Alec is a film critic with a true passion for the film industry & hopes his reviews and articles will help launch his career.

Kill Me Again is one of those films you hear about by word-of-mouth. I'm a Val Kilmer fan and I have to shamefully admit that I hadn't heard of it. Usually the ones you never hear about are hit-and-miss and thankfully this one leans more toward hit than miss.

Jack Andrews (Val Kilmer) is a small-time private investigator, just doing what he can to get by. He owes a large debt to some bad people with no way of paying it back on time. That's when Fay Forrester (JoAnne Whalley-Kilmer) comes into his life. Fay is on the run from the mob and her psycho boyfriend Vince (Michael Madsen). Vince had stolen a briefcase full of money and, in turn, Fay stole it from him and ran. So Fay, in her desperation, turns to Jack and asks him to help her fake her death and give her a new identity. In return, she'll pay him $10,000. Jack knew he wouldn't come by this kind of money again, especially before his deadline, so he accepts. But Vince isn't as dumb as Fay would like to think and he begins to piece together what has happened. With the mob, the cops, and Vince all breathing down their necks, Jack and Fay must find a way to escape....and avoid falling for each other.

The film itself has a good story to it, albeit one that's been told several times before and since. It's your basic noir-thriller with not many surprises. What the film does have going for it is some impressive acting from Val, Michael, and JoAnne. Each one is superb and the chemistry they all have with one another is certainly hard-to-find.The only issue I really had with the film was the love story between Jack and Fay. It felt forced and unnecessary to the film's main plot.

In conclusion, I feel that the film mostly succeeded. Sure, it had its issues but they were mostly minor and didn't have a bad effect on the film. I give Kill Me Again a respectable 3 out of 4.
