I first came across Killer Elite whilst scrolling through the rental screen on iTunes looking for something to fill a couple of hours with. The reviews talked about ‘a thinking man’s action film’ inspired by “The Feather Men” a book by British legend Ranulph Fiennes. The cast also included Jason Statham, Clive Owen and none other than Robert De Niro. It was a tempting package so I excitedly clicked on rent now. 10 minutes later I knew I had made quite a big mistake, but by then it was too late to ask for my money back.
