A proper spy film. Outstanding!

On the outside, Killer Elite seems to be an awesome action flick with an amazing cast and it being based on the true story of Danny Bryce. But on the inside, its not that great. It has no main conflict really and it is basically another Jason Statham movie. Blood, Sex, and Violence are the keywords in this film. I was dissapointed about about all these flaws in this movie.

A solid action movie - A solid spy-action set-up with just the right amount of DeNiro. A great Spy-twister with a limited backstory, but enough action to make up for the difference. Well worth the $6 On-Demand! Statham and Owen make this an enjoyable action bit, while seeing DeNiro in a slightly more subdued, although still exciting, role is just what the Dr. ordered.

would expect much more from DE NIRO movie.

A macho, adrenaline-fix suspenser that plays like the bigscreen equivalent of those pulpy spy novels that once clogged grocery-store checkouts. Full Review

Director-co-writer Gary McKendry seems to know a thing or two about hard-fisted fight scenes, but he muddies up the visuals with obligatory spasms of shaky-cam. Full Review

If you're willing to accept Killer Elite as a shoot-'em-up action movie with good actors taking the spots of the usual lunk heads (but spouting the usual nonsense), you'll be pleased with the film. Full Review

A few awesome firefights does not an action film make, and even De Niro's Ronin-esque interlude can't shake the feeling that the thrill, like the '80s, is gone. Full Review

When Robert De Niro, Clive Owen and Jason Statham unite for an action thriller, we should be able to expect something special. Or at least memorable. Instead, Killer Elite gives us ordinary. Full Review
