Miller (a possible director pseudonym) and filmed entirely in the town of Granville, Ohio, "Kill" has pedestrian action sequences, a drawn-out approach (despite a short running time of 97 minutes), timeworn kidnap situations, and a severe level of predictability.

Everybody else is bland and annoying, excepting Anthony.


The acting and cinematography is fine and it's an enjoyable direct to video flick.

Dialogue from the very start to the contrived climax is riddled with clichés and cheese, some real howlers in the misplaced humorous elements, and the story has no surprises, fun or tension, is very pedestrian in pace and suffers most from throwing in too many elements/turns that it all becomes confusing.

An interesting film, with a predictable outcome.

The script is stupid (i mean, its like the script for a cartoon), and the pace is slow and weird.

It wasn't one I would watch again, but it was enjoyable enough.

No story here, no intelligent twist, no surprises.

The plot is cliché.

Don't waste your time watching this movie .

Waste of time, waste of money and better to go out do something else than watching this one.

Waste of time unless for academic purposes .

Instead, You Get Bored.

Very bad movie, Willis seems bored and also not very well ?

Don't waste your time.

Somehow I enjoyed this predictable blunder .

The writing/screenplay was very bad and had too many plot holes and was predictable.

This is a fast paced movie with twists and turns that come quickly.

This movie is awful, awful direction, awful script, predictable, boring, meaningless thriller soundtrack.

Other than that it was an enjoyable movie and would watch it again

Boring after 1 min .

Characters in this movie were uninteresting and base.

I just walked out.

The action and thrills are boring.

Because this is at best an fairly okay film if you're bored and has nothing else to watch.

The thrills and action in the movie is dull.

It's predictable.

Horrible Director Execution - so far predictable .

Back to the movie- the cinematography is bland, uninspiring.

Maybe one of the worst movies .

Her performance is weak at best and the character is empty.

Predictable, hence, minus one star.

Still very entertaining and well done.

Kept me interested until the end, suspenseful throughout .

First Kill is a forgettable action thriller with bad acting, boring action, and a cliché story.

Just poor wnd boring.

The sheer irony of round two is worth the watch.

Among the worst movies I've ever seen .

OK, there are reviews of this movie here calling it the worst movie ever.

The tea of the movie plays out like a predictable and so so novel.

Entertaining if you can suspend your need for a good story line.

Nope, unfortunately at best Bruce appears to be bored and totally disinterested in his character, the script the plot...

Absolutely one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

Boring and terrible with the performances!!.

Don't Waste Your Time .

It's a waste of time ...
