He's a hit-man. He's suppose to be a culinary master, but his kitchen is empty. He's suppose to be Latino, but he doesn't speak Spanish. Terribly written and with a fake 70's style that is grating and laughable. Obviously written and directed by someone who doesn't know anything about Latinos. Pathetic.
The opening scene of the film sets expectations for savage brutality at any moment. And with that tension Jon Matthews is able to insert cathartic, playful humor to great effect. The score, which channels American Westerns, is a surprisingly perfect fit for this unconventional crime drama set in LA. Richard Cabral fills his role so completely and convincingly that it came as no surprise to learn that Cabral has roots in gang culture. The only thing not believable is that his character doesn't speak much Spanish, because he has the pronunciation of a native speaker. But his powers of sensibility and fearlessness create so much emotional authenticity that it's often easy to forget you're watching a work of fiction. A strong supporting cast and unexpectedly subtle cinematography results in some stunning storytelling for a highly relevant story.
I'm not sure if this film glorifies homicide or just shows what life can be like as a repentant murder. Whatever the case, I became quickly empathetic toward the hit-man Khali even though I'm introduced to him while he's killing four or five Cholos who have first been tied up and gagged. There's loads of humor in this film, which keeps it buoyant and from being a real downer like so many gang films these days. Watch this one only if you like movies about L.A. or gangs, maybe. I lived just south of Melrose at Vine and Willoughby back in the late 80s. Not sure what it's like now, but back then it was a war zone.
Khali (Richard Cabral) is a hired assassin who has retired to care for his ailing grandmother. He plans on putting her in a care facility in Malibu and not one that smells like urine. However, his car, which contains his life savings, gets jacked and Kahali finds himself if a difficult spot having to perform one more hit for grandmother. The story allows us to feel empathy for Khali, in hopes that he manages to snuff someone. But then Khali is pulled by a number of forces in a different direction making the hit difficult to perform. The film is a dark comedy. It has its moments, mostly given to us by Isaac (Adam Ryan Rennie) who plays a pathetic character who we can all laugh at. Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity.
Khali Killer was a great movie. Richard Cabral fit his role and made role come to life on the screen. The plot took you into different directions. The music took me back to the days of Spaghetti Western's. Personally reminded me of a Quentin Tarantino film. What a talented cast and director.
