At last! The greatly anticipated Quentin Tarantino production Killshot arrives in stores on DVD and Blu-ray this Tuesday, May 26. Directed by Oscar nominee John Madden (Shakespeare in Love) and featuring Oscar nominated actor Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler), Killshot is Hossein Amini’s clever and lean adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s seminal ‘80s crime novel.
Carmen Colson (Diane Lane) and her husband Wayne (Thomas Jane) believe themselves safe in the Federal Witness Protection Program after agreeing to testify against mafia hit man Blackbird (Mickey Rourke) whom they’d inadvertently witnessed working. However they didn’t plan on Blackbird’s relentless desire to erase them – or that of his psychotic partner, played with chilling acuity by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The ensuing hunt and flight will test and strain Carmen’s nerve, faith and her very sense of self … in a final killshot.
With a performance every inch as compelling as his internationally celebrated breakthrough in The Wrestler, Rourke crackles with energy as the cold killer, Blackbird. Not to be outshone, Lane and Levitt keep pace with explosive and gripping deliveries. Packing more surprising twists than a maze, Killshot is an edge-of-your-seat thriller that will leave you breathless.
Available on DVD and Blu-ray May 26.
