A little gem of a black comedy
7 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Killers is a little gem of a black comedy. Just over an hour long, it features smart performances from its cast of four. The tale of two misfit hit men stalking their prey and then attempting to carry out the contract, the performances of the two lead actors playing the would-be killers are excellent. Matthew Jure is particularly impressive as the amusingly hapless Mike, who seems particularly ill-suited to murder, with a good performance also from Ian Attfield as Sean, who shifts between calm, organised and menacing and being a bit of a liability. The dialogue between the two is realistic and comical, owing much to Tarantino's "Royale with cheese" school of chit-chat about stuff but carried off nicely. Shot neatly in black and white, the evident low budget doesn't spoil the film - there are not many locations but why would there be? It is the second half of the film where the story comes to life, with more sides to Mike and Sean revealed and strong supporting performances from Anna Acton as Mike's over-bearing girlfriend Danielle and Colin Holt as the confused victim of the pair. With several twists at the end, Carlo Ortu's film is an enjoyable piece of independent cinema.
