Killing Them Softly

Rated R 97 minutes 2012

Good actors, faulty chatter. Andrew Dominik’s stab at a Tarantino-esque lower depths crime pic has a fine cast – James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta, Ben Mendelsohn, Richard Jenkins, Scoot McNairy, and Sam Shepard in cameo – to give Brad Pitt something to bounce off of, but the dialogue and pacing are way off. It’s difficult to believe that novelist George V. Higgins (The Friends of Eddie Coyle) had anything to do with such a crippled screenplay. But writer-director Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) obviously had his fingers in the soup. A few bright moments, but only a few, as hit man Pitt seeks out the goons who ripped off a protected card game. Every cliché in the book. (97 min.)
