Micro Review: Killer Elite

No one, but no one, kicks ass like Jason Statham. And Killer Elite offers the action star ample opportunity to kick ass. But it also has a multilayer plot and solid performances from co-stars Clive Owen, Robert De Niro and Dominc Purcell. Oh yes, and there is the hotness that is Yvonne Strahovski. This is a solid action picture let down only by over length and a finale that doesn't offer enough non-stop boom. Minor gripes aside, this is a kick-ass thriller with a great performance by Statham and some solid set pieces. I especially enjoyed seeing the man kick two people's asses while tied to a chair. The Stath is pure badass. A Good from me.

  1. I loved this film when it came out not only the heavy duty arse kickery which is superb but the drizzly 70s/80s London setting and the twisty turny plot. A nice genre mash up of spy film and over the top action film.
    Statham gets better and better.
