Killer Elite

February 23, 2012

Hello everyone, welcome to my Blog and let’s start with the review of a movie I recently watched over the weeked called “Killer Elite”.

As the title implies, there is much killing and the protagonists are pretty much “elite” at doing it.

The movie recounts the events of the allegedly true story of a mercenary (Jason Statham) charged with killing three SAS commandos in

exchange for his mentor’s (Robert DeNiro) release at the hands of an Oman Sheikh. A secret society within the SAS get involved when they

have wind of the plot and their enforcer (Clive Owen) gives chase to Danny (Statham) and his acolytes. The movie is full of action and, without

giving away the ending, a number of twists and turns and of the hunter being hunted and vice versa. The running time of this movie is

suprisingly long for this type of action flick with 116 minutes. I did wonder at one point if it was going to end, which isn’t good. What else isn’t so

good is Clive Owen’s mustache. He looks like a policeman on duty, notwisthanding the lack of doughnuts.

So, overall, this movie was a bit of a letdown. The fact that it was based on a true story usually helps in other movies but not in this one.
