Killers (2014/Well Go USA Blu-ray)

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: C- Film: B+

Smut videos - videos of people being murdered, it seems to be a rage among the underworld and psychotic killers. 2 men, one kills for pleasure, the other kills because he must. As the two killers stalks their prey they post their 'kills' online and suddenly find each other. But what are they? What is their relationship? Are they rivals, comrades, friends, or something else? The Mo Brothers' Killers (2014) starts as potential torture porn, then becomes something else.

Nomura (Kazuki Kitamura) by day, is a handsome and rich business man by day, but by night he is a killer. He generally prefers prostitutes, loose women who have lost their virtue, but also anyone who threatens his existence. Bayu (Oka Antarra) is a disgraced journalist who went after corrupted politicians and lost, tired of them getting away he gives in to his dark side and kills them, giving them much deserved deaths. Both of them find each other online and begin a strange relationship, Nomura thinks he found someone who is like him or can understand him, he almost becomes a surrogate mentor and encourages Bayu to continue, Bayu feels his killing are just but begins questioning himself... in the end, are they two peas in a pod or a cat playing with a mouse?

This was actually more interesting that I though, instead of just having a murderer(s) they go into the mind of one, why do they kill? When crimes of passion become mixed with crimes of justice the lines of morality begin to blur. Of course when justice is perverted, there's bound to be either a psycho killer or vigilante hero. Question is ...which one?

The 1080p 2.35 X 1 digital high definition image is digitally shot, consistent, but played down to be darker, while the lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 mix complements it as solid, if not always spectacular. Extras include trailers.
