Movie Info

Haunted Iraq War veteran Lt. Samuel Drake (Chadwick Boseman) is working the night shift as a cab driver in Portland when he's approached by a pair of executives (Peter Greene and Ted Rooney) with an offer he can't refuse. AWOL Marine sniper Sgt. Devin Carter (Tory Kittles) has been eliminating members of the contracting firm while hiding out in the Oregon mountains, and the executives want him dead. But they never expected what would happen if the job went awry, and as the two soldiers forge an uneasy alliance, Lt. Drake finds redemption may finally be within his reach. Billy Zane co-stars.

Critic Reviews for The Kill Hole

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (5)

  • Made up of four or five story ideas all crammed together, the film maintains a stop-start momentum at best that keeps it from ever hitting a solid stride.

    Mar 21, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • An unconvincing, sometimes unfathomable tale about a brooding veteran (Chadwick Boseman) who was involved in a vaguely defined atrocity while fighting overseas.

    Mar 14, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A middling drama that tries to combine elements of Rambo with serious treatment of soldiers' post-traumatic stress disorder and vague political commentary.

  • Boseman and Kittles somehow push past the blather to reveal the inconsolable grief and fury that so often haunts our vets.

  • ...the serious subject of post-war trauma among Iraq veterans [folded] into a revenge and redemption scenario...sometimes interesting but all too often cartoonish.

    Apr 4, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A well meaning look at post-traumatic stress disorder and ex-military account-settling, this spare yet affected would-be thriller never ripens past the point of a wobbly character study.
