"What happens when you put more than one assassin up against the wall? B-Grade Goodness"
Now before you go running off an say "Oh no, a B movie!", let us explain a few things. Nothing's wrong with a good B movie every now and again because it makes you appreciate great films like "The Wolf Of Wall Street" even more. "Kill 'Em All" is straightforward mix of action with a little comedy that all boils over into body count that would rival one of Rambo's flicks. When's the last time you watched a solid hour of murder just for the sake of getting your action fix?. So are you ready to begin, Let's Unhinge!
So the film begins showing several assassins in their respective elements of precision murder for high dollar returns. There aren't many major names in this film, but the cast members you recognize have played these types of roles before. Except that one guy that just smiles, he's a weird one. The assassins are all noted for their excellent work in the field and this is the reason that they are captured to hold center stage in well you guessed it, The Killing Chamber. Now this isn't just some Mortal Kombat spin off because there is no Shang Tsung, only a bald guy calling the shots from the safety of his lair.
As the assassins become deathly intimate, they begin to ponder the connection between them, as if there was some logical explanation that they would all be captured and pit against one another. Sure there is a rhyme or reason, but when your a murder for hire, can you really be concerned with such trivial matters? Kill, Kill Kill is really the only thing that stands between each one of them and their freedom. Maybe they didn't see the title of the movie?
Now, during the course of the film there are some very unrealistic moments of gratuitous murder, but then again this is a "B" movie and normal rules don't apply. Just think back to the last good "B" film you saw...did it make sense? Did that guy running into a building with one 9mm really shoot about 50 mercs without reloading at least once? Did that vampire really just stand there and wait for the poor peasant boy to put a stake through his heart? You see these things can happen in a B movie because why? "The normal rules don't apply".
So there's not really much to this movie other than some quality kills with a few moments of bravado squished in between choreographed combat. A film like this is perfect when you are looking for some time to kill, but not really needing something with a lot of sustenance to it. It's on Netflix now and it serves it's purpose as entertainment. Enjoy the trailer!
