“Killer Elite” is a star studded, action film with a surprisingly solid plot. I’m guessing as the storyline is based on a true story, some of the action stunts were not. But they definitely add some entertainment to the film. Taken for just that “entertainment”, my husband and I enjoyed this film more than a lot of critics did. Being big Jason Stathom and Robert De Niro fans made this one a no brainer for us to add to our home collection. Though not a perfect movie it’s well worth seeing on blu-ray.
