Audiences love action movies, love romantic comedies, and have a soft spot for the comedy genre in general. In theory, if you combine all three and drop a well-known pair of stars in the middle of a high-level adventure, success should be a foregone conclusion.
Of course, it helps exponentially if the movie in question doesn’t suck, but Killers do. Very well, actually. Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher play as a happy married couple living an idyllic life in the suburbs, when their life is suddenly turned upside down on the day after their 30th birthday.
Learning that not only is her husband an elite assassin, but that he has a $ 20 million bounty on his head, the couple must keep up appearances while trying to stay one step ahead of those who seek a big salary by eliminating it. If that sounds like a thinly veiled rehash of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, then you are not too far off the mark.
Heigl and Kutcher are certainly not Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, so they consistently fail to keep the shaky storyline and uninspired sets afloat. Unsurprisingly, the romantic action comedy that features no chemistry between the lead roles, no laughs, and some boring action scored 10% on Rotten Tomatoes, but somehow conspired to smash the most watched list of Netflix, according to FlixPatrol.
