Critic Reviews for U Want Me 2 Kill Him?
[Director Andrew Douglas] is only partially successful at depicting its many twists and turns in convincing fashion. But it's compelling nonetheless, if only for the sheer bizarreness of the events depicted.
It's effective, in its way, and the acting is excellent, across the board. But "U Want Me 2 Kill Him" side-steps the real fascination with the story, its real guts, which is: Why?
Andrew Douglas, who directed the 2005 "The Amityville Horror" remake, mishandles the standard noir as straightforward drama and gives it an unfortunate after-school-special vibe.
Walden's structurally elaborate script can't quite conjure the social and environmental detail necessary to make the belief-defying believable on a dramatic level.
Audience Reviews for U Want Me 2 Kill Him?
Excellent mystery about some very stupid and very damaged teenagers. Some of the situations and dialog may seem unbelievable at first, but most of it is very, very close to the actual events on which the film is based. Even if you figure out what is going on early, it is still fascinating to watch.
If Spike Jonze's "Her" seeks to destigmatize and legitimize the existence of online relationships, "U Want Me 2 Kill Him?" seeks to do the opposite. But Walden's structurally elaborate script can't quite conjure the social and environmental detail necessary to make the belief-defying believable on a dramatic level.
Dunno why, except those periodic Jane Austen's work pieces, contemporary UK productions (no matter of TV or movies) always sound flippant & shallow in tone to me, when comparing to Hollywood, or other European, Nordic, etc Cinemas. "uwantme2killhim?" is just another example. The film actually is not that bad, the twist & turn at the end works on me too. The 'based on/inspired by true story/events' thing punchline is completely meaningless to me though.
