Killing Them Softly

Killing Them Softly
What it's about:

Jackie Cogan (Brad Pitt) is an enforcer hired to restore order after three dumb guys rob a Mob protected card game, causing the local criminal economy to collapse.

What the critics thought:

"It has a weird, buzzing, intense quality that has burrowed its way deep into my brain like some invasive sci-fi organism."
- Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com

"Trading in pleasures of a deliberately rarefied sort, writer-director Andrew Dominik's talky, character-rich genre piece largely short-circuits thrills to sketch a grimly funny portrait of thugs taking care of business, in every rotten sense of the word."
- Justin Chang, Variety

"While the cast is consistently watchable and on-point, Dominik disappoints as both scenarist and filmmaker."
- Alonso Duralde, The Wrap

"The writer-director becomes so intent on hammering home the parallels between economic decay, political disappointments and petty criminals, there is nothing soft, or subtle, about it. He should trust his audience more."
- Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
