21st Sep 11'
There's a moment, about 90 minutes into Jason Statham's latest vehicle, Killer Elite, when his character's blonde Australian girlfriend, standing in a Parisian hotel room clad in only a bed sheet, sighs, "When will this be over?" Her words may elicit a wry smile from the audience, having to endure what is little more than another boy's own vanity project for Statham, with Clive Owen and Robert De Niro mistakenly along for the ride. Based on a highly controversial non-fiction book by explorer and former SAS man, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the film recounts the story of a secret society of ex-SAS officers sworn to protect their fellow soldiers past and present. Statham plays reluctant hit man Danny, who is drawn back into the killing game from his ranch in Australia when his mentor Hunter (De Niro) is taken hostage.
