Editorial Reviews

Eight months after a disastrous hit job in Kiev left him physically and mentally scarred, ex-soldier turned contract killer Jay (Neil Maskell) is pressured by his partner Gal (Michael Smiley), into taking a new assignment. But as they descend into the bizarre, disturbing world of the contract, Jay's reality begins to unravel until fear and paranoia send him reeling towards a horrifying point of no return. From director Ben Wheatley (Down Terrace), KILL LIST is a mind-blowing psychological horror film that plunges into the heart of human darkness.

Customer Reviews

Very slow start but gets better as it moves along.
Tom Smith
There were too many obscure plot points weren't developed or were left unanswered.
Robert Giordano
And just because a movie makes you think, doesn't make it good.

I like strange movies, but this one was "Really Strange." I guess I just didn't appreciate how this guy won out to become a hired killer. Don't really know why I disliked this movie like I did. Maybe you need to see it for yourself and make your own judgement.

It's easy to see why Ben Wheatley's sophomore feature Kill List won over British critics but found it much harder to woo audiences: it's a film with a lot going for it that really doesn't pay off and doesn't stand up to much examination. It's a film of surface pleasures, but of a very low budget indie kind - no big effects, set pieces or glossy visuals but strong characterisation, believable dialogue and excellent performances that give the illusion of eavesdropping on real life, all in the service of a genre that has long since turned into near-parody with over-stylised wisecracks and philosophising and comic book violence.

Starting out as a slice of life kitchen sink drama, becoming a thriller and gradually developing into a horror film, Neil Maskell is malingerer is persuaded by wife MyAnna Buring to get back to work with old army mate Michael Smiley because there's nothing left in the bank account. The work is well paid and local: kill three men in the UK. But these two don't behave like typical movie hitmen, more like commercial travellers, and it's that sense of the everyday observed that gives the film much of its power. Maskell argues with his wife in front of friends at dinner parties, gets pissed off when his credit card is declined at a hotel and finds corporate downsizing immoral while killing for a man who demands the contract be signed in blood. That's not the first hint that things are going to get a bit wickerish, but when his victims thank him even when he sets to work on them with a hammer, it's clear there's more going on than meets the eye. Or so it appears.

The reality is that there's actually less going on than meets the eye, but it's played in such a naturalistic style that it starts to convince you that it just might turn into something really special.

This is an independent horror drama from director and writer Ben Wheatley who has worked with comedians Steve Coogan and Jonny Vegas in the past, but this one does not have a foot in the realm of comedy. It is about two old army buddies, who decided to become hit men after their country no longer needed them. We join Jay (Neil Marshall) a year after a bungled job in Kiev. His acerbic wife Shell (played with brilliant complexity by MyAnna Buring) tells him all their money is gone, as he has not done any `work' for a year. He meanwhile only wants to cure his back in their hot tub; she insists he is making it all up and there is nothing wrong with him.

Then his old mucker turns up, Gal (Michael Smiley). They are having a dinner party and Gal has brought his latest flame Fiona, a mysterious one indeed who seems to enjoy pentangle like symbols. Well after a mass row, Gal invites Jay to go back to work. They agree and set off to meet their client. He gives them a hit list that includes a priest a librarian and an MP. They are not told their crimes and so Jay lets his imagination fill in the blanks. He is still traumatised from past experiences and seems to find some form of mental rehabilitation through inflicting violence. This he goes at with some very worrying gusto indeed.

What unfolds gets darker and darker as the violence escalates and things are seen in their true light. This is one from the school of seventies horror with a sort of cross between the classic `The Wicker Man'and Peter Fonda's lost classic `Race with the Devil' . There is plenty of disturbing violence, language that a docker would baulk at and some brilliantly tense scenes. The soundtrack works too, even though at first I felt it was trying to be too spooky with echoey voices all over the place.

This movie feels like the filmmakers liked their nifty ending, then shabbily constructed a meandering hour and half of "story" to justify it. The movie starts slow and stays that way for the majority of the time. I guess there's a "natural" manner to the proceedings, but that also means dull and unexceptional. The movie changes in genres too, shifting from a mundane domestic drama to an occult horror film. Again, some may appreciate that unconventional storytelling, but to me it felt very lazy, inconsistent and confusing.

Like so many bad horror movies, this film has one good scare, and you must suffer through the entire length to get there. While it's ultimately a good idea with decent execution, it's also entirely predictable too.

I saw a screening of this last night and was very impressed. While some other reviewers here have criticized the pacing, I didn't have a problem with it. As long as I'm into the characters, I don't mind how long a story takes to unfold, and I was engrossed by the people in this film.

It's something of a hybrid film, a gritty British gangster movie that slowly morphs into something more horrific. Nearly every element of the production is fantastic, from the acting to the score to the cinematography. It is shockingly violent at times, at other moments thrilling, and, surprisingly, quite funny upon occasion.

What gives me pause is the writing. It isn't bad by any stretch of the imagination: the characters are fully fleshed out, the story is compelling, and everything moves along nicely. Where the trouble comes is in the ending. You might have heard some buzz about it being a shocker, and it sort of was. Part of the reason for that, though, is because it receives the faintest wisp of a set up in all the story's prior events. While I certainly felt the movie was building up to something akin to what the ending was, and I recognized moments when clues were being dropped, I was never able to put them together.

As the credits rolled, I wished the theater would start the film again from the beginning, so that I could apply my newfound knowledge to the same scenes I had just witnessed and possibly make more sense of the whole thing. I believe a second viewing would help me answer the question:

Was this film pretty great? A nasty little genre thriller, clever in how it sets itself up, never holding the audience's hand too tightly?
