Kill List

JOY REVIEW

Kill List is really hard to describe, except to say the word creepy.  This is not my kind of movie. Part of it is almost impenetrable in terms of the language. It’s in English, but it’s with heavy Irish brogue, nearly unintelligible, and to a certain extent, the plot is also hard to describe. We’ve got two guys who seem to be buds. One of them has been out of work for eight months. His Swedish, “hottie” wife has been yelling at him. It turns out she is in the Swedish Special Services. The two old friends turned out to have been in the Special Services as well, and one of them shows up with kind of an odd woman and convinces the guy to go back and take a job doing something nefarious. I mean I can describe it until the cows come home, however it is a creepy movie. It’s very bloody, but it’s got some genuine tension in it. It’s well-made crap. I mean, what else can I tell you. If you like this kind of movie, this is actually fairly good. It’s not my kind of movie, but I found myself strangely involved in it. So for that I’ll give it three stars.
