Killing Them Softly

Submitted by Druss on Sat, 2013-02-02 02:18

Killing Them Softly is a gangster movie with delusions of complexity. While I suppose that it's clever to correlate a gangwar with the economic crisis from 2008, repeatedly hitting the viewer with this message makes the entire effort simply annoying. Good acting, semi-decent plot, bad direction. That said, I can watch just about anything with Brad Pitt in it.

While it has a number of positives, they are overwhelmed by the negatives. One of the former is the presence of Tom Hardy who is one cool fscker. One of the latter is the plot which is a little wishy-washy. The script is also not really all that great with the characters coming across as too hollow. However, what I really did not like about this movie was the presence of Shia LaBeouf who is probably the most annoying actor on the planet.

I would have given it one more star if it wasn't for Shiat.
