Killers Anonymous Blu-ray Review

“Killers Anonymous” will likely remain anonymous to the viewing public.

In “Killers Anonymous,” the story revolves around a group of criminals attending a support group for killers after an assassination attempt on a Senator goes south. The Man (that is the character’s name) who runs Killers Anonymous is spying on the meeting and seems to be plotting something. Meanwhile, in the meeting, a mysterious new member (Alice) joins the group which has members frazzled. As the meeting progresses, it becomes clear that not everything is as it seems as secrets and truths are revealed.

“Killers Anonymous” desperately wishes it was like a Quentin Tarantino or Guy Ritchie movie, but it’s an utterly incompetent movie from the get go. The characters are one-note and devoid of appeal, the vague and sloppy story is horribly structured, the CGI blood is laughable, and Roger Goula’s comically overpowering and distracting score is among the worst I’ve ever heard. Not even the big plot twists garner much interest because you simply won’t care about anything happening on screen.

One thing I will say is that the cinematography by Havard Helle is at least stylish and professional for a home video type movie. Most of the time, these types of films look visually atrocious.

The cover of “Killers Anonymous” boasts the star power of Gary Oldman and Jessica Alba, but don’t get excited by that. Alba is only in the movie in the first 13 minutes and Gary Oldman spends much of his limited screentime sitting and looking through binoculars. Why Oldman is starring in this after winning an Oscar is beyond me. The rest of the cast (namely MyAnna Buring and Rhyon Nicole Brown) are adequate given that they have so little to work with character wise.

Presentation: 2.35:1 1080p. How does it look? Worthy of an A- or B+.

Audio Track: 5.1 DTS-HD MA. How does it sound? This 5.1 track does the job.

Extras:
* Lionsgate trailers and a “Killers Anonymous” trailer
* 6 deleted scenes
* An alternate ending
* Digital copy
* A likable commentary by director Martin Owen and DP Havard Helle. The two talk about shots, the script, set stories, and more.
