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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
