Killer Elite (film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This is not a remake of the 1970 film by Sam Peckinpah. Same title though.Killer Elite is a 2011 action film starring Jason Statham, Clive Owen, Robert De Niro, Yvonne Strahovski, and Dominic Purcell. The film is based on the 1991 novel The Feather Men by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, and is directed by Gary McKendry.
Thought it would be a standard shootem up. It is a bit of a buddy buddy film. Jason Statham's character has to rescue Robert De Niro's character and Statham being the only professional working with some f**kups that don't seem to be able to follow a plan. The action is well done, the era 1980's also well done. Jason Statham carries the film well. Then there is the twist, and another twist and the final twist. Enjoyed it, it was fun.
