Dull, formulaic, and chemistry-free, Killers is an action/comedy that's largely bereft of thrills or laughs.

It's pretty much dead in the water as soon as a shirtless Kutcher tries to play suave and utters some terrible French in his first attempt to woo his co-star.

Kutcher and Heigl are unable to bring any warmth to what is at heart a bitter, cynical script. Just awful.

Killers is a lifeless romantic action comedy that might as well have been concocted in a broken beaker, given the paucity of chemistry between the lead actors.

There is a potentially rich satirical situation there, as everyone in the couple's dull planned community turn out to be undercover killers. But whatever germ of an idea there is, it's quickly killed by witless writing and migraine-inducing direction.

If you count the number of hairstyles Katherine Heigl wears in this dreary romcom-with-guns, the tally is likely to be four or five. Ashton Kutcher's facial expressions, one.

A lazy script makes for a cheesy and predictable film that features two crummy performances from stars who are hard to dislike.

A ridiculous and lifeless comedy, this mess of a motion picture is trite and easily-forgettable.

Robert Luketic's "Killers" takes a worn out premise and somehow manages to make it feel even more tired than before.

September 24, 2012 Full Review Source:

A fluffy but harmless action comedy.

October 30, 2010 Full Review Source: Future Movies UK

Everything has a thrown-together feel, as the characters are tossed from romcom situations to action set-pieces and back again with no thought to applying any sort of grace notes to ease the transition.

Robert Luketic's latest flick is a palette cleanser -- a flavourless sorbet if you will -- guaranteed to scrape the flavor of any recent enjoyable film from your sensory memory.

Bland spy rom-com mines violence, stereotypes for laughs.

Perhaps some future social scientist will explain why the traditional romantic comedy transformed during the first decade of the 21st century into the screwball action-comedy, in which bonds of love are strengthened by gunplay, car chases and explosions.

Neither action nor romance, Killers will please all those who see it for Kutcher, disappoint those in search of a story.

I was tested by Killers' gaping lack of a single distinguishing characteristic.

The murderously boring Killers firmly belongs in the dregs of the ever increasing number of rom-com-action movies.

A bloated mess that's not remotely funny -- or suspenseful.

The script is ludicrously overcooked, with too much unnecessary exposition at the expense of laughs, while Heigl's habitual decision to play each role as a nostril-flaring, wild-eyed, squealing shrew is growing tiresome.

Audience Reviews for Killers

Cute, no dept, but still fun as a movie like this can be.

I don't like how they fast forwarded to when Kutcher and Heigl were already married. They cut out so much. Plus the lack of chemistry and idiocy of the actors made the film terrible. Kutcher is sooo cute though. It's worth watching for him.

Jen: How weird is this going to get? Because some things you cannot unsee. 

"Perfect Husband. Perfect Target."

I'm a little shocked to say this, but I actually didn't hate Killers. Of the four Ashton Kutcher romantic comedies I have seen, Killers would have to be my favorite one. Not that that's saying too much, as all his other ones sucked and Killers isn't all that good either. It's not that I have anything against Kutcher; actually I don't hate him nearly as much as most. It's just that he stars in all these romantic comedies that at their core are the exact same thing. 

Aside from the first half hour; which was nearly unwatchable, I would say I enjoyed Killers somewhat. It was completely predictable and Katherine Heigl was much worse than the average romantic comedy leading lady, but it was watchable. And today when talking about romantic comedies, watchable means nearly a masterpiece. 

The story is okay and the action saved this movie. Ashton Kutcher plays a spy who gives it up to marry Jen. Three years down the line, a 20 million dollar bounty is put on his head. So him and his wife have a lot of people trying to kill him. So he has to come clean to his wife about the whole thing. Everything that happens outside of the action follows the same formula as any other unoriginal romantic comedy.

So, I'm not saying that I liked Killers, but I didn't dislike it either. It was for the most part a fun movie. Not nearly as excruciating to watch as What Happens In Vegas.
