User Reviews

The heist of a life-time. The only thing that went wrong was that everyone is out for themselves and a bank full of hostages is caught in the crossfire.
16 October 1998 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Killing Zoe, I would say, is a classic. I saw it in the English version and usually I really don't like subtitles. This movie made me reconsider this. From Prostitution, to drugs, to money, to betrayal, this movie has it all. With all of the Pulp Fictions and Jackie Browns out there, it is good to see a change of pace. Roger Avery has definitely stepped out of Tarantino's shadow and stepped up to the plate as a writer and Director. A lot of movies like this would have one or two big names, but this movie took on new-comers Eric Stoltz, Julie Delpy, and Jean-Hughes Anglade. By far, a movie that will be remembered. The only negative about this movie is that it didn't hit theaters in the US.
