Killer Joe by alohajill
The worst movie I have ever seen! And to rate it as a comedy? What a sick joke! Lost all respect for Matthew. Took my friend for his birthday thinking it would something to laugh at and we were all disgusted. We would have walked out but were were waiting for a funny part. I sit through all movies but if I had to do go through that again I would definitely walk out. Wish I could get my money back!
WARNING: Not for everyone and adults only by calcutta
This movie is like watching a super cell (storm) bearing down on a rustic collection of inhabited rural huts. No matter how unspeakable the outcome is bound to be, one knows from the opening scenes that the worst may quite possibly be creppier than one might imagine. Some might call this pornography of the usual variety but by dint of violence surely. However, the story arc is served by the pure evil depicted and is necessary to set up the blackest humor ever filmed and exhibited on a public movie screen. Above all, even though the urbane, affluent Upper West Side audience in New York seemed uncertain whether to laugh, that question was soon resolved with hoots and gales of unbridled belly guffawing; applause at the end. Guilty? Yes. Avoidable? No. NOT for the faint of heart or easily offended. The leads are perfect. The directing by a name brand? Flawless. Top notch writing. One last warning, if you like linear storytelling with a calming resolution, this is not for you.
Killer Joe by mimi28
I understant the art of dark comedy. This film fails at it because it is filled with degradation and abuse of women. Among other things. I am sorry I saw it. It ruined my week end. Whatever interest I had in Matthew McConnaghey has been completely and utterly snuffed out.
Good tragicomedy! by Pattyquin
It has a very sadistic humor, you don't know if you should close your eyes on those shocking scenes or laugh until death at the same moment. But at the end, I really liked it!
GOOD MOVIE-lOUSY ENDING by BCR123
loved the movie until the last scene. Another example of a director outhinking himself. He must have consulted with Oliver Stone (see Savages) and they both agreed to create the worst ending to a movie ever so they could mutually ruin their latest shows. The ending almost ruined the whole show because it was such a let down. Stop outthinking yourselves Hollywood. Dont need these ridiculous endings to very good movies. See Pulp Fiction if you dont understand how to end a movie. The end of that movie fit in perfectly with the entire show. Would have been a must go if not for the crappy ending.
Killer Joe should be killed by kim1040
This was absolutely the worst movie I have seen in a long time. The description left out foul language, nudity, crudity, pedophilia, domestic violence, violence......Total waste of money and time.
Hot afternoon, poor movie by Normcal
The worst movie ever. The theme, buried in the pile, was stupid, the scenes nonsensical. Go buy a Hustler if you want pictures. Thanks to the theater on Senior day as I only wasted 4.50.
A VIOLENT, BRUTAL PORTRAIT OF EVIL. IF YOU LIKED THE PLAY, THE FILM WILL NOT DISAPPOINT. by Peneflix
Based on the play by Tracy Letts, director William Friedkin has remained religiously faithful to this ragingly, raunchy, raw rendition of a family pushed to the edge; options dead, every action a reaction; trailer park trash painfully vitalized and depicted by compelling acting...
Matthew McCaughey is brilliant as "Killer Joe", an amoral lawman for murderous hire. Emile Hirsch is smarmy, stupid "Chris" a twenty-two year old drug dealer, conjuring his financial salvation by hiring Joe to kill his mother for her life insurance. Thomas Haden Church ("Sideways") is "Ansel" the clueless, guileless, gullible father of Chris, duped into duplicity. Gina Gershon as "Sharla", (Chris's stepmother and wife of Ansel) oozes cunning sexuality from every pore, her salty, salacious demeanor forecasts a tide of tribulation...
TWO & 1/2 STARS!!

Its a hoot!!! by windinthewillow
I am not a huge Matthew McConaughey fan, but he is perfect in this movie. If you like Pulp Fiction, Fargo, or any of those types of movie, you will love this one. If you have trailer trash in your gene pool, it's gonna hit real close to home!
