Killer Elite is a retarded Jason Statham film, except it has a great cast with Robert Deniro, Clive Owen and Yvonne Strahovski (from TV’s Chuck). Okay, so she’s not a great actress, but YOWZA.
Apparently, Killer Elite is based on a true story of a group of vigilantes who were part of England’s paramilitary force. They hunted down assassins who were so skilled that the kills were seen as accidents.
Then how did they know they were assassinations? See? It’s plot holes like these that make films like Green Lantern happen.
Written and directed by Gary McKendry, Killer Elite is based on the novel Feather Men by Ranulph Fiennes. I spelled that correctly. Yeah. I like to think of him as Bizarro Ralph Fiennes.
