Critic Reviews for Killing Them Safely (Tom Swift And His Electric Rifle)

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

With the intensified focus on use of force in police departments, the unsettling documentary "Killing Them Safely" couldn't be timelier.

December 3, 2015 | Full Review…

Mr. Berardini's packed documentary makes its case early and often, perhaps too often, but it's more chilling than your average issue film.

November 26, 2015 | Full Review…

Berardini's doc vigorously proves that despite their marketing, Tasers are not the answer. They are only means to a bigger, deadlier problem.

November 25, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Relying entirely on flawed cases and weak lawsuits from the mid-2000s, "Killing Them Safely" is a very poor indictment of TASER International, the manufacturer of the widely used and mostly safe electronic weapon.

November 25, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Footage of the now-wealthy Smiths being deposed is damning, the brothers' legal jiujitsu is appalling, and the stories of deaths are heartbreaking.

November 24, 2015 | Full Review…

An important account of shifts in policing tactics and the problematic interaction between law enforcement and private companies.
