Bullets fly, curses are hurled, Willis threatens some chumps.
Precious Cargo is a rip-off and a rerun.
This lazily directed and sloppily written heist non-thriller unspools like one of those amusement park distractions where tourists play at being in a movie.
The stupid plot, dismal dialogue, moral turpitude and dispiriting torpor of this movie makes watching it utterly pointless.
You will be hard-pressed to remember anything about it even only a few minutes after watching it, which should come as a relief to everyone involved with its production.
The acting is as underwhelming as the screenplay is under-polished and, although the action does pick up towards the end, there is an underlying misogyny that leaves a distinctly nasty taste.
[A] contender for blandest heist movie ever made.
An absolute waste of time and an insult to action cinema. [Full review in Spanish]
What persuaded Bruce Willis to accept a role in this cheap-looking, poorly scripted, irredeemably derivative crime thriller is a question only he, and his agent, can answer.
Adams stages the opening speedboat chase with aplomb, but the shootouts are much more formulaic and rely heavily on the laughable inaccuracy of the gang's adversaries and sassy sharpshooter Jenna Kelly's penchant for skimpy outfits.
Dire stuff with a mean-spirited, ugly script.
This production clearly ploughed all its budget into a few slick action sequences and the cameo from Willis. It's a pity the film-makers didn't invest in the screenplay.
