In Theaters : KILLER ELITE (2011)

Official Synopsis : A match-up made in tough-guy heaven -- Jason Statham, Clive Owen and Robert De Niro star in Killer Elite. Based on a shocking true story, Killer Elite pits two of the world's most elite operatives - Danny, an ex-special ops agent (Jason Statham) and Hunter, his longtime mentor (Robert De Niro) - against the cunning leader of a secret military society (Clive Owen). Covering the globe from Australia to Paris, London and the Middle East, Danny and Hunter are plunged into a highly dangerous game of cat and mouse - where the predators become the prey.

Genre: Action, Thriller

What to Expect : Testosterone-infused Jason Statham vehicle. I just can't figure out what De Niro is doing in it. The fact that it's based on a true story makes it involuntarily hilarious. Strictly for fans of the genre.

Critical Response : Negative. Not like you didn't see it coming. One critic actually provides a compliment by saying that "The movie's not stupid and that makes it more than bearable and often a little fun." Although nobody accused the movie of being dumb, it has been criticized for having an overly-complicated plot, dull acting and a straight-to-DVD vibe. Rated 26% on Rottentomatoes.com from 19 positive and 55 negative reviews.
