Righteous Kill

Make no mistake about it. "Righteous Kill" is not a righteous movie. It does, however, include killing. In fact, a priest who is a pedophile is killed in the film, so once again "Righteous Kill" doesn't seem like an accurate title. Even if you like fast-paced cop movies, the content of this film is [...]

Risky Business – Filtered

August 22, 1997
