A good movie that could have been better. Some parts were great, others boring, not consistent enough to be great. I say B

This review is from: Killer Elite (DVD)
"If you don't do this job Hunter's a dead man." After a job changes the way he feels Danny (Statham) retires from killing. A few years later he hears that his old partner Hunter (DeNiro) has been captured and he is the only one who can go in and rescue him. Nothing is ever as easy as it seems. This movie is based on a true story (if it comes out as 100% true someone is in trouble) of a British SAS mission. Going in I have to admit one of the reasons I watched it was because of Statham. I know what you are thinking, "but all his movies are the same". I agree with you but I still watch everything he is in. This one is really no different, but it does have better actors with him. This is a movie with so much potential but ultimately was very up and down. Some scenes were very exciting and fun to watch, while others were flat and boring. Not a lot of consistency made the movie a little disappointing, but the ending was great and made up for the down times. I did enjoy this but glad I didn't pay full price in a theater. Overall, a enjoyable movie that could have used a more consistent feel. Worth watching though. One last note...again what is going on with DeNiro. Does he care anymore? Performance seemed very phoned in. I give it a B.
