As expected for the stellar cast, the acting in this is top class with brilliant performances from everyone involved especially Ray Liotta whose character I genuinely empathized with. I went in to Killing Them Softly with high hopes from the enticing trailer and A-list actors, but those hopes soon faded. The movie got off to what I thought was a slow start, but I now realize that set the pace of the whole movie. Unfortunately for Killing Them Softly movies can’t be entirely judged on just the actors performances. Aside from one or two good looking slow motion scenes, the rest of the film is a bit of a mess.
