Critic Reviews for The Kill Team
The Kill Team's depiction of toxic masculinity and bloodthirstiness within the U.S. Army is blunted by an overly passive lead performance and a lack of specificity in its storytelling.
The Kill Team is lean, sincere, impassioned filmmaking, yet it fails to leave as much of an impression as it clearly wants to.
It's actually the second half I found the most compelling... I find the last 30 minutes the most interesting of all, but [director Dan Krauss] doesn't explore it as much as I wish he would.
Krauss digs into the murky, uneasy morality of wartime, but "The Kill Team" doesn't quite convey the brutality of these crimes with the same power that news accounts or even Krauss' own documentary have.
"The Kill Team" is so skillfully made, sharply paced (it clocks in under 90 minutes), and generally well-acted (Skarsgard in particular) that its flaws are easy to forgive.
