Only in it for the money?,
This review is from: Setup [DVD] (DVD)
I am rarely moved to write a negative review of a film, but this one needs addressing before people waste their time and money. Either Bruce Willis and Ryan Phillipe owe 50 Cent a big favour or 50c was all they were offered to take part in this lacklustre vehicle for Curtis Jackson. To paraphrase a far better reviewer than I, "50 Cent went through his whole range of emotions: from A to B". James Remar was the only person in the film who seemed to be taking it seriously. Correction, I think 50C was doing his best, but it was just not good enough.
If this was meant to be a spoof, it was not even slightly amusing. Seeing Bruce Willis and Phillipe Ryan acting as though this was a first or second run-through of the cliché-ridden script was irritating in the extreme.
Watch it when it hits the TV channels in the near future. A turkey in time for Christmas.
