Killing Them Softly is not a typical action/gangster movie but has good dialogue
I like character-driven and 'talky' films, but Killing Them Softly
doesn't work. It does have good dialogue, but the filmmaker doesn't seem to know when to stop or how to pace well. Especially the car scene before the robbery. It went far too long. The film has other problems as well. I was gutted as I had looked forward to seeing it for a long time. Actually, I'm still seething because KTS could have been so good.
It's better off as a stage play, tbh.
