Killing Them Softly (2012)


Killing Them Softly (2012)

It was one of the worst movies that I have seen all year and the worst Brad Pitt movie that I have ever seen. It should have been called killing the audience quickly. It was literally that horrible. I almost asked for a refund on my ticket. Thinking about it now, I should have gotten a refund on my ticket. You would have to pay me to watch that movie again.

With as excellent of a cast as this movie had, you would think they could do no wrong. Even if the storyline is bad, the actors will make it better right? Wrong! It was almost as if they tried to make it bad.

Scenes with Brad Pitt were bearable to mediocre. Scenes without Brad Pitt made me almost physically sick.

James Gandolfini was an absolute wreck and Ray Liotta looked like death.

The movie was successful in portraying drug addicts, alcoholics, and overall skuzzy people in a very realistic way. When you weren’t watching people cussing up a storm, drinking themselves to death, getting stoned out of their minds, getting shot in slow motion, or beaten to a bloody pulp, then all they were doing was blabbering back and forth to one another. The majority of the dialogue of the movie was diarrhea of the mouth except for when Brad Pitt or Ray Liotta was talking.

It was almost as if Brad Pitt was in a different movie than everybody else and they edited him in to their train wreck of a film to try to make it better. Instead of actually making it better, it just gave you a couple moments break from being terrible whenever Pitt was in a scene.

Do yourself a favor and stay far away from this movie. Save your time and money by not seeing it. I wish I had.

I rate this movie a 2 on a scale of 1-10.

Buy, rent, or, run?  Run.

  1. Seriously, when is the last time you saw a good Brad Pitt movie? A River Ran Through It?

    • Moneyball was excellent, Inglourious Basterds (awful title but surprisingly awesome movie) is one of my favorites, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was good, Ocean’s Thirteen was good, Troy was really good, Ocean’s Eleven was good, He was fun to watch in Snatch, he was great in Fight Club, Meet Joe Black was okay, Sleepers was a pretty solid movie, he and Bruce Willis were fun to watch in 12 Monkeys, he was funny in True Romance, and that brings us back to A River Runs Through it.
