Writer’s Observation

The Killer is definitely a clinic in choreography and cinematography, as with the normal Fincher style. The action set pieces had been tension-filled and the Fassbender’s flat aesthetic has been ideal for the lead acting. Half the movie’s dialogue is a Killer’s snarky internal monologue, and then again Fassbender nailed that.

The big issue here is that there’s seemingly very little rhyme/reason or context for what we witness transpire. Almost none is provided other with what is exactly playing out in the front of the viewers with any given scenes. As such, in large part since it quite frankly sense like the series of disconnected interval as opposed to the coherent, whole story. There had been times when you will feel bored watching the movie since there are extended espionage scenario that had been upcoming and at times, the audience will not fully comprehend the stakes.

The audiences aren’t as hung-up with the lack of motives or discernible plot. There’s the deeper message in the movie. Probably the ongoing monologue take a key–but then again, it is discovered that more sardonic / snarky than informative. Probably more analysis or the next viewing will crystallized The Killer movie.
