#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – A remake of The Killers (1946) which itself was inspired by the Ernest Hemingway short story. Told instead from the hitmen’s point of view, the killers decide to find out why their latest victim (a race car driver) “just stood there and took it” when they came to shoot him. They also figure on collecting more money. Ronald Reagan plays a rich, double-crossing financier. Lovely Angie Dickinson plays the femme fatale.
Plot: A hit man and his partner try to find out why their latest victim, a former race-car driver, did not try to get away.

cool brutal crime action
Hit men Charlie Strom (Lee Marvin) and Lee (Clu Gulager) bullies a school for the blind to kill teacher Johnny North (John Cassavetes). Charlie is concerned that Johnny didn’t run, the large $25k contract, and Johnny’s $1 million heist with its missing loot. Johnny was a race car driver. The killers decide to track down Johnny’s former mechanic Earl Sylvester (Claude Akins) who recounts the day he met the beautiful Sheila Farr (Angie Dickinson). Jack Browning (Ronald Reagan) and Mickey Farmer (Norman Fell) are shady characters from her past.
It’s got terrific actors in tough roles. I like the simple brutality. Like 1946 version, I still have the same issue with the flashback structure but it’s Lee Marvin’s movie and it doesn’t matter as much. The start remains the most compelling section. Marvin is the bigger star than Cassavetes and the movie is able to keep him as the lead. It does make the flashback less compelling narrative. Someday, somebody should try this without the flashback structure.
