Some interesting moments, but weak execution overall
12 April 2016 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

THE KILL HOLE is an attempt to do something different to your usual American war flick. This one is more of a psychological thriller about the trauma felt by combat soldiers and their struggles to adapt to normal society afterwards. Unfortunately, it's a low budget movie and one that suffers from a lack of incident, decent writing, and strong characters. The first half an hour is very dull and the story only picks up a little once the main character goes on his mission.

From there on in, weak execution lets the movie down. It should be very tense, moving, and dramatic, but it never is. I wasn't drawn into the tale despite the obvious merits it has. The unknown cast don't really bring the story alive either, other than Billy Zane who has been brought in for name value alone. Although THE KILL HOLE offers something a little different to your usual B-movie action flick, there's no denying it just isn't a very good film.
