Film: Killing Them Softly

*** 1/2
Killing Them Softly is originally linear and strikingly well made for its simplicity, although the graphic brutality may turn some viewers off. The lack of any twists or sense of real build up places greater emphasis on characters and dialogue and, fortunately, this is where the film shines. The only two drawbacks are the unnecessary empahasis on the news broadcasts of the US elections and financial crisis (just wasn't required in this movie) and second, is this lower case helvetica being used in the poster?..I am not impressed!
