Killing Them Softly Review - Solid Crime ThrillerOct 5, 2012News I think at the heart of Andrew Dominick's latest 'Killing Them Softly' lies a mirror of the economic situation that crippled the U.S. economy in the past decade. We are nothing more than crooks seems to be the message put forth in this ultra violent and stylish thriller where Brad Pitt's mob enforcer is tasked with taking out the dirty laundry for the high and mighty be it corporate scumbags, lawyers or mob bosses.The movie's main asset is the wonderful camera work with some astounding visual flourishes set behind many scenes. Sample the scenes where in glorious slow-mo Brad Pitt carries out killings or the one where in almost darkly comic fashion, one of his associates sets fire to a car only to get run over by the car rolling backwards.The other amazing thing about the movie are the dialogues; sharp and witty which flow so beautifully between conversations allowing you to catch some real gems of one-liners. Other than Brad Pitt, the rest of the cast includes such good actors as James Gandolfini, Richard Jenkins, Ray Liotta, Sam Shepard and Ben Mendelhson who all give great performances in smaller roles.'Killing Them Softly' is a solid crime thriller with a great sense of dark humour and good performances. Definitely not to be missed. Danish Bagdadi Killing Them Softly Review - Solid Crime Thriller Oct 5, 2012
