Revenge has never been so painful to watch
This is a lethal dose of horrendous acting, crippling pace and horrible script bundled into one. Usually B-movies, the type where Vinnie Jones dabbles in for these recent years, can at least be appreciated for their silly antics or embellished action. However, "Kill Kane" can barely produce basic elements of actual movie, which makes it terribly cheap and utterly boring to witness.
Using vengeance theme, Vinnie Jones is on the warpath to avenge his family. It's all presented in two interweaving timelines, one where he is on a rampage, and the other one where the deed happens, as though regular narrative is not complex enough for the refined production. There's no way to sugarcoat this, the acting is so poor, none of the characters even remotely seem believable.
Everyone acts in a heinous outlandish soap opera manner, while also manage to seemingly reading from a teleprompter as they gaze randomly. It often shows ridiculous scenes of people shouting in profanity, yelling useless banter or just Vinnie Jones doing solemn musing. As a lead, he does try, but the performance is rigid at best. This doesn't create any semblance of connection, and the insipid script gives no aid whatsoever.
Action is practically a couple of people skulking around in random alley or room, firing toy weapon and thus trying to pass Betadine spill as gunshot wound. It has no structure beyond this come and shoot. The setting isn't portrayed well either, lighting would pan inconsistently or the shot would linger needlessly on weird expression. Furthermore, it tries to create emotional tension on the supposed important dramatic scene, yet the acting ruins even this.
The movie will kill only good mood one has when watching it. This one should just be avoided like real life bullet.
