Good acting, worth watching
Verified purchase
The acting was very good and of course the plot was a true story, so it wasn't wildly imaginative. There were a few too many unlikable, negative characters, (who were not just unlikable, but boring) maybe that's really how they were in the true incident. The main character who did the investigating was very likeable and a great actor. This could have been scarier, considering the content and I would have liked it better, but it's definitely worth watching.

Murder? Who's the killer?
Verified purchase
I never could figure out a few things, like why it was assumed the old guy mayor and his buddy killed the child molester and WHY? They wanted his gold teeth collection? Is that all this was about, gold teeth and old worn coins? I don't understand what motivated the Indians to try and kill the SID officer who BTW was a great actor.
So we have a couple gay morticians pretending to be brothers who collected old coins and teeth improbable reason for murder.
If it wasn't for Michael Jai White I probably wouldn't have finished the movie it was kind of not my thing. So the blame was blamed on the morticians and don't know why. No evidence? True story with more holes than Swiss cheese.

Secrets should remain secret...? Based on a true story
Verified purchase
When I first watched this movie, I couldn't get through it all. This time, I stuck with it. At the ending, I actually cried. Because the secret is ever so touching and sad. Remember, this is based on a true story. This movie isn't based on a simple
Investigation... it's based on love . Wait for the ending credits before you stop watching.

not much action; just one long investigation
Verified purchase
There was a murder. There was a strange investigation. Almost didn't watch because "comedy" was part of the description; I never laughed. This is a drama and I did like the story. This was first in recommendation row; apparently I will just watch whatever is first in recommendation row because so far it has been worth watching. I like action and violence and shooting and punching and kicking; maybe the next one; whatever.

I enjoyed the movie, although the relationship between the two "brothers" was very odd. Michael Jai White was outstanding, in making his role come alive with quick wit and a bit of sarcasm!

Making a Killing was not very good entertainment.
Verified purchase
I wanted to see this movie since it was based on a true story that took place in Colorado. So many facts were changed that it wasn't enjoyable to me. Don't waste your time watching.

Good Characters * Good Plot * Good Acting
Verified purchase
The movie seemed to start off slow, but had a purpose. It was far better than I was expecting. The ending was not predictable. All of the cast was top notch. Read after the movie ends. . . interesting how this true story ended in the very end, too.
