Jack (George Clooney) and his girl leave a cabin in the winter woods of Sweden for a little stroll in the snow. Shots ring out, tensions rise, and you get a little quickening of the pulse as you prepare for an action-thriller that just does not materialize.
Turns out that Sweden didnt work out for Jack, so he heads to Italy to hide out from Swedish assassins who arent so eager to let him get away. Jack calls his contact, Pavel (Johan Leysen) and tells him that hes ready to leave the business (were never quite sure what the business is, but we know its very dark, very violent, and everyone is very, very bad). Since Jack is in hiding anyway, Pavel talks him into one last mission, where all he has to do is build a custom assault gun for a beautiful buyer, Mathilde (Thekla Reuten). Jack, who has by this time taken the name Edward for no apparent reason, since the Swedes have had no difficulty finding him, agrees to do the job. More...
First, let me say that Killers was first released in theatres on June 4 of this year. I saw it just about six weeks later at the $3 movie cinema in my neighborhood, which gives you some indication of the profitability of this flick.
That being said, Ill have to admit that it was a nice cheap night out with the girls type of film.
Face it, if we want an evening with pretty people and a few laughs, Ashton Kutcher, Katherine Heigl and Tom Selleck pretty well fill the bill.
When Jen Kornfeldt (Ms. Heigl) gets dumped by her boyfriend, she gets talked into a vacation on the French Riviera with her Mom and Dad (Catherine OHara and Tom Selleck). Moms a lovable lush, and Dads a tough ex-Marine, but they love their little girl. Jen doesnt spend too much time mooning around, desperate and dateless, however, because she runs into hunky Spencer Aimes (Kutcher) while checking into the hotel.
I want to start off by saying I watch a lot of movies and I have never see a movie that left me this speechless! Never have I left the theater and wanted to talk about the movie for hours and then instantly want to turn around and see it again. This movie is and will be without a doubt the movie of 2010.
Christopher Nolan has created a mind-bending ingenious world that leaves you on the edge of your seat waiting and watching to see what is in store around the next corner, or should I say dream. The plot line of this movie will leave you confused, breathless, and satisfied all at the same time. I consider this movie a true masterpiece when you take in the acting as well to go along with this impossible dream of a movie.
