Audience Reviews for Acts of Violence

  • Aug 26, 2019
    A rote crime thriller, Acts of Violence is a pretty standard revenge film. When a young woman is abducted her fiancé and his two brothers team-up to find her and discover that she's being held by a crime boss who's running a sex trafficking ring. Featuring Cole Hauser, Shawn Ashmore, Sofia Bush, and Bruce Willis, the film has a fairly strong cast. And the action scenes are especially well-done. However, the script is rather weak and does a poor job at integrating the main plot with a subplot about a burned out cop who's investigating missing girls and gets a lead on the crime boss who's behind their abductions. Also, the film doesn't really develop a sense of family between the brothers. Still, the performances by the cast are able to make up for some of the script's weaknesses. While Acts of Violence is underdeveloped, there's a fair amount of suspense and intrigue and it does some interesting things with the material.

    An enjoyable enough action movie, especially considering it has Bruce Willis, who hasn't been in many good films recently. It's fresh enough to avoid the usual clichés, even if the ending is rushed. Good enough.
