3.0 out of 5 stars I FOUGHT THE LAW AND THE LAW WON, 31 July 2013
This review is from: Killer Elite [DVD] (DVD)
Jason Statham plays Danny, a paid assassin who is partnered with Hunter (De Niro). During an assassination in Mexico, Statham almost kills a young girl. He decides to retire, a decision that lasts to about a minute after the credits when he gets a message De Niro has been taken hostage.

Now for the initial strange twists:
The sheik who has Hunter held hostage is the same man who hires Danny.
Danny must kill British agents in order to get Hunter freed. These are "SAS" agents who are tougher than Navy SEALS, or so they say in the film.
These 3 agents must confess on film to having killed the sheik's son. They are trained to resist torture.
And it must look like an accident.

One last thing...they only have the identity of one of the agents. Once the first agent is killed, the SAS suspects something is up...
A few plot twists, some cliche lines, and the movie is over except this movie got bogged down with twists and bad lines to the point that you can't wait for it to end. Much too long to hold my interest all the way through.

This is a typical Stratham type of action. In fact he is wears the same shades. Shooting, chase scenes, roof top jumping, explosions- you know the stuff.

F-bomb, minor sex scene, no nudity.
