Precious Cargo stars Bruce Willis in this rather daft actioner as murderous crime boss Eddie who, after a botched heist, hunts down the seductive thief Karen (Claire Forlani) who failed him. In order to win back Eddie’s trust, Karen recruits her ex-lover and premier thief Jack (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) to steal a cargo of rare precious gems. But when the job goes down, allegiances are betrayed and lines are crossed as Jack, Karen, and Eddie face off in a fateful showdown.
The film is written by Max Adams and Paul V Seetachitt, the former of whom directs and whom originally made Perfect Cargo as a short film back as far as 2008, so it’s obviously been a pet project of his, and no doubt he’s bowled over that he’s attracted a big name for the cast, but while it looks okay, it’s a shame it also looks such generic fare.
There’s no UK release date yet – just a US one for April 22nd.
