Thankfully i didn't learn in quite such a brutal manner. But damn, very important movie to watch for everyone who is into the crazies :
A fast moving comedy horror thriller which makes both genders look good. (by LLgoatJ)
Anyone who thinks the new Ghostbusters film is good purely because it has all female leads should watch this. The story is about Chip and his strong minded girlfriend Liza. She has a sugar daddy who she plans to still $68000 from with Chip's help. Liza has a different idea of how to do the robbery and it ends in two deaths and a kidnapping. There is thin more double crossing, more deaths and a lot of blood. The characters are genuinely different to most films but still believable. Liza's brother was my favourite character and probably the most psycho of them all. I also loved Liza for <more>
being a strong woman but ordinary too. She knows what she wants and happy to kill for it if necessary. Although it has strong females the males don't really come over as weak and pathetic which normally happens with a strong female. Chip has a lot of bad things happen to him by women but ends up as the winner at the end. The film has some thriller elements. It is also funny in places. It also has blood gore with limbs being chopped off and Liza's brothers sexual perversion.This is a genuinely different but good film. I have seen a lot of films and never really seen anything like it. Give it a go.
A Surprisingly Awesome Movie That Knows When to Deliver the Thrills or the Laughs (by BigZ_7337)
I went into this film not knowing much about it, and by the end I loved the non-stop ride 68 Kill delivered. It was really interesting how the movie reversed a lot of the thriller/horror tropes, where the main character, Matthew Gray Gubler as Chip, is abused and ordered around by all of the strong women in the film. The first woman, AnnaLynne McCord as Liza, is Chip's girlfriend and she has the bright idea to rob her boss/sugar-daddy. The heist seems to go off without a hitch, until Liza murders the husband and wife, much to the surprise of Chip. Here they also meet the second woman, <more>
Alisha Boe as Violet, as Liza shoves her into the trunk of their car to sell her to Liza's serial killer brother. Having finally crossed a line Chip couldn't accept, he escapes in the car and begins the journey that would lead to the third and final strong woman, Sheila Vand as Monica. All three of the women are crazy to varying degrees, and the story weaves all three of them in and out of the story with Chip as their target of love, anger, and violence.To avoid any spoilers, I'll avoid talking too much more about the story, but I loved the pacing of it. Where it really only slows down for one section, and that slower part sets up the rest of the film which is balls to the wall crazy in the best way. The acting is all top notch, with the standout definitely being AnnaLynne McCord, her abusive crazy girlfriend character dominated every scene she was in, and I'd love to see her in more movies. Her eyes just looked so crazy, and I really believed her character. There were some things in the middle with the story that I didn't love, including an apparent roofie that's never shown or explained, and other characters impressive and unexplained following abilities. However, everything lead to such an awesome climax, that all of the other lesser parts of the film completely worth it. I also loved how 68 Kill made me laugh out loud uncontrollably multiple times throughout the film. It doesn't necessarily play for the laugh in an obvious way, and the comedy is definitely dark, but I found multiple scenes hilarious.I would definitely recommend this film, as long as you don't mind some violence and gore with your dark comedy thriller.

A film that doesnt take itself seriously at all, and that works very well for a movie you dont need to invest alot in. Funny, disturbing and bloody with a ridiculous plot. I think if you want a fun time and you like grindhouse type movies, this will be enjoyable. Of course its my opinion but it helps that the lead actress is fantastic at acting crazy in this film and others.
All money has blood on it...... (by kboote)
A wonderful film full of energy, verve, humour and great characters. Despite the constant mayhem and fun Mr Haaga also manages to include some strong feminist commentary – love all of the gender reversal stuff – and a sub text about what the dollar is really all about, in both the title and the theme that all money has blood on it.This film mixes a heady concoction of the best bits of Tarantino, Rob Zombie not a lot of "best bits" to choose from I'll admit John Walters and Stuart Gordon but produces an original film that represents another step forward for the genre <more>
craftsman Mr Haaga to add to his excellent work on "Deadgirl" and "Cheap Thrills".Love the direction, cinematography, script and soundtrack and the film feels very much a cohesive and satisfying whole. The performances are very strong – with Matthew Gray Gubler becoming the indie comedy thriller leading man of choice - a post John Waters era James Stewart "everyman" who you automatically like and want to succeed. AnnaLyne McCord gives another remarkable performance, proving that women can be incredibly strong and sexy without being exploited or reverting to a femme fatale stereotype. It's great that Ms McCord has opted for much edgier material than her earlier CV would have automatically lead to maybe as the young foil to Cameron Diaz in some lousy rom-com or some such? She has a feline, reptilian beauty that is perfectly matched to the role she plays here she was also stunning in "Excision". Who knows what she is capable of if someone produces the roles for her? Sheila Vand after her performance in "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night" is also becoming a very interesting screen presence and Alisha Boe is a heart meltingly sweet in her role who almost, but not quite, makes us forget Ms McCord when she is off screen. So brilliant casting Mr Haaga as well.I enjoyed the entire movie from start to finish but I have to say that a couple of the set piece scenes deserve to become cult classics in their own right. The "Pop Music " scene particularly in the context of what just happened in the film is hilarious and deserves to join the pantheon of those in car music movie moments such as the "Wayne's World" Bohemian Rhapsody" episode and the "Trailer scene" is approaching the family meal time scene in the original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre " for creepy fun.Deserves to gain a cult following and I can't wait to see more from the director/writer and cast.
