Quick Movie Review – The Killer Elite

The Killer Elite

Mac: Some union guy put it all together, bulletproof glass, and then they shot him in bed. I got it from his widow.

A really interesting beginning and a promising premise that is quickly abandoned for a silly, dull plot.  I appreciated the mostly true-to-life approach to gunfights and mortality, but many of the lines seem to come from a completely different movie, and the film fails to follow through with any thematic or narrative force.
