In this wildly original action-comedy, two teenaged boys living with disabilities find escape from their humdrum lives when they’re enlisted by a gruff ex-con to be his accomplices… as wheelchair hit men! Thrust into a surreal world of gangsters and guns, the partnership soon blossoms into friendship as their mentor reveals a soft heart beneath his tough exterior and the boys help him come to terms with his own disability. Hungary’s official submission to the 89th Academy Awards®, Kills on Wheels features stellar cinematography, a mix of live action and comic book-style animation, and a wickedly dark sense of humor. It deftly blends genres, confronting issues of invisibility, prejudice, and loneliness as it boldly flouts all stereotypes and expectations.

Reviews

The Professional meets Murderball. A brilliantly cockeyed premise. Uproariously clever."

"Might have tickled Quentin Tarantino in his formative video store years or inspired Roger Corman in his 1960s pomp."

"Champions the idea that life should be lived to the fullest. An inventive coming-of-age tale."
