Killing Zoe Movie Review Summary

Actors: Eric Stoltz, Julie Delpy

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Killing Zoe

This movie was written and directed by Roger Avery (co-writer of Pulp Fiction) and produced by Quentin Tarantino and Lawrence Bender (Pulp Fiction, etc.) However, this is NOTHING like your usual Tarantino film, which it isn't. It takes on a much darker view of human nature.

Eric Stoltz plays an American safecracker who travels to France at the request of an old friend who wants him to help rob a bank. His friend however, has become a serious addict (along with the rest of the members of the gang) and is becoming out of control. During the robbery, he injects himself and goes wild, killing hostages, and eventually turning on his own men. The police begin to move in, and the bank robbers are in a fight for their lives.
Althought this is a fairly interesting movie, it is a big sickening, and difficult to watch. NOTE: Roger Avery is NO Quentin Tarantino

A safecracker in the US gets a phone call from an old friend (and fellow criminal)in France to come and help him rob a bank. When he gets to Paris he sees that his old friend has become a serious drug addict, slowly dying of AIDS, who is running a group of French criminals planning a daring daytime robbery on a major bank. It seems like the perfect plan until the actual robbery where his old friend becomes a drug crazed psychopath killing friend and foe. This quickly gets the cops to surround the bank and keep everyone trapped inside. Full of paranoid suspense and action.
