A ClassicBy GaryI (785 reviews) from March, Cambs , 27 Sep 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]The best film I've seen in awhile. A gangster film with a difference. It can be compared to Tarantino at his best in its structure as it concentrates on conversations between the various characters as Brad Pitt's hitman searches for the men who robbed a mob poker game and negotiates with his employers over how the job is to be done. It has some brutal violence but those scenes are isolated and the film never descends into gratuitousness. Destined to be a classic I think and highly recommended viewing from me.

Mutton dressed as lambBy MrBuffy (8 reviews) , 07 Nov 2013This is a very simple story, told in graphically-violent detail, and made up to be some kind of 'commentary' on the American political system. The all-star cast is wasted, particularly poor Sam Shepard who has one line. Playing politician's speeches on the radio and TV while characters discuss the criminal activities is what passes for intellectual in Hollywood these days, it seems. Slow-mo doesn't make violence cool...that went out with the Matrix and Lock,Stock. Another duff movie from Mr. Pitt.
Truly Forgettable...By yanbart (135 reviews) , 05 Nov 2013Hmmmm as I sit her writing this, several weeks after watching it, I can hardly remember it which speaks volumes as I love Pitt, Liotta and Gandolfini - a Star Studded cast... Obviously therefore truly forgettable I'm sorry to say...
DO NOT RENTBy DarrenM1975 (5 reviews) , 05 Nov 2013I am amazed just how poor thia film is. Nothing about it. Like watching paint dry! I wish I could find a positive... Brad Pitt plays a good charactor but thats it.
Killed Me SoftlyBy Crusher01 (8 reviews) , 01 Nov 2013Brad Pitt gave a good performance as usual. But i found myself drifting off during the film as it did not keep my attention. Brilliant Killing of Ray Liotta though !!!
Disappointed with itBy niftysixty4 (6 reviews) , 26 Oct 2013Brad Pitt and James Gandolfini are the only good thing in this movie. The rest of the cast and the storyline are weak. A waste of an evening!!
