Kill Me Again

Overview

Kill Me Again relies heavily on atmosphere and mood, but these aspects suffer on DVD because the picture is cropped. Widescreen transfers are becoming fairly standard issue these days, which makes the absence of one on this disc all the more frustrating. The overall transfer is mediocre, with no major drawbacks or positives. A significant amount of defects exist, including some graininess and muted colors. However, the outdoor scenes remain fairly bright and clear, with well-defined images in the foreground and ...

Overview

Kill Me Again relies heavily on atmosphere and mood, but these aspects suffer on DVD because the picture is cropped. Widescreen transfers are becoming fairly standard issue these days, which makes the absence of one on this disc all the more frustrating. The overall transfer is mediocre, with no major drawbacks or positives. A significant amount of defects exist, including some graininess and muted colors. However, the outdoor scenes remain fairly bright and clear, with well-defined images in the foreground and background. The 2.0-channel Dolby Surround soundtrack functions well in conveying the sordid mood and tension of the film. While the sounds fail to move remarkably well from left to right, the end results are clear and efficient. Though this is a fairly obscure MGM catalog title, the lack of any noteworthy extras is still irksome. Even a short section of production notes or cast information would have helped. This disc does contain the original theatrical trailer in the full-screen form; it succeeds in conveying the dark, shady nature of the film without giving away the entire plot. Overall, though, the lack of extras, combined with the full-screen transfer, shows MGM's minimal interest in promoting this film on DVD.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Linda Rasmussen
Kill Me Again -- aptly titled in reference to some amusing and complex plot devices -- is at times somewhat clumsy and unbelievable, but is saved by its unexpected and surprising conclusion and by the performance of Val Kilmer. Kilmer can be wooden at times, but is mostly charming and believable as Jack. Joanne Whalley-Kilmer is excellent in her role of the seductive, deceptive lady on the run. Kill Me Again, while derivative in some respects, gives an interesting twist to familiar material and is both an amusing send-up of the entire genre and a genuinely engrossing crime thriller.
