Absolute rubbish!!! Boring, dull, monotone...a complete waste of 2 hrs.

Frustrating robotic manner of speech and interaction from all the characters, but a punch-packing, jaw-dropping, effective movie all the same.

This Killing is very strange and unsettling. The tone is hard to place. People speak in strange ways, fast monotone speach with little affect, which suggests this is not reality per se. The kid is very creepy and can even turn spaghetti into something scary. I think his character will be remembered as a classic psycho. Very compelling.

Wow, this one was really different and I should have watched it more than once. I did have to do some research online to fully understand it. I like these actors and the movie was creepy with excellent camera work. To understand the movie, first understand the title, which has to do with some Greek dudes, living in ancient times, who accidentally kill a deer that belongs to a Greek god named Artemis. The stilted way the actors talk is a device this director likes to use, for some reason.

I Hated that kid and hated this movie, I hope Yargos makes better one's in the future because this was un enjoyable and boring.
I give 1 star for Colin.
Perhaps if the Director could maybe "REMAKE" some English versions of his older "GREEK" films even, if he can't come up with a more entertaining idea?

It was a strange movie of revenge and it was slow pace to me. Also I found it hard to grasp and it was interesting in a weird way but I really didn't think it was good but if someone likes movies with slow pace that builds up then this would be a good movie. Also the actors are a great cast.

Bizarre. I spent the first 30 minutes of the film trying to decide if it was worth continuing to watch it. Then things started to pick up. Definitely unusual and suspenseful at the end.

After this pile of crap and The Lobster, I will never, ever, EVER watch another Yorgos Lanthimos movie. He is rubbish.
