Kill Me Three Times (2015)
Critic Consensus: Kill Me Three Times offers Simon Pegg an opportunity to play against type as a villain; unfortunately, its derivative storyline fails to offer much of anything to viewers.

Critic Reviews for Kill Me Three Times
How do you cast Simon Pegg in a movie and then do virtually nothing with him?
All participants could have gotten up to something far more enjoyable.
Not a great film. Or particularly good. In fact, it's fairly bad as B-movies go.
The director, Kriv Stenders, arranges bodies in spaces without distinction, but he does show a curious fondness for shots of moving cars. It's an image he returns to so many times that you wonder if he was as eager to get out of here as you are.
"Kill Me Three Times" works overtime to seem unique and clever. The result, however, is a derivative, gimmicky, at times dizzying puzzle that fails to engage.
Audience Reviews for Kill Me Three Times
Why this has the rotten RottenTomato score it has is a mystery to me. This modern day noir casts Pegg against type thankfully, as a hitman loose in a remote seaside village where no one, in typical noir fashion, is innocent. Quite enjoyed the romp and think you might as well.
An entertaining dark comedy, Kill Me Three Times delivers some fun laughs. The story follows a hitman named Charlie Wolfe who's hired to kill a businessman's wife, but the job goes sideways when she's abducted by a couple that's plotting an insurance scheme. It's a little convoluted, but it's told in an interesting nonlinear way. Starring Simon Pegg, Alice Braga, and Teresa Palmer, the film has a pretty decent cast that does well with this type of humor. Yet the tone is a little uneven, and most of the characters are undeveloped. Kill Me Three Times has some weakness, but overall is a fairly entertaining indie comedy.
Not so good as any of the movies it painfully obviously wishes it was, but much better than the film I was expecting after reading the reviews and critical scores it was getting. Maybe it's just my well documented appreciation of Simon Pegg and Callan Mulvey, or maybe I'm just keen on gangster-themed clusterfucks, or maybe I'm bias 'cause I live in Australia and we almost never get to have films set here, but liked Kill Me Three Times just fine.
