"They cry, they plead, they beg, they piss themselves, they cry for their mothers. It gets embarrassing. I like to kill 'em softly. From a distance."

Director Andrew Dominik's third feature film after Chopper and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, 2012's Killing Them Softly is a brutal tale of mob politics based on George V. Higgins' 1974 novel Cogan's Trade... read more

I adore Andrew Dominik, CHOPPER is just stupendous and THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES is my favourite film of the 00s. As such I was very much excited for KILLING HIM SOFTLY. As such I’m kind of conflicted about the film, because I think from any other director I’d view it as an absolute slamdunk, but as a follow up to THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES it feels at times kind of perfunctory.read more

A good movie

Man, it seems that Andrew Dominik and Brad Pitt will never catch a break… Back in 2007, they made ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford’(allegedly Brad Pitt’s favorite performance of his own) and even though it was loved by some, it was barely seen at the time. 5 years later, they come up with another project and, this time, not only it was again barely seen but it di... read more

"5.3 viaplay A simple and pretty average film that has nothing huge or special in it. It's just a movie in which Brad Pitt looks bad-ass and kills a couple of thieves. It's all in the atmosphere that is rough and hasn't anything too shiny or excessive. Reminds of the times when Hollywood produced good crime films."

"I saw some trailer of this movie a year ago and I was glad to see this in my brother's hard disk. This was directed by same guy who directed "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" and I liked that movie so I gave it a try. I don't know, in my opinion it was doing the Tarantino approach. My favorite part of the movie is seeing Ben Mendelsohn looking wasted and with another dog

A good movie

“Man, it seems that Andrew Dominik and Brad Pitt will never catch a break… Back in 2007, they made ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford’(allegedly Brad Pitt’s favorite performance of his own) and even though it was loved by some, it was barely seen at the time. 5 years later, they come up with another project and, this time, not only it was again barely seen but it didn’t get much love either. Personally, I did like it but, I have to admit it, the whole thing was really flawed but let’s start with the good stuff. In my opinion, the whole thing looked great, with an often gorgeous cinematography and a very nice tone and style. Furthermore, the acting was just top-notch (Brad Pitt, James Gandolfini, Richard Jenkins, Ray Liotta, Sam Shepard). So, what went wr” read more

"13.1 This had some tarantinoesque like feel to it without the natural swagger. All in all a rather watchable film but nothing spectacular to set it apart."

"It might hit those sociopolitical commentaries it delivers in your head with a sledgehammer. But aside from that, Killing Them Softly is a tightly paced mob thriller that manages to create more tension from much if its well-crafted dialogue, than most other films do from meaningless action sequences. It's a film that could be easily disposed for being so dialogue heavy, but once Andrew Dominik decides to show violence, he does it in a gloriously gritty and stylish matter that really manages "
