Hopefully, word-of-mouth is enough to make The Kill Team a hit.

Skarsgard excels in the film based on a true story and the 2014 Krauss documentary. Gripping. A must-see.

The Kill Team is an excellent and haunting film, believably acted, and flawlessly directed, that dives deep into a contemporary soldier's story in the war of Afghanistan.

It's a very intense film. It is thrilling, but knowing that this all actually happened made it a little bit different for me.

A true strength of this film is its willingness to honestly portray the shortcomings of military procedure and how war crimes this brazen can happen under this country's nose.
October 26, 2019
Another potent expression of a theme that has become unhappily common in films about America's recent wartime experience.
October 26, 2019
The director's less equals more approach, allows Kill Team narrow focus despite having little new to offer in the way of military corruption.
October 25, 2019
This is not just another war movie. This time, the enemy is the home team, proving that not all soldiers are saints.
October 25, 2019
Krauss digs into the murky, uneasy morality of wartime, but "The Kill Team" doesn't quite convey the brutality of these crimes with the same power that news accounts or even Krauss' own documentary have.
October 25, 2019
"The Kill Team" is so skillfully made, sharply paced (it clocks in under 90 minutes), and generally well-acted (Skarsgard in particular) that its flaws are easy to forgive.
October 25, 2019
The Kill Team paints a harrowing picture of humanity's worst instincts. Its lean runtime and pragmatic approach reinforcing how easily civilization slips away.
October 25, 2019
This war drama, written and directed by Dan Krauss and based on his own same-named 2013 documentary, is tense and compact but also morally nuanced. It stays complex rather than finding solutions.
October 25, 2019
A nuanced look at a harrowing true story.
October 25, 2019
"The movie aims for eloquence...and it hits the mark. In its finest moments, performance, writing, and direction come together with chilling limpidity."
October 25, 2019
If you've seen the documentary, you pretty much know what's going to happen, but a committed cast brings a level of tension to the proceedings.
October 25, 2019
[A]n involving story of the ways war corrupts from within.
October 24, 2019
A chilling and ethically powerful true story that asks why civilian murders keep happening in wars.
October 24, 2019
"The Kill Team" is potent, supported with strong performances from actors who aren't known for consistent work, and Krauss keeps the endeavor crisply paced.
October 24, 2019
Even if Nat [Wolff] never uttered a single phoneme in The Kill Team you'd know where Briggman is emotionally at any moment. Most actors would kill for that talent.
October 24, 2019
Perhaps a bit too straightforward of a film, but Skarsgård and the parts that really work to keep it affecting.
