KILLER ELITE ( MA)
It has the star power and an intriguing based- on- areal- event story but this overlong ‘‘ killer vs killer’’ action flick set in the 1980s, doesn’t do enough with its assets to catapult it out of the B genre. It follows Jason Statham’s ex- assassin who is forced out of retirement ( aren’t they always?) to knock off a trio of special forces soldiers who killed the sons of a rich sheikh. The cliches, Aussie acting cameos and dodgy accents are plentiful but so are the nicely staged action scenes.
Extras: ★ ★½ A making- of and deleted scenes.
