They’re Out to Change the Killing Business.
Imagine a Spinal Tap with contract killers rather than rock musicians and you’ll have a handle on low-budget comedy Killing Gunther. Unfortunately, although some of the film’s silliness does strike its target, the joke wears thin pretty quickly as a documentary crew tags along with a bunch of hapless assassins (led by writer-director-star Taran Killam) as they strive to make their name by killing the world’s greatest hitman. Arnold Schwarzenegger has tongue-in-cheek fun in the title role. But he doesn’t appear until the film is more than half way over.
