make some point about the government and America or some such thing (what with all the presidential speeches going on in the background) but I was so bored I didn't even try to make the connection. Brad Pitt is good in just about everything he's in, but not even he could save this one.

Killing Them Softly

  • Excerpt: De film is niet slecht, maar ook niet goed. Het zit er een beetje tussenin. Maar hoe kan dat nou? Alle ingrediënten van een cultfilm zaten erin en dan ook gespeeld door gearriveerde topacteurs. Daar zit dan ook tegelijk de frictie. Men heeft geprobeerd een commerciële cultfilm neer te zetten en dat is niet de weg om tot een cultfilm van niveau te komen, maar het idee was wel leuk.

"Killing Them Softly" by Yojimbo

  • Excerpt: Two small time ex-cons stick up a card game frequented by organized criminals and find themselves targeted by a mob enforcer who is brought in to investigate the robbery. Judging by the constant and heavy-handed news sound-bites centring around the recent economic crisis, Killing Them Softly is clearly making making an analogy with the US economy as these mobsters are also feeling the financial pinch.

  • Summary: I loved this movie. Seeing James Gandolfini and Brad Pitt together reminded me of True Romance. I bet there is a story there on how they were cast again. JG was fantastic. My gf said I'm just like him when I'm trying to order a drink. I thought the movie moved just fine. I'm not looking for constant action in every scene.

  • Excerpt: Heerlijke rauwe misdaadfilm met lachwekkende en stompzinnige acties van de personages. De timing in dialogen is bij vlagen echt perfect en super grappig. Één van de laatste films met James Gandolfini en ook hier zien we weer dat we een groot acteur van dit soort typische gangsterfiguren moeten missen. Kijken dus.

  • Excerpt: Killing Them Softly may be set in modern times utilizing political banter from Bush Jr and Obama to push the plot along for the agenda of Brad Pitts character, the movie feels like it could be from the 1970's for its gritty street value style. Guided with good performances and well written dialog, Killing them Softly is a must see for fans of this style of film and a solid rental for the rest.

  • Excerpt: Hier had ik dus echt meer van verwacht en als je kijkt welke acteurs hebben meegewerkt had het er ook wel in moeten zitten, maar helaas. Het verhaal is erg traag van opbouw, maar dat vind ik in principe nog niet zo heel erg. Wel vind ik dat bijna alle acteurs wel eens een betere prestatie hebben afgeleverd en dat is wel een groot minpunt. Wat mij verder opvalt is dat deze film wel heel onverwacht afloopt op een moment dat je echt denkt er komt nog wat.

"America is not a country, it's a business."

  • Excerpt: Synopsis: After some local thugs disrupt the mob's action, an enforcer is called in to restore order and to punish the men responsible. Comments: This is a short, simple movie stretched to 97 minutes by numerous lengthy scenes of dialogue that was neither terribly interesting nor clever, punctuated by bursts of graphic and bloody violence, and accompanied by a soundtrack consisting of an eclectic assortment of songs and political speeches by Dubya and Barry O.
