The Killer is a solid enough spy thriller that falls short of what we know the involved talent can deliver, largely due in part to a script that never picks up steam. It’s never a good sign when general audiences aren’t aware of a new David Fincher film, let alone a Michael Fassbender starring David Fincher film. This is the guy who brought us The Social Network, Zodiac, Seven, Gone Girl, and Fight Club and yet Netflix has been slow rolling any marketing for it. This should be a must watch for any fan of film, though I do caution you temper your expectations and keep in mind that Fincher didn’t write the film.
