'Marauders' [DVD + Digital]
(Bruce Willis, Christopher Meloni, Dave Bautista, Adrian Grenier, Lydia Hull, et al / DVD / R / 2016 / LGF)

Overview: When a bank is hit by a brutal heist, all evidence points to the owner and his high-powered clients. But as a group of FBI agents dig deeper into the case - and the deadly heists continue - it becomes clear that a larger conspiracy is at play.

DVD Verdict: Let me begin with saying that I do love these kind of movies, and that I'm especially a fan of all-things Bruce Willis. I love everything he's in because he never takes anything too serious and knows when he's in a cheesy dud! You can just see it in his eyes. Not that 'Marauders' is a cheesy dud, but well, I guess yeah, sometimes it is. But not the opening five minutes as that is when the set up is put before us (and the last time anything makes sense!)

"Do not be a hero" are the first words spoken of any meaning, and yet seem to immediately fall on deaf ears! The story is that after a bank heist occurs FBI agent Montgomery (Meloni) is looking into who was behind it. After his team begins to uncover more and more clues about those involved the start to become convinced this is deeper than just a rash of robberies and more than just the gunmen could be involved.

As I say, 'Marauders' is highly watchable and I did like it, especially their masks (wow, now that's creative), but it never reaches above being just a generic action movie that has been overdone hundreds of times before. Once again, like a broken record, this is a movie that puts Bruce Willis' name and picture on the poster and all the marketing, but he is in the movie for about 10 minutes and pretty much only in one location (save the ending). Anyway, and as far as B action movies go, I have seen much worse and so I have to say, again, check out 'Marauders' if you like/love Bruce's films as you won't be disappointed ie: it's a really well done action/crime thriller. t a bad movie at all and is worth seeing, but too generic and predictable to say this is a good movie.
