What more can I say other than boredddddd
I went to this film full of hope. With so many capable and humorous
actors headed up by Sir Ben I thought this is going to be a little
Oh how I felt like gouging my eyes out as the credits rolled. That I
had wasted 93mins of my life this film that was clearly DOA. There are
some real problems with this film and it will probably be easier to
list them; 1. No jokes, I am not particularly hard to please
comedically - high or low brow - but there really is not one laugh in
2. Sir Ben mumbles through every single line whether he is supposed to
be drunk or not?!? 3. There is no effort to to begin let alone develop
the relationship between the love interests in this. 2 people bumping
into each other randomly in the street would instantly have more
4. All the acting talent that is assembled is completely wasted. Don't
be fooled into watching this because of the names.
5. For a cold ass hit-man he rubbed out more people in Gandhi than this
flaccid waste of time (a by the way dyed beards look really creepy) I
was hoping that this was a slow burner but in the end the only thing
that could inject any life - and justice - into this is Frank pulling
out his 9 and offing the whole cast starting with Tea and ending with
himself - sorry it was that bad..

You Kill Me
A few things attracted me to go and watch this movie. One, Ben
Kingsley; second, knowing that this is a different gangster movie; and
third, it is a dark comedy.
The story is about an alcoholic hit man Frank Falenczyk (Ben Kingsley)
who is sent (by his gang) to California to attend workshops of
Alcoholic Anonymous because he misses out on his jobs of killing
people. Frank is also forced to work at a mortuary cleaning and
preparing dead people's body for funeral ceremonies. Here he meets
Laurel Pearson (Tea Leoni) and both like each other and fall in love.
The gangster war eliminates most of his gang and Frank returns to
avenge the killings. Laurel helps Frank in his taking revenge, finding
love and getting over his alcoholic problems.
The movie tried hard to be different. The movie also tried to present
itself as something intelligent and above the rest. And that were its
problem. The story was obviously different, the script and treatment
were bad. The dialogues though sounding witty and intelligent
sounded forced and stupid. It did not bring any smiles on my face. I
think the casting also was poorly done. Ben Kingsley, though a great
actor was a miscast. The love affair between Ben and Tea did not have
any chemistry throughout the movie. I could not understand the
motivation of Tea to be so flirtatious with Ben to begin with.
Only two saving grace that I could remember from the movie first, the
musical score by Marcelo Zarvos which I think was quite good and
second, the 5 minute long gangster shootout scene in the middle of the
movie that was glueing.
Director John Dahl who has found his comfort zone in making thrillers;
fails to attempt a different genre with same backdrop characters and
(Stars 4.5 out of 10).
