Let it go says Sly, sorry Jason.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Killer Elite [DVD] (DVD)
This is a fast paced action movie with an intricate plot full of ex-SAS shadowy figures,government operatives and mercenaries.
I suspect Fiennes novel succeeded as a thriller but this film acts as a vehicle for Statham to try to surplant Stallone"s action hero:he even pinches a line from First Blood [DVD].
The director could have fleshed out the support players a bit more to balance against the over-dominant roles of Statham and Clive Owen.Sadly Robert De Nero was little used.
Good period detail helped create the feel of the 70"s/80"s but Statham retained his signature shaved head and stubble which looked out of place---what about a wig,Jason?
Disappointing overall,but for Statham fans it"s a winner.
