Kill Me Again Reviews
Not an altogether boring film, "Kill Me Again" was a good way to pass the time. It was a very typical noir film, with a very typical pseudo-romance, and an even more typical twist. Kilmer shone quite brightly in this film, despite acting alongside fan-favourite Michael Madsen and Kilmer's stunning wife-at-the-time, Joanne Whalley. The subtle and reactive performance given by Kilmer was a breath of life into a character who might otherwise have been lost in the sea of dead-boring characters. Kilmer's talent seems wasted on smaller projects such as this. However, t'was good to see Kilmer and Jon Gries pair up again. Lazlo Hollyfeld and Chris Knight together again!
"Since the death of his wife Kathy two years earlier, Jack Andrews' (Val Kilmer) life has been a shambles. Jack spends his days at the local bar, his nights in the casino and sees Kathy in every beautiful woman. Fay Forrester (Joanne Whalley), gorgeous and streetwise, has just stolen three quarters iof a million of the mob's dollars and needs to dissappear. Forever.
She asks Jack to fake her death and he succeeds beyond his wildest dreams - everyone believes Fay is dead."
A great little noir also starring Michael Madsen in a role similar to the one he would later take on in Reservoir Dogs.
