Critics reviews

Seven years later, Kill List itself looks less like a pastiche and more like a single work with its own legend and legacy. . . . For all its influences and imitators, it remains a singular thing, joining together kitchen-sink realism, gangster-flick viciousness, and midnight-movie weirdness under the sign of pitch-black magic.

It’s a disturbing piece of work. . . . Its underlying metaphor is probably best understood backwards, as one of the primitive superstition and violence sublimated into more socially acceptable forms until it arrives at the exact point where the movie begins.
