Notes: 
Storyline Heading
Three dumb guys who think they're smart rob a Mob protected card game, causing the local criminal economy to collapse. Brad Pitt plays the enforcer hired to track them down and restore order.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Crime - While a crime/gangster film, this movie has a lot less action than one would expect and is very talky, often darkly comedic so. Brad Pitt is the lead star but this is more of an ensemble picture, with showy parts from the other cast members such as James Gandolfini. Despite all the talkiness, there are a number of graphically violent moments, and that with the constant language makes the film inappropriate for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good However, while such an overdose of nihilism may not be to everyone's taste, this is an example of how it can be done efficiently and effectively.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average 'Killing Them Softly' continues as a dismal, dreary series of cruel and painful murders, mostly by men who know one another, in a barren city where it's usually night, often rainy and is never identifiable as New Orleans...

USA Today Full Review
Good A charismatic hired gun played by Brad Pitt does nothing softly in this hyper-violent, visually stunning and well-written thriller.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Average Hope and change come in for their share of body blows in 'Killing Them Softly,' but the film's own jaundiced amorality ultimately feels just as devoid of meaning or genuine edge.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

I love reviews like this. The critics all rated it high but moviegoers pretty much all disliked it. This clearly shows the benefits of moviegoer reviews. Even though Killing Me Softly has Brad Pitt in it, it's not a movie most of you will enjoy.
