Valoraciones de Asesinos de élite
In truth, much of Killer Elite is flummoxed by its own make-up. We expect more sparks from Statham -- more broken bones, beaten bodies, and bloody remnants -- and shots of DeNiro unloading an automatic weapon at the camera suggest something more epic.
You’d be forgiven for mistaking Killer Elite for a remake of the 1975 intriguer The Killer Elite. Rather, the new action picture is a renamed adaptation of Sir Ranulph Fiennes’ 1991 book The Feather Men. But you can’t call a Jason Statham picture...
Killer Elite, in which our protagonist tries to make some sort of mixed metaphor thing about cars and seas, is happy to see DeNiro acting the badass again, and doesn't mention Clive Owen's pornstache out of respect for the man.
The only thing about Killer Elite that’s even remotely original is that it deals in part with the Arab nation of Oman, which rarely shows up in movies set in that part of the world. It’s always Iraq or Afghanistan or Saudi Arabia or Israel, never Oman
The basic plot of Killer Elite is simple enough, contract killer Danny Bryce (Jason Statham) attempts to get out of the “game” after a job in Mexico turns ugly. That is, until his closest friend and mentor...
Sacramento News & Review
A professional assassin (Jason Statham) retires from his deadly game after nearly killing an innocent kid, but a year later he’s pulled back in when his mentor (Robert De Niro) is kidnapped.
The best thing you can say about “Killer Elite” is that it is a competent rendition of a less than skilled script by screenwriter Matt Sherring. There’s guilty pleasure in watching A-list actors like De Niro and Owen elevate B-grade material but gui
New York Post
'Killer Elite" is a snarly Euro-thriller with crust under its fingernails and bad breath. It doesn't care if you like it, which is why I kind of do.
Creative Loafing Charlotte
The assembly-line thriller Killer Elite is basically what The Expendables 2 would look like if everyone except Jason Statham decided to bail on the project.
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.
Based on a semi-autobiographical book I can only hope is better than the movie, Killer Elite has plenty of killing, but the only thing elite about it is the cast.
Over the last decade or so, Jason Statham has proven himself to be one of the more reliable of the newer breed of action movie stars and even when his films haven't always been up to snuff, his mixture of toughness,
The Baltimore Sun
There's some grim diversion in watching Jason Statham, Clive Owen and Robert De Niro kill, kill, kill often while avoiding being killed, killed, killed, in the fact-based but heavily hogwashed espionage thriller "Killer Elite."
Jackie K. Cooper
When you put Jason Statham, Robert De Niro and Clive Owen in a movie then you know you are going to have plenty of action, and “Killer Elite” delivers that and more.
Jason Statham plays Jason Statham in Jason Statham.
Gary McKendry makes his directorial debut in Killer Elite, a Jason Statham shoot-'em-up based on a pseudo-true novel by Ranulph Fiennes.
KILLER ELITE is not a remake of Sam Peckinpah’s 1975 film “The Killer Elite.” Instead, it is based on a British novel “The Feather Men” by Ranulph Fiennes.
If you were bent out of shape by the recent remake of Sam Peckinpah's 1971 Straw Dogs, fear no sacrilege to Bloody Sam with Killer Elite, which has no connection but title to Peckinpah's 1975 CIA action flick.
Jason Statham and Clive Owen have both excelled at being entertaining in even their dumbest projects, from Statham's unfettered cool in something like Death Race to Owen's smarty-pants charm in something like The International.
A barrage of bullets
In the simultaneously silly and overwrought action thriller "Killer Elite," Jason Statham plays Danny Bryce, a professional assassin with a soft spot for women, children and the innocent.
Despite having a perfect cast for a title like Killer Elite, Gary McKendry's feature debut comes across as little more than a generic Jason Statham movie with two high-profile guest stars.
Killer Elite features one proven action star, Jason Statham and two actors who have played fewer action roles, Robert De Niro and Clive Owen.
Although it aims higher than your garden-variety shoot-'em-up, this slam-bang action thriller is the same-old.
