I guess I'm going to have to rewatch The Killer Elite as, obviously, it seems I have mised a lot if someone can see something like this in it...

I always liked it. Mostly because of the combination Caan-Young-Hopkins. Especially Burt Young. And the beautiful San Francisco location photography really comes across on the wonderful new master.
It also has one of the worst bloopers in Sam's films (apart from the usual car problems, the damage on the yellow cab changes all the time): When night falls in Duvall phones during daylight while at the same time (few miles away) it is dark night.

I would love to see the ending with Hopkins coming back to life and the three friends sailing off laughing. Why was such an ending possible in Freebie and the Bean (with Alan Arkin reappearing after his death to joke around with James Caan) just one year earlier, and not in The Killer Elite is beyond me.

Seriously, a great movie! Always wanted a special edition.... Never gonna happen but at least it is out in widescreen on DVD. Would love a Blu-ray of it... Wishful thinking at this point but hopefully someday.
