Killing Them Softly
Saw it earlier tonight. Wasn't sure whether to put it in this thread or the 'meh' thread, but I'm not a tough critic so in here it goes.
Brad Pitt was great, as was expected of him in a role like this. The violence was grisly and brutal (not Saw-esque, but it was pretty up there for an action flick).
What I didn't like about it was that the whole movie moved very slowly. It wasn't even 2 hours long, but the scenes felt like they took forever. Another thing I did not like was the constant background dialogue of Obama & GW. I understand how it tied in with the plot of the movie, but they just overdid it. Every time there was a TV or radio in the setting, I had to listen to their goddamn speeches.
Overall, I'd give it a B/B-.
