  • A B Movie With A Brain

    By Semnick01
    Although a typical robbering movie from the 50's, this one got a brain and something more to tell, an "auteur" movie.
  • no way this should be rated so high

    this movie is unlike perhaps any other Kubrick that it's terrible, i mean its really terrible. The acting is especially bad. Don't even rent it, Really bad....really

    Great movie! I can't wait to replace it with the HD Version for my Apple TV. As soon as it's for sale in HD, I'm getting all the Kubrick films again! (click yes if you want to see in HD)
  • Fantastic Film...

    By TheInsultComic
    This is really great..Kubrick fans will not be let down. This film came out of nowhere for me...I've seen nearly all his other mainstream movies, and this one fits the bill.

    When I first saw this movie a year ago, I was amazed. the acting is great and the mixing up of intertwining stories is an interesting and successful attempt. In short, buy it.
  • Kubrick's Timeless Classic (4.5 mics)

    By 400 barz
    And again, being only his third full- length feature film, THe Killing is one movie that will help influence and inspire upcoming successful classics such as Quentin Tarentino's Resivour Dogs (I'm quite sure I spelled that wrong) to Ocean's Eleven. Sterlen Hayden is excellent in this. The plot in a nutshell is a group of ambitious men, who all have one risky goal to rob a Race Track. But as always things inconvieniantly don't go as planned. Awsome movie!
  • Kubrick is a genius
