Lanning's Review of The Killing Kind
The Killing Kind(2003)
A disappointlngly albeit probably sincere attempt to present a complex character who is not. The psychological make-up of Andrew Howard's character is a mismash of ideas making me picture some writer who took a basic psychology course and earned a middling grade. My guess is that we're supposed to sympathize with Howard, but there's no way this is possible, especially given his final two audience-cheating murders. When he dies, it's definitely good riddance. The only thing that would have been better would be if all his nasty, crazy associates had died along with him. The one and a half stars here are for Geraldine O'Rawe, period. Nothing for her writer/director husband Paul Sarossy or any of the other actors in this smurfer.
