Lawrence Tierney will do anything to climb the social ladder, even kill a man. In fact, he’ll kill any man or woman who tries to make a monkey of him. What you need to know is that Tierney is a killer and that is all you really need to know. Born to Kill is flat and two-dimensional in this manner. What else there is are simply movements on a chessboard, with each player either falling victim to Tierney or narrowly escaping his hate.
