Precious Cargo (2016)

How about a bout of action starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Claire Forlani as criminals in a strange love-hate relationship, with mainly Jenna B. Kelly as good company. Bruce Willis plays a big bad crime boss who doesn't really have a say... but that's OK, because the movie's not that great anyway.

It's not bad, but I feel like they didn't dare give Bruce enough playroom. Didn't dare to request anything particular from him. Or they didn't have the budget. He comes across as a tough guy who... just... doesn't accomplish much. Doesn't pose that big a threat. Is mostly talk and little acting.

The action's not bad, acting neither, the script's alright and the setting is nice, but... what's the point? What are they getting at here? Feels like another one of those movies with so much wasted potential, that could've been great but just didn't take it all the way. IMDB sums it up as:

A crime boss tries to make off with loot that belongs to another thief.

It sounds pretty simple, and yes, it is.

The relationship, however, is complicated in comparison. It doesn't end like it usually does, and it's not just the main character relationship that takes a few turns, but some of the surrounding ones as well. They're all refreshingly untypical. Flawed. Human.

It's leaning towards a two but...

 rated 3/5: not bad
