Storyline

Spencer Aimes is just your average, undercover, government-hired super-assassin accustomed to a life of exotic European locales, flashy sports cars and even flashier women. But when he meets Jen Kornfeldt, a beautiful, fun-loving computer tech recovering from a bad break-up, he finds true love...and happily trades international intrigue for domestic bliss. Three years later, Spencer and Jen are still enjoying a picture-perfect marriage - that is, until the morning after Spencer's 30th birthday. That's when Spencer and Jen learn he's the target of a multi-million dollar hit. Even worse, the hired killers have been stalking the happy couple for years, and could be anyone: friends, neighbors, the grocery store clerk, even that crabby old guy shuffling across the street. Now Spencer and Jen are on the run for their lives. As their suburban paradise turns into a paranoid game of dodge-the-bullet, they must find out who wants Spencer dead and why, all the while trying to save their marriage... Written by Lionsgate

it's a nice movie
25 March 2014 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

After her boyfriend broke up, Jen decides to go on vacation to Nice with her parents. She promised herself not to deal with any guy during this trip, until she meets Spencer. Spencer is a handsome, charming man who has –according to Jen- something mysterious. He gives her right away butterflies and after a few months, they are a married couple. Everything seems to be completely perfect and it looks like Jen has finally found the love of her life. However, their idyllic marriage turns into a weird nightmare, when all their neighbors and friends try to kill Spencer. He might not have been completely honest with Jen about his previous job as an.. assassin. Despite the fact that he quit his job when he met Jen in France, his former colleagues still want to handle something with him.

Robert Luketic is an Australian director of (generally) romantic comedies. Before the movie Killers, he directed a few other films such as Legally Blonde, The Ugly Truth and Monster-in-Law. The movie is made with a wink to the Mr. and Mrs. Smith film, which was a great success. People consider Robert Luketic as a traditional director, whose name doesn't sound very notorious. Katherine Heigl also played the leading role in Luketic's previous movie The Ugly Truth, so they were no strangers to each other.

It's the first time Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher had to play lovers, but you could hardly notice. They seemed to have a good connection and you could almost feel the chemistry between them. Heigl is an accurate actress who is used to play in romantic movies. In almost every film, she portrays the incredibly innocent, slightly clumsy girl. Most of her characters are so devoted to their job, that they hardly have a social life next to it. She often plays the 'attractive, polite girl-next-door, who tends to talk just a little bit too much. An example of this role is her character in 27 dresses. Ashton Kutcher has been cast in a series of film roles, like What Happens in Vegas. In Killers, he is represented as a sexy, mysterious, gentle man who is immediately captured by the charms of his antagonist. In one word: a perfect husband. You can see that Kutcher has an excellent timing when it comes to eye contact and facial expressions towards his partner. He and Heigl make a cute couple together.

The movie is a combination of an action-comedy story, with a few romantic twists. If you don't know what to do on a cozy Saturday night, I can perfectly recommend you to watch this breezy, entertaining comedy!
