Badly employing all kinds of tricks ... [Lustig] ultimately overpowers her actors and does in her own film.

An edgy, energetic romantic thriller.

Happily the filmmakers here are more interested in its people and their lives than in the chase that follows.

The kind of quirky film the movie world could use more of in these days of cookie-cutter studio pictures.

The performances in several smaller roles are so mechanical that they lend Kill Me Later the tone of a vanity production.

Audience Reviews for Kill Me Later


This movie was really entertaining to watch. Selma Blair was great as a woman drowning in depression and hopelessness. The sense of overwhelming blackness that surrounds the character is very believable. Max Beesley was perfectly charming as the bumbling robber. This movie was not intended to be academy award caliber, just to make you smile and share in a romantic fantasy

An interesting film.

Super Reviewer

Looked interesting, so I thought I'd check it out. Surprisingly better and more intelligent than I had expected from the synopsis. A strong 90's feel, although filmed in 2001 (the FX are dated) and decent soundtrack. Strong acting and a solid script keeps it interesting, especially once Charlie and Shawn meet up. Overall an average movie that will keep you entertained and interested until the predictable finally. Recommend.
