Movie Info

In his film debut, novice director John Dahl (who would later make The Last Seduction), weaves a quirky tale of love, murder and deception. Jack Andrews (Val Kilmer), a seedy private detective is hired by Fay Forrester (Joanne Whalley-Kilmer), to help her fake her own death in a clever scheme to escape from her mob pursuers, whom she double-crossed stealing money she had been sent to pick up, and are now intent on killing her. There then ensues a series of complicated plot-twists, double-crosses and surprises as Fay and Jack race each other to escape the mobsters, who have found them, and to get the money before the other does.

Madsen's over-the-top nasty performance as a crazed killer gets your attention, in a film that feels less than filling just five minures after seeing it.

Audience Reviews for Kill Me Again

A capable first film noir from John Dahl that relies too much on coincidence and no-one-would-really-do-that moments to recommend.

Solid little detective film with some strong moments. Could have been better with regards to pacing and twists. Val Kilmer is not at his best but he is still good. So its no True Romance but a good crime drama.

Wasn't all that impressed, even though it had a pretty cool cast., which included Michael Madsen. Too bad he couldn't have brought some of his Mr. Blonde fire to this weak film.
