The Killer is the new action movie starring the two-time Oscar nominee Michael Fassbender and directed by David Fincher.
After a fateful near-miss, an assassin battles his employers and himself on an international manhunt he insists isn’t personal.
Based on a French graphic novel and adapted by Andrew Kevin Walker (“Seven”), the film at first feels like a high-end take on the usual genre tropes: There’s the assassin with no name, the innocent woman in the way and the methodical list of revenge targets to be pursued. But then our protagonist’s constant patter of narration starts to show cracks, as the Killer often thinks one thing and does another. By the end, you’ll wonder if we know this guy at all, or whether he’s ever really known himself.
The film will premiere in limited theaters on October 27 and will be available for streaming on Netflix on November 10.
