A fable of self-romanticizing paranoia, acknowledged as a splendid private joke played from deep within a corporate potboiler

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Misunderstood at the time of its release, this is essentially a droll parody of espionage thrillers with plenty of chases and shoot-outs presented in an absurdist, mocking tone by director Peckinpah.

Fantastica Daily

An underrated CIA thriller directed by Sam Peckinpah with lots of quirky offhand moments.

Sam Peckinpah knows how to make movies but perhaps he has forgotten why.

The Killer Elite is directed and acted with a certain nice style, but it puts us through so many convolutions of the plot that finally we just don't care.

Shoe-leather tough but refreshingly low key for Peckinpah.
