Markie Trattman (Ray Liotta) runs an illegal poker game. He once hired some guys to rob his own game, but the mob could never prove he was behind it, even though everyone suspected him. A couple of punks got the great idea of hitting the game again, and setting up Markie as the fall guy. But they’re not about to get away with this. Jackie (Brad Pitt) is a hit man, one who is highly professional, but a bit quirky. He doesn’t like to get too close to the people he has to take out, so he calls it “Killing Them Softly” in the is comedy crime film.

This is a very unusual film. It was relatively interesting to watch, but was really weird. It’s definitely a comedy, but I’m not sure the parts that were funny were the parts that were supposed to be funny. I got through the whole film, but found it somewhat mediocre for the most part. Brad Pitt didn’t have a lot going on. He was mostly blah most of the way through, and I really didn’t get him. It was just not a great comedy, nor was it a good gangster movie. If you’re a Brad Pitt fan, or like quirky crime films, then feel free to go for it, but personally, I’d say skip it. It just didn’t have enough going for it to keep me interested or to really care how they worked everything out.
