“Killing Them Softly” is, in its own chatty and slight way, the “Unforgiven” of hit-man thrillers. It’s a gritty, riveting nuts-and-bolts-of-murder tale that vividly illustrates what it is that these much-glamorized thugs do, and the gruesome, agonizing fate of their victims. The guys the contract killer (Brad Pitt) comes after fit this memorable “Unforgiven” quote: “I guess they had it coming.”
