Based on a true story, "Killer Elite" races across the globe from Australia to Paris, London and the Middle East in the action-packed account of an ex-special ops agent (Jason Statham) who is lured out of retirement to rescue his mentor (Robert De Niro). To make the rescue, he must complete a near-impossible mission of killing three tough-as-nails assassins with a cunning leader (Clive Owen).

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..this coldly violent, overlong cat-and-mouse game requires the principals to declaim their various reasons for offing one another..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
“..it's smart enough to play to its own strengths by casting a genuine action star who doesn't need tricky editing to look good..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
“..there's nothing elite about this disposable time-killer..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
