Kill List

An ex-soldier turned hitman, reeling from a recently botched job, takes on a new assignment at the insistence of his partner. Hired by a mysterious businessman, the 3 charges promise a big payoff but instead lead the two men down a dark and deadly path. Ben Wheatley's "Kill List" is a vile, senseless, and witless movie lacking any sense of style and storytelling technique. I am not resistant to violence in the movies, but rather towards violence for violence sake, and watching this reprehensible rubbish made me physically sick. This is the kind of film where brain dead burnouts walk out of it exclaiming, "Whoa, my favorite part was when that dude got his head bashed in with a hammer!"
