  Don't believe the hype

| | See all AgentX's reviews (1)

From the front of the bluray it seems that this film has nothing but four and five star reviews. Don't believe it. Me and a friend sat through the entire thing saying to each other "It's got to get better soon, right?" Wrong. It has to be the dullest film with the most laughable ending imaginable that satisfies nothing. Terrible example of what British filmmakers can do. So many better things out there, seek them out instead

  Decent British Chiller

I must admit i had my doubts about this one but after watching it i was a little surprised. It is more like a thriller/horror than anything else the actors were decent enough in their roles i remember neil maskell from the football factory and he was good in this. I thought some of the comments made about the ending rung true in some respects although it seemed a little predictable to me. Overall i thought this was a decent movie considering it was made on a shoe string budget. Give it a go i think it is one of those types of marmite movies you either like it or loathe it.

  Amateurish and incomprehensible

Stuck with this to the bitter end hoping it would get better, it didn't. It had 10mins near the end that were watchable, but the end made no sense whatsoever. 1st 45mins was about a arguing man and wife.
I hope never to mistakenly watch a film by this director again!!!2

  Kill List - The Best British Film of the Year

| | See all GGfletch's reviews (10)

Documenting the nightmarish journey of two hitmen, Kill List confidently straddles the visceral end of genre filmmaking and the gritty strata of social realism, showcasing the mercurial skills of up-and-coming British film director Ben Wheatley. Buoyed by the critical acclaim for his feature length debut, Down Terrace, Wheatley's second film is a slow-building, ominous creep-out that will stay with you long after the final reel.

Teaming social realism with strains of the seventies conspiracy thriller and British horror, Kill List isn't just confirmation of Ben Wheatley's talent; it's an affirmation of the merits of genre filmmaking. Terrifying and traumatic, it's the best British film of the year and yet another reminder of why the UK Film Council shouldn't have been disbanded.

Kill List is a very strange film. Not in a bad way though. I saw this with two friends who didnt like it purely because by the end they didnt understand it. I on the other hand enjoyed it thoroughly because it keeps making you ask questions. As an audience we shouldnt just sit back and numbly watch a film, we should be thinking about what we are watching. This is what you get from Kill List.

The film is obviously dark because of its subject matter but it is done in a good structure. The beggining of the film shows family life of two ex-soldiers and refurs to events that we as the audience do not understand and then after the first 20 minutes or so we are shown the ugly side of the protagonists life as he and his friend take on a list of people they need to kill. The film centres around "Jay" and so during the film you start to wonder what exactly has happened to him to make him like he is. The film can be quite violent but even these scenes had me asking "Why?".

That is why I think this film works well because it keeps you thinking and to be honest even now I have not fully unravelled the story in my head.

Well directed and very well acted. Much better than a lot of hitman films. Not a film for the passive viewer.

  "..GOOD BRITISH THRILLER.."

| | See all sdx800's reviews (1814)

This is actually a pretty decent movie, a good British thriller with a clever and deeply twisted story as you will soon discover once you reach the end, the ending is very debatable and leaves the film very open minded, some people maybe a little confused as it does need some serious thought as to what the makers were trying to put across. Otherwise this is a very well crafted film with great performances from the cast and some extremely violent scenes! Only watch it if this is your type of movie. There are a few good extras too and the picture quality is better than the DVD.

Ignore the bizarre rave reviews: this is one of the worst films of the year, a pretentious, self-satisfied and appallingly violent (not in a good way) 'thriller'. The Wicker Man ending is hilarious.

  Dark, Twisted, brutal and unmissable.

I'd read several reviews regarding this film and it seemed it was marmite to viewers. I have been a film buff, of all genres for many years and I can safely say I've never seen anything quite like it. One reviewer nailed it when he said it was Mike Leigh meets the Whicker Man.

Low rent hitman Jay's one last job to pay off his jacuzzi takes him on an uncompromising, twisted decent into hell. Throughout the low key opening there is an underlying atmosphere of foreboding terror, due to the unsettling editing and score. An astonishing peice of cinema which will stay with you a long time afterwards.
