4.0 out of 5 stars English mobsters turn sadism into performance art January 8, 2004
Format:DVD
Jon is a brutal gangster whose conscience is like an amputated limb--it's gone, but sometimes he thinks it is still there. As he maims and murders we learn little about Jon other than he lives in London, that he has a first name, and that he is a legbreaker, assassin, and apprentice sadist. Despite the thin biography, at the close of Killing Kind we know Jon.
He ain't pretty.
Director Paul Sorossy gives a taut, grim, and gritty glimpse into the lives of mobsters who transform violence into performance art. As a sadistic crime boss boasts, these men embrace their brutality.  Jon, played brilliantly by Andrew Howard, finds this difficult after he reconnects with childhood friends who are a reminder of a more innocent time. We don't get a lot of details about Jon's past, but the indications are it didn't involve torture. The story focuses on the present and the conflict Jon experiences as he is torn between his old comrades and his current terror mentors.
Set in the underworld of working class Britain, Killing Kind avoids the maudlin affectations Hollywood attributes to hitmen with mid-life crises. Forget any Road To Perdition-type father and son relationships: this is a tale of the devil and his particularly worthy disciple Jon. Director Sorossy manages to cram mayhem into almost every other scene yet it never comes across as gratuitous or cartoonish. Sorossy, who borrows heavily from director Michael Mann in a few of the more memorable and graphically violent scenes, makes certain the audience never forgets how repulsive Jon can be. Any sympathy Jon has generated evaporates with an ending that is both intelligent and disgusting.

4.0 out of 5 stars A TRUE WORK OF ART June 7, 2004
Format:DVD
A HIT MAN HAS A MIDLIFE CRISIS. HE THINKS OF LEAVING THE MOB AND LEADING A NORMAL LIFE. HAS PLENTY OF GOOD PLOT AND PLENTY OF GOOD ACTING TO SPARE, BUT THIS FILM COULD'VE USED SOME BETTER PACING. BUT, WHEN YOU PAY ATTENTION TO THE FILM'S CHARCTERS AND THE SINCERITY OF THE PERFORMANCES DISPLAYED IN THIS MOVIE, YOU'LL FORGET ALL ABOUT THIS FILM'S FLAWS. MOB MOVIE FANS SHOULD THOROUGHLY ENJOY THIS.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great and a little wierd July 18, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Loved this film. Wierd and wonderfull departure from the standerd mobster movie. Every character is a cipher with non mobsters being as interesting as the thugs. The most interesting moments are those involving the banal rather than the violent. The intensity and sureality of any moment is as great as and even surpases the run up to the climax. The acting is brave, and as another reviewer said, sincere, so much so that I feel that with the great dialogue and plotting these actors could make this book shien as well on satge as it does on film.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Killing Kind, worth watching February 21, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I have seen this movie three times and I still enjoy it. Jon, the main character is a handsome, brooding guy who hardly ever smiles. Although he is an assassin,he has a soft gentle side. And though it is a movie about killing it does not have gore, only screaming. It was well made.

2.0 out of 5 stars screenplay cheats a fine cast January 30, 2013
By .fgd
Format:DVD
This starts out as a fine British film but later devolves into the ludicrous.
The main character is a sadist, who kills on the instructions of a greater sadist, who has a whole sophisticated , intellectual , twisted psycology, which makes him a master manipulator.

Spoiler ahead although i'm just saving your time.....

The problem is he starts turning into a pussy after bumping into an old school chum. His wife too turns his heart into over-cooked spaghetti .This is a real cringe factor as the character is initially established as credible and appealing in a sort of cool Mr Jeckyll way and is well acted. It is just not possible for this man's pysche to turn as pink as a baby's or so fast. Remorse and over-sensitivity burden him although, fantastically,it doesn't stop him from slicing to death his chum's killer, with scalpels , without missing a beat. Naturally his boss thinks it won't do and turns him into a masochist which enables him leap off the cliffs of Dover before the credits roll
