Killers Anonymous (2019)
User ReviewsReview this title
All of that aside, I think Ive had about as much "inclusion as I can bear. I, a minority, a female, not not exactly "straight" as well, enjoy a *bit* of inclusivity, however, does EVERY movie just HAVE to have ALL those things? The movie starts out with a *token* quite vulgar minority lesbian (Jessica Alba), then the "badass" of the movie being yet another *token* over the top ultraviolent woman, and ends with a new *token* badass black woman running the show, taking over from yet (you guessed it) another woman. Other than the behind the scenes guy (Gary Oldman) all the other cast comprises of white males. And guess what? They are ALL killed. This tokenism and lesbians/women/minorities is getting old REAL fast! Theres nothing wrong with ANY of those things inherently, but it has to be in almost every single movie now? And in movies like this where it has almost every single tokenism balled into one movie becoming more and more prevalent, Im starting to get sick of it even faster.. Keep in mind, this is coming from a minority female that fits somewhere in the rainbow spectrum, that should say a LOT.
If I were you, I wouldnt waste my time on this movie. Its an hour and 37min I cant get back..
A group of killers meets in a sort of an Al-Anon for killers. Someone has tried to assassinate the American President on a visit to London, when suddenly, he staggers into the meeting wounded. I'm not going any further because it gets worse. Of the unlucky cast the only standouts are Tommy Flanagan and Rhyon Nicole Brown. The rest should try to have this film deleted from their list of credits. Gary Oldman escapes intact since his part is so small.
A truly awful movie.
3/10 *** - Website no longer prints my star rating.
And yes, I realise this is supposed to be a movie review and not a Gary Oldman review but trust me when I say... this is for the best.
My suggestion: watch the first scene (Oldman & Alba) if you really have nothing better to do with your time, but do yourself a BIG favour and skip the rest of the movie. It doesn't progress... it turns to "WHY!?! WHY on earth would someone waste its time and resources on this".
2/10 AVOID! - Would be 1 if not for McInnerny (Calvin), Flanagan and first 3-5 minutes (Oldman & Alba) scene.
No film called 'Killers Anonymous' about a group of hitmen telling their stories should ever be close to this dull. It's almost impressive that they managed to achieve that. Throw in the fact that the two big names the movie managed to get, Alba and Gary Oldman, went entirely to waste. Their characters added zero interest to the film incredibly.
Near the end the movie tries to get tricky and complicated but by that point you've already been bored into submission and no longer care. I'm not exaggerating when I say there isn't a single intriguing or watchable character in this movie. Don't be fooled by a couple of big names in the cast, this is pretty much a complete misfire and one to be avoided.
I get fed up with all those who are so negative and critical about most things. Just relax and chill
