Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Out of the muck and mire of human depravity that is "Killer Joe," something magnificent comes: a killer performance by Matthew McConaughey.
Rotten: That everything should go wrong is no surprise, but the wrong turns are taken so viciously -- Gershon, in particular, is appallingly treated, in closeup -- that they lead the film, adapted from the play by Tracy Letts, to the brink of abusive farce.
Fresh: It's as mean as a snake.
Fresh: A gleeful and unapologetic descent into delicious decadence, Killer Joe is proud of what it is and never tries to be something it isn't.
Finger lickin' good fried chicken
A movie that is not afraid to share the "secret" in colonel' recipe and served it the way the good colonel intended! The best in its genre since Blood Simple. The best movie of 2012, should have best picture!
This is not rated R. Just have the balls to post an NC-17 film and say it's NC-17. The world will not end, and religious groups will not storm iTunes headquarters because you put a film up that has a rating like any other rating.
I thought The casting and acting was very good. There is a lot of nudity, which I wasn't expecting, but I wasn't extremely offended by it either. Some people might be offended by some scenes, but it is a movie! I would recommend it.
