Boy Kills World

Moritz Mohr | DE/ZA/US 2023 | 115 Min | DCP

A hypermodern cornucopia chock-full of pop-cultural elements from anime and arcades to Mortal Kombat and turbocharged actioners serves as the toolbox for this story of a deaf man named Boy (played by an AMRAP-peeled Bill Skarsgård) who battles the postapocalyptic van der Koy dynasty when his family is wiped out in their annual gladiatorial spectacle The Culling. Now, after years of martial-arts training with a shaman, he’s out for revenge. Boy Kills World is a maximalist action fantasy guaranteed to gratify your greed for gore—and more (that cheese grater, tho!). Coming in strong at a hundred ideas per minute and almost as many annihilated foes.
