    The scope of the film can be frustratingly narrow. But even this limited view into the events of the Maywand District murders is gripping cinema. show more

    This is a rare War on Terror military exposé, one almost exclusively interested in the hearts and minds of low-ranking soldiers. show more

    At its core, The Kill Team has one great performance, and some important things to say – about the dangerous appeal of the strong, and the easy malleability of the young. It’s well worth watching, and thinking on. It’s just a shame that that great performance isn’t matched by all the others – and that what the film has to say is said in such a dutifully by-the-book way. show more
