Brad Pitt gets a bad rap from a lot of people, for what I honestly don’t know. I won’t go as far as saying that he’s underrated, but he’s far from being overrated; I guess the right word would be unappreciated. I like that he doesn’t pigeonhole himself and takes on a variety of roles. He’s been the sex symbol (Legends of the Fall), an action hero (Mr. and Mrs. Smith), taken on dramatic roles (Moneyball and The Tree of Life) and he’s even done comedy (the Ocean trilogy). In Killing Them Softly Pitt is playing a hit-man, a serious and gritty role. Alongside a really well put together cast including James Gandolfini, Richard Jenkins and Ray Liotta the heist/crime thriller could be a surprise hit. I know I have my hopes up and look forward to its release in October.
