Boy Kills World – Releasing in Limited Theaters
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 75%

When a boy, played by Bill Skarsgård, watches his whole family be murdered, he vows revenge on the dynasty, lead by Hilda Van Der Koy, played by Famke Janssen. His condition of being deaf and voiceless however, forces him to co-opted a voice from a video game as his internal monologue. With the help of his sister’s ghost, and a rebelious resistance group, he might just be able to pull off his quest for vengence.

We love the voice of H. Jon Benjamin and it brings another level to the comedy and action. It makes it feel more like a comic book with his voice awkwardly giving us insight into the thoughts of Bill Skarsgård. The movie does look like a lot of fun and some top notch over the top action for anyone looking for that kind of film.

If you like action thrillers, then this movie is trying to feel like that coffee scene in Swordfish, but at the end of the day, it wont be exactly the same. It still could be a fun run.
