Movie – Killing Them Softly: B-

killing them softlyB-
It didn’t have much of a story arc, but it certainly had style, from the campaign speeches heard during establishing shots, the genuine feeling the conversations had, and small details like showing unrelated crime scenes taking place in the background. I enjoyed the slow-motion kill, but the first-person drug visions were lacking. The problem is that showing the criminal world with little exaggeration or sensationalism makes them seem mundane. And it’s difficult to stay interested in the dealings of the mundane.
