Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
This drugged-out, blood-soaked caper flick directed by Pulp Fiction screenwriter Roger Avary stars Eric Stoltz as an American safecracker who travels to Paris to help an old friend rob a bank. Don't expect Swiss-watch precision here. This ragtag team of felons may have big dreams, but they aren't particularly bright: They spend the night before a big Bastille Day heist pumping one another full of as many drugs as they can get their hands on during a whirlwind tour of underground Paris nightlife. The exceedingly scruffy Jean-Hugues Anglade plays the team's ringleader, a Frenchman with a death wish, and Stoltz is suitably dazed throughout, never quite willing to face what he's gotten himself into. The ethereal Julie Delpy costars as the eponymous Zoe, a hooker Stoltz meets on his first night in Paris. The influence of Quentin Tarantino, who's credited as one of the film's executive producers is very much in evidence; violent, hip, and hyperkinetic, Killing Zoe is tailor-made for Tarantino fans.

    Cheap, Predictable, and Boring

    Predictable from the first 5 minutes into the movie with an overdone plot. A safe-cracker named Zed (Stoltz) meets with an old friend in Paris to do a heist. Before the heist, Zed meets a prostitute named Zoe who happens to work at the bank in question (Wow! such skill at being subtle and unpredictable!) Zed has a falling out with his gangster friend and so decides to be the hero instead of the villain: how touching. Nothing original here except bad acting and scenes so vulgar and tasteless they would even shock Howard Stern. The script is uninventive and filled with bland conversations. The acting itself is less than stellar. The plot's conincidences are too great to be credible and the action too dull to keep it interesting. I frankly could have done without the grotesque heroin-induced sodomy scenes. Watch 'Heat' instead if you want to see a great bank heist film. Don't waste your time or money on this one, it's a sleeper at best: A negative rating is called for.
