Summary: You know how No Country For Old Men very powerfully expresses the senselessness of violence? So that even if it's not entirely clear why everything happened somehow the point lands and you don't question the ending. This movie is not like that. This movie has senseless violence with a bit more nonsense thrown on top. It's not very scary. The script is fine.
Summary: This poor excuse for a movie is like some sort of bad acid trip. You just want it to end so that you can get on with your life. How this disgusting film garnered one award, let alone many, is beyond me. This is garbage.
Summary: I had hoped for an interesting thriller since the plot made it sound interesting, but I just couldn't get into the movie or characters and in the end I was disappointed by the entire thing. Maybe a second viewing would make me see it in a different light, but as it stands, I'm left wondering what I missed in this one.
Summary: The film starts with what looks like an average domestic drama with Jay and Shel constantly falling out and making up. But once Jay and Cal set about their work the whole atmosphere of the piece changes. There is a great sense of mystery with several aspects of the plot not fully explained, leaving it to the audience to decide, this I really liked.
Summary: A gruesomely entertaining scary flick. It demands to be talked about seen again and again. It's hard to say anything about the plot but there are so many intricate themes and interpretive parts of the plot that will leave you thinking about it long after you've seen it . A mesmerising picture.
Summary: An unusual slow-burner that defies genre category and evolves into a strange tale all it's own. The unexpected turns and thrilling latter half make up for the deliberately slow paced and slightly uninteresting first half. If you give it time, the payoff is rewarding.
Summary: Kill List is a strange film to be sure. But it's also a wonderful slowburn where things become stranger and stranger and the viewer is left in the dark just like the protagonist. Usually films dealing with the occult are either over the top or silly, but this one is more along the lines of the original wicker man, it slowly creeps under your skin until you feel just as disoriented and frustrated as the main character.
Summary: I had only heard good things about the Kill List, so going into it I was expecting something fairly amazing. The basic premise is that an out-of-work, ex-soldier hitman who screwed up his last job gets a final chance to prove himself. The basic difference between this and many other films with similar premises is that he has a wife, a son, and a best friend, also a hitman, who is there to I had only heard good things about the Kill List, so going into it I was expecting...
Summary: Kill List works extremely well as a taut, quite terrifying horror film about an out-of control British hitman. Neil Maskell is mesmerising as Jay, a frustrated ex-soldier who returns to his past career of contract killing to support his family, but as his emotions begin to intrude, the stress and paranoia linked to his morally dubious job steadily fracture his sanity.
