‘The Killer’ Review – One of Us

2 Minute Read
Nov 5 2023

Is David Fincher’s tale of a hit gone wrong worth going to the theater for? Check out One of Us crew’s The Killer review.

Director David Fincher reunites with his writer from Se7en, Andrew Kevin Walker, for this adaptation of the highly regarded French comic series of the same name.

Michael Fassbender is only known by the name The Killer, as the film follows him and his somewhat typical job. Which is hanging out across the street from a fancy hotel waiting patiently for days on end till the target of his assassination contract appears. When he does, despite every bit of professionalism and experience, for once, the killer misses his target. A narrow escape and all seems fine until it’s clear that someone wants him dead for it and has set other killers on him.



The Killer Review

Fincher makes an icy cold character piece here, as most of the dialogue in the film is Fassbender’s own mental narration, describing how to be good at your job as he hunts down those who are hunting him. Chris, Wright, Marco, and Nathan do their best to be total professionals in this review (but they, too, miss the mark).
