Killing Gunther Reviews

February 8, 2019
A cautionary tale about the modern assumption one can achieve fame through a single act rather than putting the work in, the amiable if messy Killing Gunther is saved by Schwarzenegger's exuberant portrayal of the World's Top Assassin (yes, another one!)

Too smart for the 'wacky comedy' box and too outrageously playful to sit alongside standard action fare, Killing Gunther is nevertheless destined to find an audience who will watch it again and again.

Your mileage will likely come down to your fondness for the sorts of hitman action movies that are being sent up.

I liked Killing Gunther enough to recommend it. Look, comedies are meant to make you laugh. I have a low threshold for silliness, and I am a fan of the cast.

Schwarzenegger has a great time hamming it up, and we have almost as much fun watching him have fun.

Won't be the comeback Schwarzenegger fans may be hoping for, but there are enough funny moments in Killam's directorial debut to augur a promising future in film comedy.

All anybody's expecting is rapid-fire absurdities and Three Stooges violence, which Killam serves up aplenty.

An amusing if dispensable mockumentary from former "Saturday Night Live" funnyman Taran Killam, who wrote, directed and stars.

Confident work with some sharp, impish performances and a chance to see Schwarzenegger play as loose as he's even been, keeping up with the practiced comedians in his own inimitable fashion.

Sure, it's a bit much to have [Schwarzenegger] knowingly quoting a bunch of his old catchphrases, but he's having so much fun that it's hard to care.

It's little more than a diverting sketch, but its characters justify its ninety minutes, and Killam's unremitting enthusiasm is occasionally contagious.
