~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

Kill List (2011)

Starring: Neal Maskell, Michael Smiley, MyAnna Burning
Director: Ben Wheatley

Two hit men take on a job with a promise of a big payout. Each hit plunges them in a dark and sinister world

My Take:
I cant really say much about the film without giving things away.
The first part moves very slowly as it deals with the strained relationship between the main character and his wife due to money issues after he botched a hit nearly a year previous. The second part has the main character and his friend get the job and start taking out the people on the list. On this list are a priest, a snuff film ring, and pagan worshipers. The third part is a free for frenzy of horror as the main character fights for his life.
The amazing score and frenetic editing helps set the up the disjointed feel of the movie. And it is full of realistic gore and violence.
This movie requires the viewer to think and pay attention to details. The pieces are there for you to figure out and interpret.

Rating: So Good (bordering on Instant Classic)
