Not a bad killing
22 December 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

To make a killing is an uneven film, is the way the stories formulated. But that really isn't a problem. It knows where it's going. I had been wanting to see this film for a while, and though not everything lived up to my expectations, I still found it quite engrossing viewing. The movie's title refers to our hero who's forced to kill these hoodlums, after they kill his girlfriend and her parents. This hard working university student, Damon, with everything in front of him, needs something else outside of this. He hooks up with these hoodlums, these "Wild Boys" who've been breaking into houses around the area, including Damon's. Later on, out in the woods, the hoodlums share stories, get drunk and have sex with two girls they pick up, one of them who becomes Damon's girlfriend. Damon, pie eyed, having the time of his life, spouts out more information than he should have. This is valuable information for the these thieves who break into Sondra's parents house, where a q and a hostage, torture scene begins. This is truly the most remarkably intense part of the film. The killing of Sondra out in the woods, is graphic too, with Damon, having escaped, after killing all by one of the hoodlums, the leader Terry. Now Damon is living back in the beautiful city of Sydney, trying to his life back dealing with the overwhelming guilt, whatever, and losing sleep over. His pestering Dad is no help, one of those fathers who's really not satisfied with second best, while his mother is more helpful, giving her son some space. And guess who's moved in just across the street, now crippled. Damon has to finally face his demons and end this, proving we all have the killer inside of us.
