Kill Me Three Times
Simon Pegg heads an ensemble cast that includes Teresa Palmer, Luke (yet another) Hemsworth, and Bryan Brown in this dark comedy crime thriller that should be better than it is, suffering from too much style and not enough substance. Pegg plays a hit-man who finds himself in the middle of a sea of degenerates and nothing goes as planned. With a slightly more clever and engaging script, this could have been a really cool movie. As is, it's just passive, derivative entertainment that's just enjoyable enough while you're watching it, but you'll have long forgotten it a week later.
Who is this movie for? If you go for the poor man's old school Tarantino-inspired straight to video film geek fare. I generally dig that stuff, even if it ain't great.
