"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

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

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
View all Killing Them Softly reviews
When their poker game is knocked off by petty thieves, the Mob calls in their best enforcer, Jackie Cogan, to make things right. Under the eye of a mysterious driver, Jackie must track down and punish those responsible for the heist. His assignment is complicated by those he comes up against along the way - an aging, drunken hit man, some bumbling local gangsters, and the ladies’ man who ran the ill-fated game.
Release date: 30 November 2012

My Movie Journal - 2013 *Spanish* (closed list) (57 movies items)

" MATALOS SUAVEMENTE (Kill them softly) January 04 No me gusto. La trama no tiene sustancia. Quiere llegar a alguna parte pero no lo logra. La participación de Gandolfini, prescindible, su personaje no sirvió para nada. La de Ray Liotta... triste, podrían haber puesto a cualquier actor ahí. Y Brad Pitt haciéndose el maton, no me lo creí. Lo bueno: La escena en la que matan a Frankie, eso no me lo vi venir!! Y las escenas en cámara lenta. Lo malo: Se me hizo muy larga. Lo feo: El person"

From Best to Worst: Brad Pitt (48 movies items)

"Killing Them Softly is a darkly comic, visceral thriller that doubles as a cautionary tale on capitalism, whose message is delivered with sledgehammer force."

Movies I Like (That I Might Not Watch Again) (9 movies items)

"Director: Andrew Dominik Plot: Jackie Cogan is an enforcer hired to restore order after three dumb guys rob a Mob protected card game, causing the local criminal economy to collapse. Looking back, I probably overrated this movie by a fair margin. I don't remember be overly entertained by it, and it was a bit of a drag despite the competent technical presentation. I might watch it again, but I certainly would not find myself buying it."

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

"Many people apparently have an issue with the pacing of this film. I works for me, personally. Sure the trailer is very misleading. I presents itself as an action film, when it really isn't. Just keep that in mind before you purchase your ticket. "
