DVD: Killers (12)
Friday 29 October 2010
Katherine Heigl clearly has no intention of giving us all a break from these mirthless comedy capers.
This time she meets her dreary love interest, Spence (Ashton Kutcher), in France while holidaying with her parents (Catherine O'Hara and Tom Selleck). The dullards meet in a lift. They agree to meet for dinner, but he has to kill someone first; he's a hitman. Before you can say STOP, they're married. One day she returns home to find Spence grappling with a contract killer. He has a bounty on his head so they go on the run. The leads have zero chemistry, the action is lame and the dialogue clunky. True Lies and Bird on a Wire did this sort of thing so much better.
