My wife and I see over 100 movies a year, having been in the businessand now retired. WE DO NOT READ ANY REVIEWS BY ANYONE. WE TRY TO TELLOUR FRIENDS THAT A CRITIC IS ONE PERSON, HE OR SHE IS NOT US. Criticsare also a dying breed as newspapers disappear.
Therefore, our critique is not biased and based on actually seeing themovie in a theater. Many critics see the movies 5 at a time in aviewing room.Not a real atmosphere to gauge audience reaction. How canyou review a movie without the real deal?
This movie is just deliciously funny. It is not an Academy Award movieit is just plain fun from start to finish. All we want is 2 hrs ofgetting away from the real world. That is the sole purpose of a movie.Keep your attention and have fun where possible. It is full of silly,dumb things but it will leave you breathless from laughing so much. Thechemistry between Heigl and Kutcher is fantastic.
Go and see it based on us, we are real people in the real world.
I thought this movie was a fantastic, upbeat, lively, and quitehumorous way to present an action/romance film. It was the most perfectcombination of Action-related fight sequences and explosions andRomantic-related love interests and cuteness.
My initial thought was,"Oh my gosh who directed this? It was amazing!"then I just assumed that there had to be two directors (one who wasprimarily action-focused and another romance) because that was too goodfor one person!
The script had a few cheesy parts (like all romantic comedies do) butother than that I thought the writers were right on.
I would have to compare it to one of Katherine Heigle's best romanticcomedies combined with Mr. and Mrs. Smith (But done better, funnier,less intense, less stupid, and more interesting).
It was the first well-done action/romantic-comedy in a long time and itwill probably stay that way for a long time.
I enjoyed watching Killers and can't understand why it is getting suchbad reviews. For one thing, I thought it was hilarious, especially theparts where Spencer and Jen were just getting to know each other.
Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigle portray likable characters and seemto fit their roles well.
I like the romantic comedy parts of this movie the most. The action wasa bit cheesy, but it made the movie all the more lightweight and funny.There were a few plot twists at the end that I didn't exactly get-maybe if I watched it a second time I would figure it out.
But, despite these flaws, Killers earns a 10 from me.
Long ago I learned to ignore the critics in the media; fortunately, Ifollowed instinct and had a delightful evening watching "Killers." Thismovie is a refreshingly dead pan spoof of the ultra violent actionmovies popular today.
Katherine Heigl plays the strait laced and slightly neurotic heroinewho gets in over her head when she charms and marries a handsome youngassassin. He retires to a life of normalcy with his new bride but hispast won't let him go.
While this slightly predictable movie won't win any Oscars, it hasplenty of action, laughs, irony, and twists to keep me and the rest ofthe theater entertained.
Jen (Katherine Heigl) is on vacation in Nice with her parents (TomSelleck and Catherine O'Hara), for goodness sake! Though a successfulbusinesswoman, she has been recently dumped by her boyfriend and needsa bit of R and R. However, her father is rather controlling so when Jenmeets a very handsome man, Spencer (Ashton Kutcher) in the hotelelevator, she welcomes the chance to communicate with someone her ownage. In short order, Spencer asks Jen to have drinks with him and sheaccepts at once. What Jen does not know is that Spencer is a CIA-typetrained killer who is quite good at knocking off the world's badelement. However, he has been looking for a way out and, after meetingJen, tells his bosses he's through with assassination and is "gunning"for a normal, suburban life. Big Boss (Martin Mull) is not happy andwarns Spence of future problems. Fast forwarding three years, Spenceand Jen are in domestic heaven, with Jen rising to the top of her firmand Spence establishing his own successful contracting business. Evenso, Spence and Jen's dad are not really the best of friends and thereare secrets everywhere. All of a sudden, Spence receives a postcardfrom his former boss and bullets fly soon after, putting the couple'slife in danger. And, who can they trust, when friends and co-workersseem to be part of the "killing crew"? Will they stay alive? This was afun, fast-moving film with action and romance alike. Therefore, itstands to reason that it would make a good "date night" flick, as itwill please both sexes. The fine cast is part of its strength, withKutcher, Heigl, Selleck, O'Hara and all of the lesser cast membersdoing nice work. Somewhat troubling, however, is the obvious alcoholicproblems of O'Hara, which is played for laughs but is not really funny.Selleck, though, is deadpan amusing in a big way. The scenery in Europeand the USA is very lovely, as are the costumes and camera work. Thedirection is full of life while the script, somewhat contrived, stillhas some original moments. This viewer especially liked the scene wereSpence and Jen's dad were discussing their sharpshooting skills andSpen
