Killing Them Softly really was decent but just didn't do anything for me. It just had no characters that ever seemed interesting or likable. And having just watched Dredd 3D (another meh, but fun meh!), Ray Liota's slo-mo death scene made me laugh thinking back to Dredd. Very talky, dirty, grimy, somewhat violent, well shot movie with not much oomph behind it. Meh...
Then Dredd was just silly fun cheeseball 80s style action. Fun, popcorn. Nothing more, nothing less.
