Re: “Second thoughts on British horror film Kill List

The character is Gal, not Sam, and the actor's Michael Smiley, but other than that a very nice piece. Focusing on Jay and Gal's military background adds an interesting wrinkle to things. My mind went (as I'm sure others have) along the route of "first they were in the military, and now they're assassins", a linear course of events, rather than the two occupations overlapping; taking jobs between deployments, or more likely in their case, being recalled for certain special assignments, such as Kiev, which the viewer defaults to thinking was a job/hit that went bad versus a military operation that went bad (and might help explain the existence of that folder and the insistence that only Jay and Gal can finish the job). Very interesting wrinkles indeed. So thanks for your second thoughts.
