Killer Elite [1975]

Director: Sam Peckinpah
Stars: James Caan, Robert Duvall, Arthur Hill, Bo Hopkins, Mako
Genre: Action, Crime, Thriller
Rating: PG (Parental Guidance Suggested)
Runtime: 122 minutes

James Caan and Robert Duvall star as a pair of CIA operatives in the Bay Area; when Duvall sells out Caan, he cripples him instead of killing him. But Caan fights back, working himself back into shape and back into service to protect a visiting dignitary who is targeted for assassination. It all leads to a solid shootout and martial-arts battle aboard the mothballed fleet in the North Bay. Economic and spare, this is one of director Sam Peckinpah's lesser efforts, but still features his skillful direction of action scenes. An intriguing cast includes Arthur Hill, Mako, and Bo Hopkins; this may be the only film that features both Burt Young and Gig Young. --Marshall Fine
