Killing Them Softly (2012)
Half a Movie
As stated in previous reviews, Killing Them Softly starts good and looks good but after the meeting with Mickey the movie seems to be written by different script writers and starts to fail.
As a point in note - it doesn't take someone with too much perception to realise the glasses at the restaurant Mikey is drinking from change not only quantity of liquid in them, but the set designers couldn't even remember how many beers, or cocktails where on the table between any 2 camera shots. This alone (which required me to skip back 30 seconds just so that I could believe what my eyes were telling me) was enough to warrant nothing more than a 5 star rating.
Another annoyance was Mikey's character doesn't even do anything other than fill in 30 minutes of boring dialogue that serves nothing to the story and has no point except to give the whole reason of the title of the movie - which Jackie doesn't even stick to, so even less reason Mikey's character should even be in the movie.
The movie seems short, and at the end of the movie you get the feeling that you missed half the movie, or the scrip writers had half a movie and filled the rest in with Mikey's dialogue scenes.
Really it's just a badly written movie that had potential.
