Killer Elite

Recommended Posts

Just came back from watching Killer Elite at the local cinema, and thought I'd let you all know that it is definitely worth watching. Great, believable, edge of the seat action, minimal political BS (by today's standards, anyhow), and a fantastic story line.

 

Jason Statham and Clive Owen were more than up to the task, and Robert De Niro's role (though somewhat minimal) was memorable.

Maybe I'll check it out this weekend. Still prefer the original, the shoot out in Chinatown was one of the best from the 70's

It has nothing to do with "The Killer Elite", which was the working title of the 1970's film.

 

Killer Elite may (or may not :cool: ) be based on fact, and takes place during the early 1980s: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Feather_Men

The Wiki link changes things a bit, thought it was a remake as that kind of non-creative garbage has taken over movies and TV so much anything original hardly sees the light of day.

Figured I'd clear the air, as I'm also of the opinion that most remakes blow goats :grin:

Just saw "No Country For Old Men" last night...I highly recommend it. 4 out of 5 stars. :drinks:

I haven't seen Killer Elite yet, but to be honest the movie has taken a huge hit for me due to its poster...

Clive Owen is supposed to be a hardcore professional...but look how he handles his handgun... :grin:
