Killing Gunther: A lot of fun
25 March 2019 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

I'd heard pretty much nothing good about Killing Gunther, the general feeling was that it was an unfunny mess but I beg to differ.

Killing Gunther tells the story of an assassin who forms a team to go after the most well known hitman of them all under the guise of "To be the best you must beat the best". His team involves psychotics, an explosives expert, a poisoner, a legacy, a guy with a robotic arm and a really annoying IT guy!

Truth be told I loved the concept, filmed entirely in a documentary format I was engaged from the start. The characters were hilarious, the jokes on point and it was actually really quite original which let's be honest is something you can't say very often these days.

Starring Arnie on top comedic form this is a really enjoyable comedy effort that ticked far more boxes than I expected. It almost hit an 8/10 but sadly something was missing, and I feel it may have been in regards to the finale which felt like it should have been better.

Regardless this is a really fun little movie and knocks the average Hollywood "Comedy" on its butt.

The Good:

Arnie is on great form

Very funny film

The Bad:

Some really poor CGI

Finale could have been better
