Synopsis

A match-up made in tough-guy heaven -- Jason Statham, Clive Owen and Robert De Niro star in Killer Elite. Based on a shocking true story, Killer Elite pits two of the world's most elite operatives - Danny, an ex-special ops agent (Jason Statham) and Hunter, his longtime mentor (Robert De Niro) - against the cunning leader of a secret military society (Clive Owen). Covering the globe from Australia to Paris, London and the Middle East, Danny and Hunter are plunged into a highly dangerous game of cat and mouse - where the predators become the prey. -- (C) Open Road Films

Review

This film is billed as "Action Thriller"...lies.  This film is billed as "Keep you guessing", maybe if you make it through the entire movie.  It's not really the story that keeps you guessing, it’s more along the will this ever go anywhere, or maybe why am I still watching this. Of course, you have Jason Statham, who does what he always does in movies. Drives fast cars, gets the beautiful woman and beats a lot of guys up. Sorry DeNiro fans but this is one of his worst films in a long while. Not only is he not on screen much, he doesn’t portray an older special ops type agent to well. Then there’s Clive Owen. He’s actually not too bad but it’s his 1970’s-style porn mustache that stills the show. I can't say if it was a bad script or bad directing but it was definitely a bad movie.  My opinion, don't bother.
