Critic Reviews for The Kill Hole

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

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.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

An unconvincing, sometimes unfathomable tale about a brooding veteran (Chadwick Boseman) who was involved in a vaguely defined atrocity while fighting overseas.

New York Times
Top Critic

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.

Full Review… | April 4, 2013

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.

Audience Reviews for The Kill Hole

Too ponderous and too many themes, or was it about the scenery, or the music or radio cab or, or....too bad Chadwick Boseman -- sensitive actor