Time Out New York
With a beefcake physique that suggests oncoming bodily harm, Jason Statham would’ve made a great ’80s action hero; it’s no coincidence that the bullet-headed Brit seemed at home in the Reagan-era reunion tour The Expendables.
If you're willing to accept "Killer Elite" as a shoot-'em-up action movie with good actors taking the spots of the usual lunk heads (but spouting the usual nonsense), you'll be pleased with the film.
'Killer Elite' Makes Audiences Suffer
Like "The Mechanic," "Killer Elite" stars Jason Statham and surrounds him with a couple of formidable male leads of arguably greater pedigree, Robert De Niro and Clive Owen.
Susan Granger Entertainment Commentaries
With a mucho macho cast that includes Jason Statham, Clive Owen and Robert De Niro, expectations for a high voltage action thriller run high, but they’re undermined by formulaic execution.
Killer Elite is a throwback to an era when action movies still had balls, when muscular bravado easily overcame banal screenwriting and corny narrative earnestness.
Two teams of ex-SAS men find themselves on opposite sides of an ingenious plot. An oil sheik from Oman wants revenge for the murders of his sons. He kidnaps Hunter, to force Danny to come out of retirement and undertake the vengeance.
Killer Elite is a gritty action thriller about an assassin who has retired after a crisis of conscience. Jason Staham stars as highly skilled mercenary Danny Bryce, a retired Navy SEAL.

The Austin Chronicle
Action-film icon Jason Statham is stuck in an overlong, perfunctory thriller.
Killer Movie Reviews
Though inspired by actual events, and based (loosely) on an actual book, The Feather Men by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, THE KILLER ELITE is a vehicle expertly tailored to the particular talents of Jason Statham.
Carrying the "inspired by true events" tag, Killer Elite is based on Sir Ranulph Fiennes' controversial (and supposedly true) book centered on a group of professional mercenaries duped into carrying out someone else's vendetta.
The Sydney Morning Herald
But no one is claiming Killer Elite, the film made from the book, is fact. Any film with Jason Statham in the lead immediately departs from reality for a world of its own where facts take on the same elasticity as the laws of gravity, not to mention...
Yet ‘Killer Elite’ is a movie that rests on the charismatic bald-headed action star, who rewards one of his most well-drawn roles in recent years with an enigmatic performance built upon a rugged tough-guy persona that fits him like a glove.
Killer Elite เรื่องราวเกิดขึ้นในปี 1980 ยุคที่การเมืองกำลังวิกฤต เกิดแต่การลอบฆ่า ลอบสังหาร และนี้คือเรื่องราวที่สร้างมาจากเหตุการณ์จริง เรื่องราวของนักฆ่ามือพระกาฬอย่าง แดนนี่ พร้อมกับป๋าคู่หูอย่าง ฮันเตอร์ ที่ แดนนี่ นั้นเริ่มเบื่อเต็มทีกับการเป็น...
In 'Killer Elite', this is probably the most primal method of attack on display, but even the noisy intensity and frequency of the skull bashings -- and pistol whippings and gut punches -- don't register as anything beyond generic action-picture violence.
Remember that Simpsons where Homer rents Paint Your Wagon because anything with Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood is guaranteed to be a no-brain killfest?
As it is, Killer Elite is simply a confounding, tonally confused misfire of a film that aims for intelligence and relevance but is at its best when at its most trashy.
Killer Elite is a Statham movie with a year of political science under its belt.
A universal urban soldier whose face is so full of stubble it must feel as rough as coarse glass paper whenever it comes into contact with a woman’s skin.
A Jason Statham movie with political aspirations. Statham plays a killer for hire who has to assassinate some ex-British secret-service types in order to rescue his mentor (Robert De Niro).
I looked forward to this SAS thriller for a long time.Would Robert De Niro’s presence be a great motivational factor for Coventry-born Clive Owen to rediscover both form and box office success?
It’s 1980, the text across the screen tells us. Jason Statham in a perm wig, you hope?
Sadly not – but Killer Elite’s period setting does provide an excellent excuse for a retro action movie, based on Sir Ranulph Fiennes’ controversial “facti
