Review | Killer Elite

Opens: Friday 9/23

Us Rating: *1/2

Car chase. Bullet spray. Car chase. Bullet spray. That sums up this mindless, testosterone-fueled flick. In 1980, a retired special-ops soldier (Jason Statham) returns to action so he can rescue his mentor (Robert De Niro) from captivity. The generic action sequences and eye roll–inducing dialogue ("You might be done with killing, but killing isn’t done with you!") drain the film of all suspense. Nice to see De Niro looking so spry, though.
