About the Movie

Jason Statham (The Italian Job), Academy Award® nominee Clive Owen (Inside Man) and Academy Award® winner Robert De Niro (Raging Bull) star in Killer Elite, "one of the best action thrillers of the year!" (Richard Roeper) When two of the world's most elite operatives -- Danny, a retired contract killer (Statham), and Hunter, his longtime mentor (De Niro) -- go up against the cunning leader of a secret military society (Owen), their hunt takes them around the globe from Australia to Paris, London, and the Middle East. As the stakes rise along with the body count, Danny and Hunter are soon plunged into an action-packed game of cat-and-mouse where no one is what they seem. Based on a shocking true story, it's an explosive, no-mercy thrill ride where the predator ultimately becomes the prey.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: [A] pileup of sub-Bourne action set pieces, sad laughs and cliches. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Sep 22, 2011

Rotten: Jason Statham is enjoyable enough to watch that he can occasionally make one forget just how silly and dull a movie like Killer Elite really is. – Ian Buckwalter, NPR, Sep 23, 2011

Rotten: 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. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Sep 23, 2011

Rotten: Simultaneously silly and overwrought... – Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, Sep 23, 2011

Excellent Action Movie

Exactly what you would expect from DeNiro and Jason Stratham. Rotten tomatoes made a bad call on this one. Great photography, good storyline and plenty of action with a few twists and turns. Do yourself a favor and rent it.

Great action movie

I read a review stating this wasn't an action movie...someone must have watched another movie. This was a fantastic action movie. The fact that it was based on a true story makes it that more interresting but it could have stood on it's own as fiction. If you like Statham's other movies you should like this one as well...only this one is more realistic

Highly watchable!

Ok, this is not a great movie but then again, it is not a bad one. It's a typical Jason Statham movie and if you like him, which I do, it is a fast moving action film with minimal dialogue.. Clive Owen and Robert De Niro both put in good supporting performances. No, it is not going to win any awards but it is an interesting story and fairly well done. Is it worth the price of a rental? Definitely. Was I bored? No.
