Killer Elite is a 2011 action-thriller directed by Gary McKendry and features a star-studded cast including Jason Statham, Clive Owen, Robert De Niro, Yvonne Strahovski, and Dominic Purcell. Based on the novel "The Feather Men" by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the movie takes you on a journey to the world of assassins and hitmen. The plot of the movie follows Danny Bryce (Jason Statham), a retired special forces operative who is lured back into the game after his mentor and friend, Hunter (Robert De Niro) is captured by a ruthless Arab sheikh. Bryce's mission is to kill three ex-SAS officers recruited by the sheikh, who he believes are responsible for the death of his three sons.

To do this, Bryce assembles a team of highly skilled operatives, including his old friend Davies (Dominic Purcell) and the mysterious Meier (Aden Young). But things take a turn for the worse when a secret society of elite assassins called "The Feather Men" gets involved, led by former SAS officer Spike Logan (Clive Owen). They are determined to protect their members and stop Bryce and his team at any cost.

The movie is set in different locations around the world, including Oman, Australia, and the United Kingdom, and features a range of exciting action sequences, from car chases to gun battles and hand-to-hand combat. One of the standout scenes is a lengthy and intense fight between Statham and Owen in an old warehouse, which is a highlight of the movie.

The performances from the cast are strong, with Statham bringing his usual tough-guy charm to his role as Bryce, and Owen delivering an impressive performance as the ruthless and uncompromising Spike Logan. De Niro provides solid support as Hunter, Bryce's mentor, and friend, while Strahovski impresses as the beautifully enigmatic Anne.

While the movie is undeniably action-packed, it also delves into some deeper themes, including the consequences of war and the moral dilemmas faced by those who have served in the military. The movie also explores the idea of loyalty and the sacrifices people make for those they care about.

Overall, Killer Elite is a well-executed and entertaining thriller that is sure to satisfy fans of its genre. With its impressive cast, thrilling action sequences, and a compelling plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat, it is a movie that is definitely worth checking out.

Killer Elite is a 2011 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 57 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.4 and a MetaScore of 44.