Chip Matthew Gray Gubler is a regular guy who lives in a trailer park with his crazy prostitute girlfriend Liza AnnaLynne McCord . Liza is oversexed and clearly inspired by Sheri Moon Zombie. She decides that her and Chip will rob a client of 68 thousand dollar. A duel killing and a kidnapping later, Chip finds himself in a Tarantino style grindhouse hell going from crazy woman to the next.I loved the character of Liza, Violet Alisha Boe and Monica Sheila Vand . Even Dwayne Sam Eidson another improbable character, was interesting. For those who like Sheri Moon grindhouse type films, <more>
give it a view.Guide: F-word, sex, nudity Sheila Vand
A Hilarious, Sadistic, and Unpredictable Joyride from Hell!!! (by zardoz-13)
Sophomore director Trent Haaga has cast "Criminal Minds" co-star Matthew Gray Gubler as a character in "68 Kill" like no other he has portrayed. A bloodthirsty, comedy of errors-crime thriller about a harmless milquetoast and the brutal women in his life, this fast-moving, contemporary, 93-minute melodrama boasts three dominatrixes who treat him like their slave. The three desperate dames in Chip's life turn his days upside-down. They take him beyond his worst nightmares, and he is powerless to resist their bellicosity. Occasionally, he fights back. Most of his efforts <more>
unravel in utter futility. Gubler delivers a sympathetic performance in this role that allows him to change over the course of the action. He works for a sewage company, and he refuses to stand up for himself in the face of any confrontation. You will laugh until your sides are sore every time he ends up in a predicament with no apparent way out for him. Clearly, Gubler embraced the role because he was willing to behave cluelessly throughout with no qualms about how humiliating he would appear. "Chop" director Trent Haaga's second movie isn't anything major, but it features several exciting moments, interesting characters, and off-beat situations that you won't have trouble getting through an initial viewing. Happily, when the dust of his disasters settle, Chip emerges as a changed man.Our nerdy hero, Chip Matthew Gray Gubler , has a vicious, joyriding girlfriend, Liza AnnaLynne McCord of "Transporter 2" , who wants a better life. The first stepping stone to that dream is a scumbag, Ken Mckenzie David Maldonado of "The 5th Wave" , has $68-thousand in cash in a safe at his place. Chip's crazy girlfriend Liza takes him along on what she calls a quick 'in and out' that turns out to be far more complicated. After Liza kills Ken, Chip and she are shocked to find an innocent bystander in the house, Violet Alisha Boe of "Paranormal Activity 4" , who can identify them. Quick-thinking Liza has her stuffed the trunk of their red 2004 Mustang and she intends to sell the girl to her perverted brother, Dwayne a bespectacled Sam Eidson of "The Cain Complex" , as extremely creepy as Liza. Chip discovers Dwayne makes gory snuff films, and Liza admits she sold another girl earlier to Dwayne, who used her for body parts in his home-made video. Chip draws the line at this point, clobbers Liza over the head with a pistol, and vanishes with Violet still in the trunk. Actually, Liza is as angry as she is impressed with Chip's display of machismo. She catches up with him on the highway somewhere in Louisiana and orders him pull over after she brandishes a pistol. The crack on her head that Chip administered when he whipped her with a pistol earlier her topples her. Now, Chip finds himself at the mercy of a second woman, Violet. He had opened the trunk to check on her, and she manages to relieve him of his pistol and turn it on him. After scaring the life out of poor Chip, Violet decides that she could spend the $68-thousand as easily as Liza. Moreover, Violet has fallen on hard times, some of which she can attribute to the unscrupulous Ken who sought to abuse her. When she refused his improper advances, Violet quit. Little did poor Violet realize that Ken was best buds with her landlord. She wound up in the street with nothing, and Ken was her only salvation. She went back to him as a sex slave. Mind you, with Ken out of the way and all that cash, Violet wants to go somewhere and live like a princess. Chip has to gas up the Mustang. He encounters a Goth-looking cashier at a gas station/convenience store, Monica Sheila Vand of "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" , and pays her from the $68-thousand. Monica gets noses and bargains with him to keep her mouth shut for two bills. Violet intervenes, saves Chip from Monica, and they head off to a motel. She claims that she wants sex with someone of her preference rather than vice-versa. Chip awakens the next morning, finds a body hacked up in the body tub. Not only is his Mustang gone, but also thieves have taken his clothes."68 Kill" chronicles the journey of hardship that Chip embarks on involuntarily to becoming a self-sufficient man who isn't prone to his hormonal desires. At the end, he spots a tattooed lady on the side of the highway with smoke pouring out from the hood of her car, a classic example of a damsel-in-distress. She tries to flag our protagonist down, but second thoughts prompt Chip to avoid her and cruise into the sunset. Humor pervades this perverse, profanity-laden exercise, and the surprises never seem like they will stop. The cast acquits itself admirably, but Gubler's pusillanimous hero overshadows them.
