THE KILLER ELITE

(note the article in the title – this is the 1975 Peckinpah film) Awful. Just. Awful. How could the guy who made “The Wild Bunch” make this? The plot and dialogue are embarrassing (Stirling Silliphant should have taken his name off this preachy, confused, mish-mash script). The less said about the acting (a great cast on paper) the better. And the finale of the tired finale: James Caan stands by and watches two Japanese guys (one in ninja garb) wail away with katanas. No, really. I’m not making that up.
