I am not slamming this Roger Avary film for not being a Quentin Tarantino film. I am slamming it for not being a good Roger Avary film.

An ultra-violent but vapid crime caper that owes as much to Tarantino as to film noir, both American and French.

A bummer.

An ugly, mean movie that represents the low point for Tarantino knockoffs -- and Tarantino actually produced it!

Clever'n a barrel of monkeys.

A gory bloodbath with no redeeming elements whatsoever.

Audience Reviews for Killing Zoe

Roger Avery's completely subtle masterpiece of a bank heist epic. The story is incredibly well crafted and eccentric, without having any of Tarantino's stink all over it (which ruined Pulp Fiction for me). The filming style is quite original, but also homages classics like Dog Day Afternoon. The acting was extremely above average for a low budget, including one of Eric Stoltz's best performances.

Nothing original here. A good cast wasted (No pun intended). Has Roger Avary even been to Paris?

A thoroughly entertaining and stylish B-movie heist caper, but the balance between pros and cons isn't quite equal enough to warrant a strong recommendation.

Directed by Roger Avery, Produced by Quentin Tarantino, amidst the height of the 90?s Cult drug fuelled storylines, topped with violent criminals and a chaotic bank robbery.

Some pretty good camera shot interpretations and probably the role Eric Stoltz is best known for (apart from his smaller role in Pulp Fiction that is).

Certainly not flawless and perhaps the one that has dated more than some of the other within this genre and era, but one woth watching.
