I just don't know why they can't make a
good action-packed romantic comedy anymore.
This movie never really lets you know when
you're supposed to laugh - cry - or feel embarrassed.
None of it is well-written or well-staged,
and most is very irritating.
I know, after seeing Killers, just
how I'll get even for sitting through it
Although it starts out in Cannes and looks
like it might be promising, Killers is not a comedy, not
a romance, and not an action film.
It doesn't seem to be about anything --
not love, not relationships, not even about secrets.
It's about 90 minutes of Katherine Heigl
whining and Ashton Kutcher looking smug as they destroy suburbia
being chased by -- well, they never really make that too clear.
Perhaps it's critics.
This movie is just an empty summer mixture
or jumble of worn-out, repetitive romantic comedy exchanges with
droopy, dim, lackluster action.
The plot is almost beyond belief, with
a last act that tells some things that are secret or private,
that's both foolish and repulsive.
But it's surpassed by the complete lameness
of the dialogue and the carelessness of the many fight sequences
and a car chase so awkwardly choreographed that it's hard to
believe it was done by professionals.
