Killer Elite (2011)

Thursday, October 06, 2011

At first, I was hesitant to watch this movie because of the mixed reviews it got... But then, I said to myself, "Fuck it!" and went straight to the cinemas alone... This movie turned out to be a movie I love... Through out the whole damn movie, I was wondering, "Who the hell gave this movie bad reviews? Must be old people..." 

Bad ass, those are the words best to describe this movie... 

I planned on watching this with my girlfriend since she thinks Statham is so damn hot because he's bald and tough but unfortunately TGV Jusco Cheras Selatan didn't show it... Bummer...



THE STORY

Danny Bryce (Jason Statham) was an ex-hitman who quit the job out of conscience... However, he was forced to get back into action for the sake of his best friend, Hunter (Robert de Niro)... In order to save Hunter, Danny must kill three Special Air Service (SAS) officers... His job was made hard by Spike Logan (Clive Owen), a former SAS and member of the FeatherMen - a secret society created by former SAS members to protect their own... 



AWESOMENESS


Action

This movie is indeed action packed... I can't even pick which action scene is the best because all of them kept me glued to my seat... Picture this - Clive Owen VS Jason Statham... Who do think would win? Both are bad asses... Well, if u haven't watched it, u must go and find out for yourself...



What I loved the most about the action sequence was the way the director, Gary McKendry, made them damn suspenseful... The pace of each action scene was just nice and I enjoy them very much... Thank you... 


Before u hit the cinemas, bear in mind that this movie is style over substance kind of movie... Which means, if u want anything other than action, u'll be deeply disappointed... I came into the cinema hall craving for a decent action sequence, not some fancy story line or clever script and I got what I want... I was happy... I had fun watching it... 



NOT SO AWESOME STUFF


Story and Plot

The plot was fucked up shit... It was all over the place... However, it got a good premise... Danny didn't have to just kill three SAS top guns, he must also get their confessions and the killings must look like accidents... Quite challenging huh? The story would be better off if the writer made it more elaborated... However, like I said before, it's a style over substance kind of movie... 



SUMMARY

I don't think I have to spell it more to u because above statements are clear and simple enough for u to understand that this movie is all about the action... Hey, we are talking about Statham here... U can't be expecting anything else other than skull bashing and bullets flying action out of him... If u want drama, clever story and all that shit, watch other movies... 

What about Robert de Niro u asked? Well, his action parts are quite limited since he spent most of his time being locked up... but when he got the chance, he sure gave it all... Yeah, he's quite a bad-ass too...





3.5 out of 5 stars... 


If u like Fast Five, then most probably u will like this movie...
