“Difficult for a man to know where he stands these days.”
It doesn’t really get more genre-defying than Kill List. Part hitman film, part family drama, part… well, you should see it for yourself, because I don’t want to give anything else away.
Kill List is great. It’s so ambitious and unexpected, so even when it fails, which it certainly does at times, it’s easy to forgive because it’s just trying something so different and weird and interesting.
Ben Wheatley also has a really competent and interesting visual style, so even when story elements aren’t working, it’s still a hell of a lot of fun to look at.
I can’t really say more than that without spoiling this story and world.
Will I Ever Watch It Again? Yes. It’ll be fun to go back to see what I might notice with repeat viewings.
