Graphic violence with many plot sequences which do not help the languid narrative to reinforce much needed depth to a subject, which had potential. In general a very weak effort, infantile and lacking in direction although some good acting performances from the men give it 2 stars. The main character's wife sorry, but does not pass off for being Swedish.

This is a far more brutal film than Wheatley's first, 2009's "Down Terrace." Though it had crime at its center as well, it was balanced by a dry irony and far less blood. There is no offset in Kill List, with one scene so relentless in its gore that it makes the notorious elevator scene in "Drive" pale in comparison. Full Review

The final twist is both baffling and repulsive, but as an evocation of the triumph of evil, it's peerless. Full Review

That assured style is the spackle that holds Kill List together: when the plot doglegs into insanity, and the characters follow suit, this brutal fever dream refuses to fall apart. Full Review
