Â This will be a super short and sweet review. Well, not sweet for anyone involved in making the movie.. but. Oy. It could have been good. The premise was so-so, almost a ‘Hi, I want to be Brad and Angelina, but this Mr & Mrs Smith will be GOOFIER’. Yeah. Not even close.
I could watch anything with Katherine Heigl, bless her cotton socks I’ve loved her since Roswell days. Yep, way before everyone got on the Izzie Stevens on Grey’s Anatomy bandwagon. Ashton, well.. he’s good to look at? But as for loving anything he’s done, or wanting to rewatch it? Not so much.
The premise for the Killers is essentially girl gets dumped, goes on trip with her parents, meets bare-chested Ashton, and oh, he’s a hitman. Pretty by-the-numbers. Except there is NO. CHEMISTRY. I mean, they’re both young and hot, and yet when they meet, its almost as if Ashton’s character latches on to her because she’s literally the FIRST ‘normal’ (ie, person that does not commit homicide) person in the vicinity. Other than that, how they go beyond a first date… is beyond me.
The action? Its just not funny. Its meant to be almost slap-stick, and people trying to kill them being more ‘annoying’ and farcical but to tell you the truth, I was thinking about house chores, and what I needed to do at the time, rather than focusing on the absolute lack of any believable friendship, let alone romance between Ashton and Katherine. SUCH a letdown!
