It could have been so much more...
18 November 2018 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I must admit that at first glance, at the title alone, I went "nah". This movie was sort of a either it fails horribly or it turns out to be a stroke of genius. And with that in mind, I sat down to watch "Killing Hasselhoff" from writer Peter Hoare and director Darren Grant.

Well, I can honestly say that the movie had an interestingly enough concept that it was founded upon, but the story of the movie just never really found its footing and it ended up as something that really didn't live up to what it could have been and failed to deliver where it could he delivered so much more.

Despite having performances from the likes of Ken Jeong, Jim Jefferies and David Hasselhoff himself, then the movie just settled on a flat mediocre speed. I must say that it was definitely the performance of Ken Jeong that carried the movie for the most part.

"Killing Hasselhoff" turned out to be a movie that was seriously lacking funny situations that would bring about laughs. If it had more top notch comedy, then it would have made for a more wholesome movie. My final rating of "Killing Hasselhoff" has to be a very generic and mediocre five out of ten stars, because this was bland. So very, very bland...
