What’s an ’80s throwback action movie without a decent rooftop chase featuring a villain with a dastardly mustache? Gary McKendry’s “Killer Elite” definitely has that part of the genre covered. Check out Jason Statham running from Clive Owen’s killer ‘stache below.
Based on a true story, Killer Elite races across the globe from Australia to Paris, London and the Middle East in the action-packed account of an ex-special ops agent (Jason Statham) who is lured out of retirement to rescue his mentor (Robert De Niro). To make the rescue, he must complete a near-impossible mission of killing three tough-as-nails assassins with a cunning leader (Clive Owen).
Starring Jason Statham, Robert De Niro, Clive Owen, Yvonne Strahovski, Dominic Purcell, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Grant Bowler, Michael Dorman, and Ben Mendelsohn.
The rooftop cavortin’ begins September 23, 2011.
