Killing Them Softly

Killing Them Softly(2012)

An instant crime classic. The best movie of it`s kind since No Country for Old Men. A well-crafted, well-character developed and immensely impressive piece of work that's razor-sharp and brutally funny. It has a seductive and razor-sharp groove that`s all its own. A wickedly gripping, dazzling and pulse-pounding crime-thriller. This is strong, confident, brilliant and brutal film-making at it`s best. Director, Andrew Dominik crafts a superb and hard-boiled crime film that's packed with a lot of star power, suspense and dark humor. A masterpiece. It`s explosive, wickedly funny and smart film that has the love of dialogue, grim atmosphere, shady characters, dry wit and violent nature that would make the likes of The Coen Brothers, Guy Ritchie and Quentin Tarantino proud. A stylish, pistol-packing, tongue-in-cheek, and hard-boiled thrill-ride. A tremendously entertaining and wildly cool edge of your seat movie. I loved it. This movie hits the jackpot. A great all-star cast who all deliver solid work here. Brad Pitt is at the top of his game here, he gives one of his best and most compelling performances ever. Pitt is unforgettable. Richard Jenkins is terrific. James Gandolfini is excellent. Ray Liotta is marvelous. Ben Mendelsohn and Scoot McNairy are exceptional, they have great and decently funny chemistry
