“Kill Shot” – In the thriller “Killshot,” based on the Elmore Leonard novel of the same name, a woman and her blue-collar husband become the targets of two killers after they stumble on an extortion plot hatched by the bad guys. Carmen (Diane Lane) saw the scam and now she and Wayne (Thomas Jane), her ironworker husband, have to pay. Blackbird (Mickey Rourke) kills smart and deadly. Richie (Joseph Gordon Levitt) kills stupid and crazy. Both are out to erase any living evidence – and when these lethal partners take up the chase, a safe place from killing is awfully hard to find.
The movie “Killshot” was originally scheduled for a 2005 theatrical release – so, while watching it, your eyes are not playing tricks on you. The actors are four years younger, literally, in the movie, than they are in real life, currently.
