Good indie action film
28 March 1999 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

Killing Time is an excellent action movie with clever writing and some gut-bursting black humor between the silenced reports of the female assassin's Glock pistol. I gave it a 9 out of 10 - the cinematography works and the acting is good - it would have gotten the full score if it possessed less gratuitous vulgarity (like The Pigeon Egg strategy, Killing Time greatly improves as a film as it rolls on - don't let the beginning frighten you off).
