New Trailer for KILLER ELITE

     August 3, 2011


You know what I haven’t seen in a really long time?  A Jason Statham movie with a lot of violence.  Thank goodness for Killer Elite because I think this action-thriller genre could really fit Statham’s acting style.  There’s punching, shooting, explosions, and you don’t really see that in his movies any more.  Also, making the movie look like it was shot almost entirely through a blue filter?  Inspired.  And you also have Robert De Niro once again showing that he is in no way just collecting a paycheck.

Oh, darn.  I ran out of sarcasm.  Hit the jump to check out the trailer and hear idiotic lines like “It isn’t over until both sides say it is.”  Killer Elite opens September 23rd.

Here’s a brief synopsis for Killer Elite:

When his mentor (Robert De Niro) is taken captive, a retired member of Britain’s Elite Special Air Service (Jason Statham) is forced into action. His mission: kill three assassins dispatched by their cunning leader (Clive Owen).

    Statham is to violence as Matt Goldberg is to snark.

    • Michael

      @Adam – not quite — Jason Statham is actually good at violence.

      • Enigmatic

        Clever. Thanks for the laugh.

  • Jarvis

    I was really excited about this when I heard about it a few months back…now after seeing the preview…meh.

    “Oh, darn.  I ran out of sarcasm.” Shut up. You have such a big mouth, no wonder everyone hates your posts. Seriously, my eyes are hurting from reading all of that big mouthed nonsense.

  • The Train!

    perhaps it is because i’ve been to 4chan, but i’ve never found Matt’s style to be overly snarky or sarcastic. for me i think it depends on the object of sarcasm–and in this case, latter day de niro and another formulaic statham vehicle seems an appropriate target. as far as i’m concerned, Matt, keep it up. may you never run out of sarcasm.

  • Tarek

    Well…Not that bad. If only they can remove those silly sex scenes, ’cause they made it looks like a fast & furious movie, intended for teens.

  • Matt

    Cunning? Owen’s character is so lame he takes a beatdown from a guy strapped to a chair. Way to deflate the antagonist

  • Live on Matt

    You are doing a great job.
    I REALLY enjoy your posts. They seem sensible and grounded.

  • Kropes

    The day you run out of sarcasm, Matt Goldberg, is the day this site falls into the category of every other film site, giving a bland, boring idea on what a movie is. Don’t do that, sir.

  • AlexHeyNa

    You know… I’m getting tired of reading your negative posts, Matt. Why do you even bother reporting anything? You talk about everything as though you’re a 15-year-old girl on her period.

    I enjoy the news, but the way you report it is just way too sarcastic. It’s not funny, it’s annoying. Just stop. Please.

    • Seriously…

      Why DO you hate everything, Matt?

  • j jonah jameson

    The shot of testosterone we all needed. I think I’ll go punch a hole in my wall.

    Damn, I sounded like Matt Goldberg!

  • dude

    I wonder if Goldberg would ever be this douchey to Statham’s face?

    Whatever, I’m sold.

    Awesome trailer.

    Statham, Owen and DeNiro in one movie together, that’s going to be a badass movie.

  • snapperhead

    I went to the theatre to see the Expendables and the Mechanic… and I’ll go see this too. You know what I haven’t seen? Transformers 6 or Harry Potter 13 or Ryan Reynolds is Glowing Green. Why? Because Statham makes bad ass action flicks, and those are always better than lame, CG filled, 3D garbage.

  • Ryan

    This movie will be a bit corny but it will be solid kick ass with Statham and Owen. As for DeNiro, compared to his most recent films, this is the one that isn’t just for a paycheck. He seems pretty badass in both trailers.

    Yvonne Strahovski looks sexy as ever. here’s hoping she gets nude lol.
