New ‘Killer Elite’ movie delivered lots of brutal action,thrills & more
Open Road Films released their new Jason Statham, action/thriller flick “Killer Elite” into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out today,and I thought it was ok. However, I did find myself dozing off quite a bit.
I don’t know what it was about this flick,but I just couldn’t quite get into it until towards the end. The film stars: Jason Statham, Clive Owen, Robert De Niro, Yvonne Strahovski, Dominic Purcell, Aden Young, Ben Mendelsohn, Lachy Hulme, Firass Dirani, Grant Bowler,and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
In the flick,character Danny (Jason Statham) and a couple of other men,including his mentor Hunter (Robert De Niro) pull off a murder job,but when Danny finds a little kid in the car,he vowed that’s his last job and can’t do it anymore.
Unfortunately, Danny is pulled back into the business when his mentor Hunter gets captured. In order to save him,Danny has to complete a near-impossible mission of killing three very tough assassins who are led by an even tougher,annoying guy named Spike (Clive Owens).
After much crap goes down,Danny and Spike butt heads after Spike’s men get one of Danny’s friends killed. Just when Danny thought he completed his mission,a twist in the plot drags him right back in to make sure his girlfriend Anne doesn’t get killed.
This movie had a ton of conspiracies in it,and towards the end,Danny and Spike battle it out over them. It all led up to a wild conclusion that left Spike stranded in the desert when Danny and Hunter catch up to him to get some money he took after killing off the guy behind the hitman jobs.
I thought the movie was ok to watch. It was definitely better to watch when it got a little past the halfway point. I just kept dozing off at first. For some reason, I just couldn’t really get into it until they picked up the action a little bit more. Jason Statham did a good job as usual,playing the super-tough action dude.
I liked Robert De Niro in this as well. He also got in on the rough butt-kicking action. The fight scenes were brutal,graphic,and left nothing to the imagination. I gave the movie a B- grade because it really did entertain in the end. Follow us on Facebook by Clicking Here. Follow us on Twitter by Clicking Here.
