And just because a movie makes you think, doesn't make it good.
Len Stoner
This film was evidently funded (in part) by the British Government (film board) and should serve as a reminder of why we should all be anarchists.
Electric Eclectic
Interesting and unique but a bit dissatisfying as the director seems to have left the interpretations up to the audience.

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.

As a British movie hound I have been watching all genres of British movie-making for 40 years. To appreciate this film, try watching the original version of "Wickerman" or any of the British horror films involving cults from the 60's and 70's. It was interesting to see a modern version of this style of storytelling. It works for those familiar with this style of British horror. If it's your first visit for such film-making, I understand your disdain. It is a developed appreciation. Good acting, good storytelling. It kept me in the dark asking questions til near the end, then the "Ahah" moment led me through the remainder of the film and made the ending less horrifying.

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 was an interesting movie. Very off beat. Make no mistake it is a horror movie and a little sick and twisted. I had read the description and its not a film about paranoia or anything like that. I don't want to ruin the movie for others so I won't give away the story. But, you'll need a strong stomach for this one and in the end you may still shake your head. I gave it three stars because it is so unusual. It was not my type of movie due to the nature of the film. Family drama? Really?

This film draws you in with its gritty look at two murder for hire ex-military men who need work badly. They have a list of three people they need to terminate, but by the second one they know they are involved with some very sinister people (victims and those hiring them). What follows is a macabre and disruptive series of events that leaves the viewer reeling with shock and questioning what exactly has been happening. Interesting and unique but a bit dissatisfying as the director seems to have left the interpretations up to the audience.

To sum up the movie into one sentence: You knowingly or unknowingly make a pact with evil when you murder for hire. The guys doing the hits were likable, funny friends and seemingly "good guys" just trying to get by. We don't know what the "job" that he is so reluctant to take is, and we just hope he will do the stupid job (whatever it is) and stop the screaming and work towards having a good life with wife and child. Discovering they are hit men is a shock and hard to make excuses for and we wonder (as they do) just what these people are doing to get hits put out on them. At first, when we get concrete knowledge that the targets are "bad people," the wounded hand guy comes off like a hero and an avenger of the innocent and the slain. We love him and cannot wait to see where, when and how his "righteous brutality" will play out next. But the fact of the matter is that whether or not the people he murdered were innocent or guilty, it was not his place to do what he was doing. The movie makes that clear by showing his deterioration mentally, physically and because he ultimately commits the same horrible act for which he was murdering others. His metamorphosis became complete because of the outrageous moral ambiguity of what he was doing; he did not even look very surprised, saddened, shocked or horrified about stabbing his own child to death (God forbid). During their second meeting, the white-haired guy (the cutter/pact maker) said that THEY were looking to "restructure things" or something like that. I think that comment was a cryptic message about what would ultimately happen to the soul of the wounded hand man because of the pact he inadvertently made and because of the murders he was committing.Read more ›
