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.

America's not a Country, it's just a business...By YouCanCallMeMarty (11 reviews) from Middlesbrough , 23 May 2013David Chase would be proud if this were an episode of the much beloved Sopranos, not only because of Dominik's obvious wannabeishness and inclusion of several Sopranos cast members but because its got real balls, artistic integrity, an overwhelming sense of menace, a stunning soundtrack and great performances all around.
I would not watch this again!By a customer , 23 May 2013It was lower than my expectations. I can't even remember what it was about now, it was that boring! Plot could have been better. Yeah, Leon's better.
Real life - it's not all actionBy a customer , 22 May 2013Ordinary people doing terrible things to each other - great! Takes the Sopranos theme and slows it down to real life. Some bits are boring which is the point.
Worst movie everBy a customer , 21 May 2013Absolute garbage! I'd rather watch paint drying. The worst rip off ever of Tarantino's movies. The only use for the disc is as a table coaster.
energy injection neededBy a customer , 21 May 2013Slow, very slow! Good cast & had high expectations for this, but fell asleep half way through. For me all films should be that good, I cant fall asleep!
