This? This is what I’m looking for in my big loud action movies. It’s got a plot, sure: A former Agent comes out of retirement and puts a team together to rescue his mentor. Yeah, yeah. Nothing new there. It’s got explosions, it’s got ass-kicking, it’s got good looking guys and an even better looking girl. It’s nothing new.

Except that the guys are The Statham, Clive Owen, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and Dominic Purcell.

And the girl is Yvonne Strahovski.

The trailer feature’s The Scorpions’ “Rock You Like A Hurricane.”

Throw in Robert Deniro in “I’m actually enjoying the ass off of this” mode?

Yeah, I’m there. I don’t expect it to be a classic. I do expect it to be a helluva good time.

The Killer Elite is directed by Gary McKendry, and the trailer may have touched me inappropriately.

By the way, this is not a remake of the 1975 Peckinpah film. It’s based on a 1991 novel by Sir Ranulph Fiennes.


Oh, what the hell. I’ve been drinking and I’m feeling generous. Here’s an extra treat for you all:
