Who’S It For? Do you like mob movies? Guys who talk big, and carry bigger guns? Do you constantly wish these films would reflect America’s economic situation? Yup, this one is for you.
It takes some pretty big balls to be this on the nose with a film’s plot, and its timely backdrop. Luckily, in the world of balls, Dominik and Pitt are big ones.
Killing Them Softly is completely blatant, in fact it’s so on the nose, that it’s elbow deep up the nose, digging for gold and finding bats in the cave.
