A Stylish But Uneven Ride: A Review of Boy Kills World

2024-02-27

“Boy Kills World” throws viewers into a visually stunning yet tonally imbalanced world. Set in a dystopian future, the film follows Boy (Bill Skarsgård), a deaf young man grappling with the loss of his family and the burden of becoming a ruthless assassin.

The film’s greatest strength lies in its aesthetic. The world is a neon-soaked explosion of color, contrasting sharply with the brutal violence that unfolds. The action sequences, though graphic, are choreographed with impressive skill, offering a visceral experience. Skarsgård delivers a captivating performance, portraying Boy’s internal conflict with nuanced expressions and physicality.

However, “Boy Kills World” struggles to find its comedic footing. The attempts at humor often feel out of place amidst the film’s dark and violent narrative. Additionally, the plot, while intriguing in its premise, occasionally falters in its pacing and character development.

Ultimately, “Boy Kills World” is a stylish and visually arresting film that offers a unique blend of action and drama. While the humor may not land for everyone, and the narrative might feel uneven at times, the film’s visual prowess and Skarsgård’s performance make it a worthwhile watch for fans of the action genre seeking something visually refreshing.
