Kill Your Friends Movie Review :
Yes, “Murder Your Friends” definitely welcomes correlations with “American Psycho,” both in its subjects and substance, and it doesn’t measure up positively. It’s amusingly smooth and mean for some time, at the end of the day the film’s one-note skepticism becomes desensitizing, and its in vogue visuals and well-picked soundtrack can just do as such much to keep it exuberant.Yet, chief Owen Harris demonstrates some genuine flashes of verve with his first element, in view of John Niven’s novel of the same name around an A&R official working at a London-based record mark when ’90s Britpop groups like Blur, Oasis and Radiohead ruled. Niven, a veteran A&R man himself, additionally adjusted the screenplay, and I ponder whether some of his crueler lines played preferable on the page over they do in star Nicholas Hoult’s overflowing voiceover. Harris’ pacing is smart and he’s made a clear feeling of place, brimming with stark, glimmering insides and startling, neon-lit move clubs. You just wouldn’t have any desire to invest a considerable measure of energy in any of these spots or with any of these characters.
Hoult is well-thrown, however, as the self-serving and heartless Steven Stelfox, who doesn’t really think about marking groups that are advantageous or even great. He just thinks about profiting. With his steely blue eyes, sharp cheekbones and strong casing, he’s a pitiless creature waiting to pounce. Smoothly, lavishly dressed, he’s wonderful however risky, yet his rehashed fourth-divider breaking turns out to be more irritating than threatening.As a permanent popular culture figure, he’s no Patrick Bateman—essentially on the grounds that he isn’t given the chance to give much shading, which makes him far less terrifying. Be that as it may, it’s anything but difficult to envision the two characters being mischievous opponents in “American Psycho”/”Murder Your Friends” fan fiction. (In spite of the fact that Stelfox doubtlessly could never support of Bateman’s prized accumulation of ’80s top choices like Huey Lewis and the News and Genesis.)
