Take every Jason Statham movie you have ever seen, add Robert DeNiro and Amber Heard and watch nothing new. I admit to giving up paying much attention even when the cool Clive Owen showed up.
People were dying and cars were being chased but nothing made any sense. Too many switching sides and the same old action fight choreography I have watched my whole life. There was no reason to make this movie except to train the next generation of fight choreographers and stunt drivers.
Statham is ready to take his career to the next level I believe. Then again, he, like Jennifer Anniston, knows what works for him so why kill the golden goose and take chances with his careers?
I will still watch Jason's movies in the future because I like his style - I just will not expect so much from the combination of co-stars he is able to get to join him in these pictures.
It probably really hurt my enjoyment of this film since I really liked both The Expendables and Death Race , his last two films. Those were goofy but fun and exciting to watch. 'Killer Elite' is just tedious.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
