Kill Me Three Times Review


Professional hit-man Charlie Wolfe finds himself in three tales of murder, blackmail and revenge after a botched contract assignment.

Kill Me Three Times (2014) is an Australian black comedy thriller that is 90 minutes long and was filmed in various locations in Australia. Director Kriv Stenders (Red Dog (2011), Boxing Day (2007), The Illustrated Family Doctor (2005)) did an okay job with this movie. It was nothing out of the ordinary to tell your friends about. Kill Me Three Times has nothing new for us to see and seems to be a cliche after seeing so many crime movies throughout the years. The movie contains sexual content, nudity, extreme violence, bad language, intense moments and some good old humor.

Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead (2004), Hot Fuzz (2007), Paul (2011), Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011)) appeared to be enjoying himself playing hitman Charlie Wolfe in this movie. Charles is a contract killer that goes above and beyond to find his target, even through the desert. Charles has been hired to execute Alice Taylor ( Alice Braga - I Am Legend (2007), City of God (2002), Elysium (2013), Predators (2010)) and was not told why he has to or given a reason. Charles soon figures out that Alice execution is for Nathan’s Webb (Sullivan Stapleton - 300: Rise of an Empire (2014), Animal Kingdom (2010), Gangster Squad (2013), Strike Back (2010)) gambling addiction. Nathan wants Alice to be killed so that he can cash in on her insurance claim to pay off his gambling debts. Police Officer Bruce Jones (Bryan Brown - Cocktail (1988), Australia (2008), Along Came Polly (2004), Gorillas in the Mist (1988)) is a dirty cop and is out to get his money from Nathan. If that was not bad enough, Alice’s husband Jack Taylor ( Callan Mulvey - 300: Rise of an Empire (2014), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), Rush (2008), The Hunter (2011)) soon finds out about Alice’s secret lover, Dylan Smith (Luke Hemsworth).

I fell in love with the sets in this movie as it was purely spectacular. The scenery and views was a treat. The violence balances out evenly with the humor. There is not much to say about this movie except that it was a nice watch but is not something that I will see again. I would recommend it to viewers who would like a good action flick with different actors.
