Kill Ben Lyk movie review by Film Threat
Written by Alex Saveliev
Written by Alex Saveliev

The indie, British answer to Rian Johnson’s Knives Out, Erwan Marinopoulos’ Kill Ben Lyk may lack the sophistication, razor-sharp wit and immaculate plotting of its bigger Hollywood brother, but still provides a diverting, mindless 70 minutes or so of quirky, cheeky fun. Perhaps a better comparison would be Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire, as both films similarly shoot themselves in the foot by stuffing one plot complication too many into the otherwise-minimalist narrative.

Ben Lyk (Eugene Simon) is a young aspiring social media star – emphasis on “aspiring” – who lives in London with his perpetually-stoned roommate Roberto (Dimitri Leonidas). When he finds out that his namesakes are getting offed, one-by-one, Ben freaks out, posting his reaction online. “How would you feel, likers?” he addresses his followers. “I want you to get in touch. I want to hear what you’ve got to say about all this.”

He’s not the only one with the bright idea. All the other remaining Ben Lyks start uploading their pleas for help. Our hero gets in touch with one of them over Skype… just to see him get murdered, live. Soon after, Scotland Yard apprehends him, along with all the Lyks, in a mansion straight out of an Agatha Christie book.

Marinopoulos, along with his two co-writers, have a knack for line delivery and visual humor. The film’s opening scene involves role-playing during an infidelity, wherein the man’s, ahem, costume almost saves him from imminent death by bullet. The ex-commander, still amped up from his war days, plans out an escape with the banker, of all people (“Of course I’m f*****g in!” the banker states before hesitating: “You’ve got any coke?”). “You’re the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen!” our hero proclaims to the female Lyk. “I haven’t felt this way since I watched Mulan!”

Eugene Simon, as the bumbling idiot savant, makes for a charming enough protagonist, if he does overdo it a little on the bumbling. The film’s not without its rough patches: there’s some awkward acting, a few scenes run too long. Not all of the jokes land: the transgender bit falls flat; the “incompetent coppers” is a worn-out staple; the female Ben Lyk accidentally shooting folks over and over grows tiresome. Yet the filmmakers propel us over those speed-bumps, tongues planted firmly in cheek. Kill Ben Lyk manages to be entertaining and inconsequential in equal measures. Give it a shot.
