The Killer – David Fincher (2023)

  • thriller

Thanks to Filmofiel for notifying me to a descent film on Netflix. A Netflix original even.

We follow a killer for hire on a job. In long monologues the killer tells the viewers about his job, his methodology, his state of mind and the world. His hit goes wrong, though, and he hurries back to his house in South America. There he finds his partner dead. Obviously somebody is after him for the job gone wrong. He decides that is is better to strike first.

Now you may expect a John Wick type explosion of violence, but “The Killer” is actually a very slow, minimalist movie. Nothing we have not seen before, but Fincher worked it out well and the result is a slow and moody action thriller.
