"Red herrings" that are dead in the water ..........
26 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here's an idea. If you are going to load a "who done it?" with intriguing suspects, don't give away the obvious murderer in the first reel, and then continue to cloud the water with "red herrings". Unfortunately that is the sad case with "The Soft Kill". Thus suspense and logic take a back seat to sex scenes, some of which border on being X rated material. I really like the late Brion James, and here he has quite a meaty part. It's just a shame that the script isn't fully developed. This plays more like an episode of "Columbo" than a mystery thriller, because like "Columbo", everyone knows right from the start who done it. - MERK
