Editorial Reviews

Eight months after a botched job in Kiev, Jay (Neil Maskell) is an out-of-work hitman with no job, money, health insurance and a wife constantly on his case. But when his business partner Gal (Michael Smiley) comes over for dinner and pressures Jay into taking a new assignment, Jay quickly finds himself back in the game with the promise of a big payoff after three assassinations. Although the hits start off without incident, soon things begin to unravel and Jay's paranoia reveals itself as he is plunged into the heart of darkness. The second feature from British director Ben Wheatley (DOWN TERRACE) KILL LIST (which premiered at the 2011 SXSW Film Festival) features incredibly natural rich performances, jet black humor and nail-biting suspense that work to keep the audience always off-guard. Moving from kitchen-sink drama to character study to crime thriller, KILL LIST ends up at something more fundamentally profound and wonderfully disturbing.

I'm slightly phased by the number of people who say that they don't understand what's going on in this movie.

The film starts as a sort of gritty family drama but takes a sinister turn when the girlfriend of one of the main characters goes to the bathroom and does something... unexpected. That's a big clue as to where the film is going and it continues in that direction when the main characters meet the man contracting them and when the "victims" don't act as you'd think they would,

If you're the sort of person who likes simple things and needs to have anything more complicated than I love Lucy explaining to you then this movie isn't for you. Note that there's extreme violence.

It's a straightforward occult / horror film and in my very humble opinion the direction the film is going to go in is clearly telegraphed from the time the lady goes to the bathroom.

It may not be for everyone but I thought it was a good movie. I'd have had a different ending though.

Wheatley's "Kill List" is a cruel, scary film. Not the scariest I've ever seen, but still excellent.

Two vets of some nonspecific conflicts are poor and decide to supplement their income by taking up some free lance work; carrying out hits for a particularly odd local eccentric.

Jay (Neil Maskell) and Gal (Michael Smiley) turn in some great performances as guys who aren't foreign to chaos. Jay is having trouble meeting his wife's financial expectations, and his son Sam suffers from their constant arguments. His friend finally convinces Jay to become a hit man. His wife's friend leaves a strange mark on their mirror.

As things get more and more brutal, it becomes clear to both of them that something more sinister is going on. The end is, eh, hard to take.
Extremely well done. Recommended to any horror fan.

It's ok, but it's no "classic". You know what's gonna happen, it's just a matter of the other shoe dropping... The ending ends up being a bit anticlimactic and rushed, given the length of the rest of the movie. Should've had more emphasis on the cult and what they were up to...expounding on those characters would've made the film much more interesting.

But, it's still a pretty good show.

England, The Present: Jay (Neil Maskell) is an ex-serviceman living a life of quiet seclusion with his wife Shel (MyAnna Buring) and young son, Sam (Harry Simpson) in a suburban domicile on a non-descript housing estate. Unable to work due to a traumatic workplace incident, the financial and emotional pressures of Jay’s unemployment are slowly beginning to take their toll on the family. But then the couple receive a visit from Jay’s former comrade-in-arms, Gal (Michael Smiley) who has an offer of employment for Jay which will require the particular set of skills which both men have acquired in their professional lives.

I’ve been as deliberately nebulous as possible in summarizing the inciting incident of Ben Wheatley’s "Kill List" because, frankly, much of the pleasure of the film lies in the slowly unfurled and beautifully judged revelations of its characters’ backgrounds and personalities, as well as the various twists and turns of its plot. Frankly, with "Kill List", the less you know about the plot and characters going in, the better. Suffice it to say that it’s a supremely well-made and brilliantly off-kilter dark British thriller which I file in the “must-see” category if you’re a lover of genre film-making and great cinema in general.

Ben Wheatley’s vision of England is of an ambiguously disturbing world of darkness, alienation, violence and paranoia which is barely concealed behind A relatively innocuous facade of cosy domestic fixtures, strip-lit motorways, bland travel-hotels and matey bonhomie and black humour – and he renders it with meticulous precision.

The performances are frankly outstanding.

One of THE best films I've ever seen and one of my favorites. Fantastic hit man slow burner that evolves into pure nightmare fuel. Highly recommend.

SPOILERS:

An unusual mixture of genres, "Kill List" is a moody film about a hitman who takes on a series of assignments where each of those that he kills thanks him and tell him it was an honor. This, needless to say, is disquieting to our hitman who gradually realizes his assignment has some surreal turns to it.

"Kill List" is an ambitious, moody and, sometimes meandering, thriller that combines the genre with horror as it takes a left turn into territory of "The Wicker Man". "Kill List" isn't for everyone but it is a pretty powerful film from director Ben Wheatley who tends to take material that could be conventionally explored and give it a unique twist.

END OF SPOILERS:

I enjoyed "Kill List" but this moody thriller may not be for everyone as it's not a straight forward, easy to digest or explain mixture of thriller and horror film that crosses two genres quite effectively.

The special features who purchase the blu-ray (as opposed to renting the title but I would suggest a rental first to see if this appeals to you) are commentary track by the director, a second commentary track featuring the two leads,and interviews with the cast and director discussing the making of the film.

Unconventional to say the least, "Kill List" is a moody thriller that builds its tension. If you're looking for a more traditional Hollywood style thriller, "Kill List" is probably not for you but, if you're looking for a challenging, interesting thriller with an unconventional mixture of genres you might find yourself ready for the "Kill List".
