Here is the plot description for “Killer Elite”:

A match up made in tough-guy heaven, Jason Statham, Clive Owen and Robert De Niro star in “Killer Elite”. Based on a shocking true story, “Killer Elite” pits two of the world’s most elite operatives – Danny, an ex-special ops agent (Jason Statham), and Hunter, his longtime mentor (Robert De Niro) – against the cunning leader of a secret military society (Clive Owen).

Covering the globe from Australia to Paris, London and the Middle East, Danny and Hunter are plunged into a highly dangerous game of cat and mouse where the predators become the prey.

mentor v student

the best mentor vs. student story/fight is that between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars Episode 3. It’s such a freakin’ awesome battle with so much dramatic weight.

The Force was strong in him

Hard to argue with ‘Star Wars’, whether it was Obi Wan training Luke (great fighter) or Anakin (not so much).

    CHICAGO – From villain to anti-hero to homoerotic fan fiction icon, Loki has traveled a long way from the greasy-haired megalomaniac we have come to love. For most of his cinematic character development, Loki has been a foil to Thor’s massive himbo (n.: a very attractive, often beefy male who isn’t the brightest bulb, but is still able to shine because of his good-natured attitude and respect for women. Male version of a “bimbo”) energy.
