Could have been a classic
16 July 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I rented this movie mainly on the strength of the cover image of a lycra clad Kendra Torgan holding two pistols. In the tradition of 'B' movie video packaging,she of course never wears this outfit in the movie. However it's a film which could have been much better. The director Bharat Nalluri, like so many in the wake of 'Reservoir Dogs' attempts to pad out the film with dialogue between the characters which really adds nothing to the plot. Tarantino can carry this device off with aplomb, but not the director of this movie. 'Killing Time' feels like a 15 minute festival short which was at the last minute padded out to make a movie. The lead actress Kendra Torgan is not bad as the invulnerable Italian assassin, but her obvious impunity to any kind of harm removes any kind of suspense from this movie. Just like an episode of 'Alias' or 'VIP', you know that the beautiful heroine is not going to pick up a scratch and leave a pile of male bodies in her wake. When she is in a bath, she hears one of the incompetent morons hired to kill her moving outside. Now a genuine master of 'B' movie sleaze like Albert Pyun or Cirio H Santiago would have had Korgan leaping out of the bath and taking out her attacker naked. In this movie, in the space of under a minute, she manages to get out of the bath, dry herself completely, get fully dressed, climb into the roof cavity & surprise the guy in the space of a few seconds!. This scene alone exhibits the feeling I have that the filmmakers did not really know what target audience to aim for. Killing Time tries to be intellectual and an exploitationer at the same time and fails to be either.
