The Kill Team
NAME OF FILM: THE KILL TEAM
DIRECTOR(S): Dan Krauss
STARRING: Nat Wolff, Alexander Skarsgård, Adam Long, Jonathan Whitesell, Brian “Sene” Marc, Rob Morrow.
GENRE: Action Film
SYNOPSIS: The story centers on Staff Sergeant Deeks, a charismatic sociopath (played with eerie perfection by Alexander Skarsgård) who orchestrates the murders as it were a game of capture the flag, and Private Andrew Briggman (Nat Wolff), a soldier torn between numbing himself into complacency and being brave enough to report what’s happening. It’s a riveting and provocative look at how soldiers are pushed to dehumanize the enemy.
