Righteous Kill- August 9th

Righteous Kill (2008)
English- Crime Drama
Rated “R”
Runtime- 103 min.
dir. John Avnet

I knew that this film seemed just a little too off-color to do well at the average box office. On the flip side, it’s not really unique enough to do well on the cult circuit either.

Story/Writing: 1/2

Pretty good overall arc, but gets sloppy in the execution, making it flat.

Acting: 1.5/2

De Niro and Pacino do the best they can to make this interesting, but the ensemble part of the cast isn’t always very helpful.

Photography/Set: 1/2

The sets aren’t great, and the framing and editing do little to help. It’s some fairly exciting stuff filmed really boringly.

Sound/FX: 1.5/2

Guns, check. Blood, check. Music, check.

Misc: 1/2

I was satisfied, but I didn’t feel like I had used my time well
