The Kill Hole is a 2012 war drama film that tells the story of Lieutenant Samuel Drake (Chadwick Boseman), a former Marine who has just returned from Iraq with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). He is struggling to adjust to civilian life and haunted by the memories of the war, which he cannot forget. Samuel is hired by an enigmatic figure named "The Teacher" (Peter Greene) to track down and kill an AWOL Marine named Private Lionel Dawson (Tory Kittles) who is hiding in the woods. Samuel's mission is to capture or kill Dawson and bring him back to The Teacher.

Accompanied by a private military contractor named Marshall (Billy Zane), Samuel ventures into the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest, where he discovers that Dawson is not the enemy he thought he was. As he begins to learn more about Dawson and his reasons for going AWOL, Samuel starts to question the morality of his mission and the motives of The Teacher.

The film delves into themes of guilt, regret, and redemption as it explores the psychological impact of war on soldiers. The plot is driven by the characters, who are vividly drawn and well-acted. Chadwick Boseman gives a powerful performance as Samuel, portraying the character's inner turmoil and struggle to reconcile his past with his present. Tory Kittles is equally impressive as Dawson, who is both sympathetic and complex.

The cinematography of the film is also noteworthy, capturing the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest while also creating a sense of unease and tension as Samuel and Dawson navigate the wilderness.

While the film is primarily a character-driven drama, it also includes occasional scenes of action and violence, which are well-staged and intense without ever feeling gratuitous. These scenes serve to heighten the tension and further the plot as the story builds to its climax.

Overall, The Kill Hole is a thought-provoking and engrossing film that explores complex issues with intelligence and sensitivity. It is a powerful debut feature from director Mischa Webley and a showcase for the talents of its impressive cast.

The Kill Hole is a 2012 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 32 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.4 and a MetaScore of 39.
