Cunning assassin Charlie Wolfe (Simon Pegg) is hired to kill small coastal town temptress Alice (Alice Braga), but he soon discovers he isn’t only one trying to kill her in three tales revolving around the woman. KILL ME THREE TIMES is a very uninteresting dark comedy that is only interesting when Simon Pegg is on the screen as Charlie Wolfe.  The rest of the fine cast is wasted in their badly written roles as I didn’t care what happened to the characters with the exception of Charlie Wolfe.  I wish director Kris Stenders could have filmed a better script so that you could at least care a smidge for the rest of the characters.  This movie is only for Simon Pegg fans.  The rest of you can skip it

 

 

SPECIAL FEATURES:

Two Audio commentaries:

One commentary with Director Kriv Stenders and cinematographer Geoffrey Simpson and the other commentary with Kriv Stenders and producers Larry Malkin, Tania Chambers, and Share Stallings

 

Deleted scene

MAKING OF KILL ME THREE TIMES is a promotional featurette that has cast and crew interviews and clips from the movie.  Simon Pegg liked being able to kill a certain atcorin the film (and same actor was proud to be killed by Simon in the movie).

Q&A from the BFI with Simon Pegg and the producers- Simon Pegg gives some good info about the inspiration for his character

Behind The Scenes photo gallery and poster gallery

Storyboards featurette (five minutes)

FINAL ANALYSIS:  KILL ME THREE TIMES is only interesting when Simon Pegg is in a scene.  The rest of the movie is very skippable.
