Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: An engrossing little adventure. – A.H. Weiler, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: At 27 Writer-Director Stanley Kubrick, in his third full-length picture, has shown more audacity with dialogue and camera than Hollywood has seen since the obstreperous Orson Welles went riding out of town on an exhibitors' poll. – TIME Magazine, Aug 3, 2011

Fresh: [The film] at first tends to be somewhat confusing, soon settles into a tense and suspenseful vein which carries through to an unexpected and ironic windup. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Faultless and enjoyable. – David Thomson, The New Republic, Jun 24, 2013

Kubrick is a genius

one of the best movies ever made!

Kubrick's Timeless Classic (4.5 mics)

And again, being only his third full- length feature film, THe Killing is one movie that will help influence and inspire upcoming successful classics such as Quentin Tarentino's Resivour Dogs (I'm quite sure I spelled that wrong) to Ocean's Eleven. Sterlen Hayden is excellent in this. The plot in a nutshell is a group of ambitious men, who all have one risky goal to rob a Race Track. But as always things inconvieniantly don't go as planned. Awsome movie!

Simply Amazing

When I first saw this movie a year ago, I was amazed. the acting is great and the mixing up of intertwining stories is an interesting and successful attempt. In short, buy it.
