I had looked forward to watching the KIll List based on several reviews I'd come across but was left thoroughly disappointed. The film is rather a convoluted mess as it doesn't know what it wants to be. Some may say it was trying to merge different genres together, but if that was the case, and it may well be, it wasn't able to do it effectively.
It's a domestic/social drama half of the time although the two male characters don't feel believable and come over more as caricatures. Intermittantly it goes into violent thriller territory and despite the graphic nature of it's violence, again it doesn't feel authentic and feels contrived. Moreover, it's not very well plotted, it leaves you more confused than intrigued. Then finally it moves into horror, which it manages to do best of all but it's at the very end and far too late to make any difference. I can't help but think that perhaps it should have played that hand from the start. Okay, it may not have been anything quite as original as it was trying to be, but at least it would have been a better film.
