Weary and familiar foray in to gangster turf
December 12, 2012
It's a rollercoaster: long talky tete a tetes, punctuated with shocking violence (both of which are masterfully presented).
December 12, 2012
Killing Them Softly finds its own rhythm and eventually its own way of building dread, punctuated by bravura cinematic moments that won't soon be forgotten
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

The completely obvious comparison to the mobster world and our American economic system is a welcome, straight-forward surprise for storytelling.

The pace is deliberate, yet that simmering sociopolitical undercurrent gives Killing Them Softly more weight than its rather conventional concept might suggest.

Jackie Cogan understands his fate in a way that the other smart guys don't quite, an understanding that makes him seem somehow smarter.

Jackie Cogan (Brad Pitt) understands his fate in a way that the other smart guys don't quite, an understanding that makes him seem somehow smarter.

Killing Them Softly positions itself as a heady piece of entertainment, but it's ultimately no more intelligent than The Pet Goat.

It's a pleasure to watch Pitt work in dialogue-rich, subversively comic film noir.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Another one of those films that makes you wish Quentin Tarantino had taken up hotel and restaurant management.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
December 6, 2012
Ray Liotta gets his butt super kicked in this one. It's actually quite scary.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.75/5
December 6, 2012
Emerging director Andrew Dominick comes out swinging in this nonsensical gangland farce.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

Another misfire for Brad Pitt. This hit man story is overly talkative and lacking in entertainment value
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

The closing punchline is such a knockout, you might forgive the lack of subtlety preceding it.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
December 5, 2012
Absent poppy dialogue and a few terrifically well-staged action scenes, the director doesn't seem very alive to the material.

Pitt's best work in years. His final, show-stopping speech is phenomenal.

Killing Them Softly has jumped to the top of my list of worst movies of 2012
Full Review | Original Score: bomb

More bullets-and-bloodshed that's stylish, cynical - and unappealing.

You may find yourself wishing these hooligans would raise a little more hell and watch a little less C-SPAN.
December 4, 2012
Killing Them Softly is mad as hell and isn't going to take it anymore, but fails to provide an invitation to join the outrage.
