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

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- March 2013 (44 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 37min First Viewing This is an important movie, and director Andrew Dominik never wants you to forget that. Why else would he pound it into your skulls? The self-importance of the flick get's pretty laughable (A Pre-President Obama is seen several times speaking, semi-connecting to the plot) and distracts from Brad Pitt and what could've been a great character."

"August 8 "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." This was a pretty good movie. The acting was good, it had an intellegent script and I really liked that this movie takes place during the 2008 Election Day. It's no masterpiece, but it's still a very underrated movie."

"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
