Killing Them Softly Reviews

Austin Trunick
Under the Radar

With such a strong cast, it's hard to imagine how things went so wrong.

Film School Rejects

f you find Dominik's unsubtle political statements too obvious, there is still plenty else going on in Killing Them Softly to marvel at with its familiar, and yet fresh, genre elements.

Ain't nothin' new about it, but it's a cool 97 minutes of seedy amusement.

Deadspin

Dominik wears his nihilism as a badge, but that's not what it is at all: It's a crutch, and an awfully flimsy one.

Elias Savada
Film Threat

It's a middling gangster film, but belabored with too much Sturm und Drang, particularly in banging over the audience's head the constant reminders of the fiscal cliff.

Al Alexander
The Patriot Ledger

Andrew Dominik's follow-up to 'The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford' too often fails to engage with its uneven mix of guns and gab.

We Got This Covered

Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly is a potent and miraculously-shot film that captures America's recent financial collapse through a criminal lens.

Dan Jardine
Cinemania

A noir-ish crime drama with a brain, and despite its flaws and inconsistencies, a film worth seeing. Dominik remains a filmmaker to watch.

March 21, 2013

Complex and problematic in a rather wonderful way, Killing Them Softly has flaws more interesting than some film's perfections.

Concrete Playground

Brad Pitt excels amongst an incredible ensemble cast in this gritty crime thriller.

The Standard

There are many cinematic cardinal sins, but the latest film from Aussie director Andrew Dominik commits two of the big ones - Don't Be Boring and Don't Waste A Great Cast.

Neil Pond
American Profile

A top-notch, viscerally powerfully mobster movie with a view of free-market enterprise as practiced at its most harrowingly basic, last-man-standing level.

Prairie Miller
WBAI Radio

Australian director Andrew Dominik mixes conventional mobster mayhem with an unconventional take on gangsters caught up in the Great Recession. And with Brad Pitt as his ideologically enraged male muse hitman, as if wandering in from Occupy Wall Street.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

While Dominik flourishes when it comes to the picture's excessive violence, he seems to be unable to balance those sequences with the drawn-out scenes of dialogue, which, while delivered nicely, kill any momentum the film might have had.

East Bay Express

Good actors and unimpeachable source material hampered by faulty chatter, leading to thumb-twiddling.

Weary and familiar foray in to gangster turf

It's a rollercoaster: long talky tete a tetes, punctuated with shocking violence (both of which are masterfully presented).

Killing Them Softly finds its own rhythm and eventually its own way of building dread, punctuated by bravura cinematic moments that won't soon be forgotten

The Scorecard Review

The completely obvious comparison to the mobster world and our American economic system is a welcome, straight-forward surprise for storytelling.
