...it wouldn't be much good anyway


Senior Member

Can you please help me with understanding of "it wouldn't be much good anyway"?

Whole sentence:
His attitude to murder would have been that it wouldn't be much good anyway.

    It won't be much good means that it won't bring any benefits, so there's little point in doing whatever it is.

    In the context, which is unusual, I'd say it meant that there'd be little point in committing this murder.
