The deal is simple. Buy the stolen drugs for almost nothing, sell them and make a bundle. For Ray and the others, it's the deal of their lives. For Heather, the rich girl, it's a ride on ... See full summary »

| Killers: Not THAT bad
Killers aka Killer Instinct presently stands with the rating of 1.9. 1.9! Do you know how few movies have a rating that low? It's insane, it's universally hated!

This was actually a movie I've wanted to watch since it's release so over 20yrs later I perhaps had higher expectations than I should have. Rest assured they weren't met, as the rating suggests it is bad but certainly not THAT bad.

Interesting fact, Killers was the very first movie by a certain infamous movie studio. I'm referring of course to The Asylum, the company made famous by consistently bad "Mockbuster" movies.

Killers is original to it's credit but demonstrates that it doesn't matter what the Asylum does, it's going to be pretty terrible.

Killers tells the story of a group of street kids along with the rich blonde girlfriend of one who meet in an abandoned warehouse to participate in a drug deal. Suddenly a limo turns up with 5 suit wearing gangsters who proceed to lock the place down and kill everyone they see.

The concept is fine until you realise the film suffers from that zero protagonist issue. I'm supposed to be cheering for drug dealers now? Screw that. Sadly that is a common issue with movies, especially lately. If I can't care about a protagonist then what's the point?

It's not a 1.9, it's simply not that bad but make no mistake it's what you'd expect from an Asylum film.

The Good:

The concept is okay

Paul Logan is on form

The Bad:

No protagonist

Awful sound balancing

Looks really quite naff

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Bullets don't go in?!

Paul Logan is one seriously scary dude
