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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
| Original Score: D
Sam Peckinpah knows how to make movies but perhaps he has forgotten why.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
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.
| Original Score: 2/4
A fable of self-romanticizing paranoia, acknowledged as a splendid private joke played from deep within a corporate potboiler
| Original Score: 4/5
Solid action pic.
| Original Score: B
An underrated CIA thriller directed by Sam Peckinpah with lots of quirky offhand moments.
| Original Score: 3/5
Shoe-leather tough but refreshingly low key for Peckinpah.
