Killing Them Softly Reviews

The pace is deliberate, yet that simmering sociopolitical undercurrent gives Killing Them Softly more weight than its rather conventional concept might suggest.

Jackie Cogan understands his fate in a way that the other smart guys don't quite, an understanding that makes him seem somehow smarter.

Killing Them Softly positions itself as a heady piece of entertainment, but it's ultimately no more intelligent than The Pet Goat.

Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)

It's a pleasure to watch Pitt work in dialogue-rich, subversively comic film noir.

Another one of those films that makes you wish Quentin Tarantino had taken up hotel and restaurant management.

Ray Liotta gets his butt super kicked in this one. It's actually quite scary.

Emerging director Andrew Dominick comes out swinging in this nonsensical gangland farce.

Another misfire for Brad Pitt. This hit man story is overly talkative and lacking in entertainment value

The closing punchline is such a knockout, you might forgive the lack of subtlety preceding it.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Absent poppy dialogue and a few terrifically well-staged action scenes, the director doesn't seem very alive to the material.

Pitt's best work in years. His final, show-stopping speech is phenomenal.

More bullets-and-bloodshed that's stylish, cynical - and unappealing.

You may find yourself wishing these hooligans would raise a little more hell and watch a little less C-SPAN.

Killing Them Softly is mad as hell and isn't going to take it anymore, but fails to provide an invitation to join the outrage.

CJ Johnson
ABC Radio (Australia)

A masterclass in precise, auteurist cinema ... Short, sharp, talky, lean, and almost completely inhabited by men, Killing The Softly is cerebral, nasty, and hugely entertaining.

Suite101.com

Terrific performances, but it too often feels like a referendum on Brad Pitt's disappointment in President Obama, much like George Clooney's "The Ides of March." Unlike "Ides," it strains mightily to Say Something Big about political bread & circus.

'Killing Them Softly' collapses under the crushing weight of the director's narcissism.

"Killing Them Softly" is a package mix of 'The Departed' and 'Pulp Fiction', something you have seen before with very little improvement.
