The assassin who likes to kill people softly

Killing Them Softly is a black comedy rated 18. George V Higgins’ 1974 novel Cogan’s Trade has been adapted and updated from 1970’s Boston to New Orleans in 2008.

Brad Pitt plays professional enforcer Jackie Cogan, the assassin who likes to kill people softly, from a distance. He hates his hits begging for mercy so he can’t kill up close and is unable to kill anyone he’s met. A bit of a flaw in a top rated hit man you may think.

Cogan is hired to target the jerks responsible for robbing a Mob protected card game. However, he subcontracts the job to his old friend Mickey, a boozy, broken old assassin.

Directed by Andrew Dominik, the film cast includes Ray Liotta, Sam Shepard, Ben Mendelsohn, James Gandolfini, Richard Jenkins, Scoot McNairy, Vincent Curatola as well as Brad Pitt.
