  • A professional enforcer investigates the brazen robbery of a high-stakes mob poker game in this crime thriller directed by Andrew Dominik (THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD) and adapted from a novel by George V. Higgins. Livid over the fact that three low-level thieves have crashed the entire underworld economy, the mob's top brass hires Jackie Cogan (Brad Pitt) to see that the bandits pay for their crime. The closer Cogan gets to his target, however, the more he finds his mission complicated by an alcoholic hit man who's well past his prime, incompetent gangsters, and the playboy host of the inauspicious game. James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta, Ben Mendelsohn, Richard Jenkins, and Scoot McNairy co-star.

  • Critic Reviews
    "A juicy, bloody, grimy and profane crime drama that amply satisfies as a deep-dish genre piece..."
    Hollywood Reporter

    3 stars out of 5 -- "It's this terrific ensemble that offers real bang for your buck here..."
    Total Film

    "Dominik certainly leaves his mark. KILLING THEM SOFTLY is a striking film of starkly delineated personality..."
    Sight and Sound

    3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] compellingly languorous genre picture that doesn't indict the American system so much as call it out for what it is."
    Box Office

    "A clever thriller with a particularly meaty performance by Brad Pitt..."
    USA Today

    "The film wants to be angry and scathing, but, to its credit, enjoys its characters and its mechanics too much to have a sharp edge."

    "Dominik knows his way around a breath-stopping suspense setpiece, but his ambition to do more is encouraging..." -- Grade: B+
    A.V. Club

    3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he acting is aces, especially Pitt mixing it up with the superb James Gandolfini..."
    Rolling Stone

    "It's a mesmerizing tale of kill-or-be-killed capitalist desperation." -- Grade: A
