Heigl can't save 'Killers'
“Killers” is a cliché riddled mess of a movie that has every questionable plot point and character that is in a film of this nature. The highlights of the film are Katherine Heigl and Tom Selleck’s moustache, who does about as much acting as anyone other than Heigl. Labeled as a comedy, this film really isn’t funny. It is more romantic killing than anything else.
Heigl does a good job with her quirky character. She is the bright spot of the film playing the fish out of water who is swept up in her husband’s secret assassin life. Cute, competent and funny, Heigl is the only actor who seems to be able to act in the film. Everyone else overplays it or…
Ashton Kutscher plays his role as the assassin turned domesticated husband as if he went through the Keanu Reeves’ school of acting. I was actually surprised not to hear him say “Whoa” at any point in the film.
Tom Selleck does not fare much better. Dad
is a safety guy, and he plays that part well enough. Unfortunately, Selleck cannot carry off the last part of the film. There is no fire in his eyes. It was like he was performing the role because he was obligated to.
“Killers” can be avoided by everyone. Heigl fans will enjoy her performance, but there isn’t much else to recommend this tired formula of a film where the audience knows what the twist is long before it is revealed. “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” was a better film by far.
