Courtesy of Front Row Filmed Entertainment we had seen last night the Premiere of Simon Pegg’s latest Movie which is starting in UAE cinemas from today onwards. “Kill me Three Times” is a darkly comedic thriller from rising star director Kriv Stenders (Red Dog). “Kill me Three Times” was produced by Laurence Malkin and Share Stallings (the team behind Death At A Funeral and A Few Best Men) and Tania Chambers.
The Plot in short: Simon Pegg plays the mercurial assassin, Charlie Wolfe, who discovers he isn’t the only person trying to kill the siren of a sun-drenched surfing town (Alice Braga). Charlie quickly finds himself at the center of three tales of murder, mayhem, blackmail and revenge. With an original screenplay by James McFarland, the film also stars Sullivan Stapleton (as a gambling addict who attempts to pay off his debts through a risky life insurance scam), Teresa Palmer (as a small town Lady Macbeth), Callan Mulvey (as a wealthy beach club owner simmering with jealousy), Luke Hemsworth (as a local surfer fighting for the woman he loves) and Bryan Brown (as a corrupt cop who demands the juiciest cut).
I am quite am a big fan of Simon Pegg, I have to admit that, but besides that I find “Kill me Three Times” really entertaining and funny. The movie does not take itself too serious. So he walks around carrying a gigantic sniper rifle which paired with his black on black dress is not really a way to blend in with your surroundings and keep a low profile. Same almost slapstick scene repeats when his phone rings and a really weird ringtone comes up. But it is exactly that that makes it special to me and somehow it feels like Pulp Fiction did long time ago, a bit Tarantinoesque.
I also liked how the movie was split in three parts. Kill me Once was the opener while Kill me Twice goes back in time to explain the first part and of course Kill me Three Times is the main story and ending. If you however expect that Simon Pegg is the main character of this movie, then you’d be wrong. His character is just the guy who links all the characters and their stories brilliantly together.
Compared to many other movies in this genre “Kill Me Three Times” does very well with not making the complete story over complicate for the viewer. The characters and plots work well together with each having a purpose that can’t0 work without the other one. Moreover this is not a liner running storyline with jumping to the different times (using the 3 acts) and in order to not give everything away at the beginning.
I don’t really have something bad or negative to say about this movie. To me it is a fun movie giving you a good time out with Simon Pegg being the comic relief.
Verdict: Kill Me Three Times is an interesting Movie. If you like Tarrantino movies you will really like this one.
