The first thing I have to mention is that I was mistaken, and this is in no way a remake of "The Killer Elite
" (1975). I just assumed, based on similar titles and both movies being about contract killers that this was a remake of the Sam Peckinpah movie.
Anyway, I like that this is set in the early 80's, and the plot was set in motion by the British SAS involvement in the Dhofar Rebellion
in Oman in the early 70's. Not a period of history that most people in the US know or care about. (I don't care that much, and I'm a war nerd). Good action, decent cast, (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje
has a large supporting role), Multiple glaring anachronism with the firearms. It's like they weren't even trying. I gave it a 7.
