Movie Review: THE KILLER


Director: David Fincher
Starring: Michael Fassbender, Charles Parnell, Tilda Swinton, Arliss Howard, Kerry O’Malley, Sala Baker, Endre Hules

It’s hard not to watch The Killer and see director David Fincher’s knack for precision directly channeled on screen through the title character. Michael Fassbender stars as the killer, who is never given a name and is credited as simply The Killer. He gives a new alias with every flash of his passport or boarding ticket, each one a different sitcom character like Archie Bunker or Sam Malone. Fincher always knows how to drop a dry sense of humor to his typically dark films. Chapter One finds him in Paris in an abandoned WeWork office space. He’s biding his time setting up his space exactly how he needs it to deliver out his job of killing the person in the apartment directly across from him. He has a cot, his assault rifle, and listens to The Smiths. The Killer is narrating his thought process stating he doesn’t believe in luck, karma, or justice and sometimes, it comes down to WWJWBD, “What Would John Wilkes Booth Do?” The job does not go to plan with an innocent woman getting shot instead of the target. The Killer finds himself on the run. His next step is back home to the Dominic Republic only to find his home and compound completely compromised. From there, he’s covering his tracks trying to save his life foreshadowing what may come next. Streaming on Netflix
