Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Killers

Should have either been purely arthouse or solely a gritty grindhouse film to work. Killers is too shallow and repetitive to be an analysis of the criminal mind, and much too patient to be energetic. The dual storylines plod along without a sense of surprise. Many of the horror scenes are more bloody than terrifying or unsettling due to the film's thirst for entertainment rather than layered emotion.
