Killer Elite
Killer Elite starring Jason Statham: DVD Cover Danny Bryce (Jason Statham) is a mercenary, an ex-special ops agent, and the protege of veteran soldier-of-fortune, Hunter (Robert De Niro). After retiring, Bryce is pulled back into the game when Hunter is kidnapped by an Arabian Sheik. His demand: that Bryce hunt down and kill the three former SAS soldiers that killed his sons. Accepting the assignment, Bryce ends up in the cross hairs of Spike (Clive Owen), a former SAS officer, who’s now the point man for a secret organization called “The Feather Men”, which is dedicated to protecting former SAS officers, and their families the violent retaliation of their enemies.

The only memorable things about Killer Elite which is loosely based on Ranulph Fiennes's book "The Feather Men," which itself was loosely based on facts - are the performances of Jason Statham, the usually stiff Transporter star who lets his fists do the talking as Danny, the contract killer who keeps knocking off SAS soldiers on the way to rescuing his mentor (Robert DeNiro) and 
Clive Owen, as the former SAS operative hunting down Danny. They, at least, manage to bring a bit of humanity to this otherwise lackluster film.

The B-movie action directed by first time director Gary McKendry reaches for Bourne-style grit but lacks the intelligence and flair that made those films so exciting.
