Showcase for bad plot, bad acting, and bad martial arts ........
27 November 2012 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

Do not let the presence of interesting actor Michael Ironside, tempt you into watching "The Killing Man". This bad excuse for a martial arts film is tedious, contrived, and rather ridiculous. The story is nothing more than a series of encounters with Jeff Wincott as a programed, back from the dead assassin, eliminating those who could expose this country's involvement in a plot "are you ready?", that the U.S. government introduced the aids virus. Other annoyances include Wincott mumbling "What do you want from me?" countless times, sets that resemble an empty warehouse, a requisite strip club scene, philosophical discussions about killing and redemption, slow motion showcasing, and other total nonsense. Bad, and not good bad by any stretch of the imagination. - MERK
