Killers Anonymous: Has the Hollywood hitman had its day?

By Steve Rose

The central gimmick of new movie Killers Anonymous is an AA-style support group where various underworld assassins come to “share”.

 

That’s about all it has to bring to this flagging party, other than underlining how utterly divorced the movies’ concept of the “hitman” has become from reality.

 

The world is tragically full of gun violence and targeted assassinations, but the perpetrators are rarely cool international assassins who make a clean shot from a rooftop far away, or walk away from explosions without turning round (thus making it painfully obvious that they’re the culprit!).

 

And yet these characters have become a tiresome fixture of modern moviegoing. Someone needs to take them out.

I think Hollywood itself has had its day

Movies full of CGI, outlandish plots, bloopers and so on.

Haven't watched a movie in 10 years and I was a major cinephile.
