Movie review: Killers

While our screens were once overwhelmed by the numbers of romcoms (romantic comedies) released, we are now seeing a definite new trend for a new genre – romantic action. Think Mr & Mrs Smith, Date Night, even the Get Smart remake – there has been tons of them and I have to say, I am generally a fan.

I was excited to be invited on Monday to the WA premiere of the latest romantic action (dare I say romaction?) starring Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigel. The movie was Killers and I have to say it wasn’t the best film in this genre that I have seen but there was definitely some value for the ladies in the audience – Ashton walking around for long periods of time with no shirt. He. Got. Buff. Wow. Almost worth the ticket admission just for that.Watch the trailer below to see a sneak preview of what I mean.

Overall though if you are looking for some light entertainment where you can completely switch off your brain then this is worth a look. If you’re not a fan of this genre to start with though – maybe wait for the DVD.

The cliff notes version of the story is that Ashton plays a CIA assassin who has become somewhat jaded with his profession so when he meets Katherine’s ditsy but beautiful character in Nice (that’s in the south of France people) they fall in love and Ashton chucks his career in for a normal life in suburbia. That is until someone puts a contract into play against Ashton and the action hits high gear.


  1. Just wanted to say "thank you" for the movie passes to Tinkerbell. Two very excited little girls accompanied by their daddies had a wonderful time this morning. Much appreciated! x
