With the upcoming action flick “Precious Cargo,” we are witnessing one of two things: either the continual slide of Bruce Willis into movies that would be straight-to-DVD if his name wasn’t Bruce Willis, or, the career resurrection of “Saved By The Bell” star Mark-Paul Gosselaar (who last year, had a role in “Heist,” a movie starring Robert De Niro that would have been straight-to-DVD if it didn’t have Robert De Niro in it).
Directed by Max Adams, and co-starring Claire Forlani, John Brotherton, Daniel Bernhardt and Lydia Hu, “Precious Cargo” follows a thief who recruits her ex-lover, also a thief, to pull off a job for dangerous bad guy. This isn’t rocket science — here’s the synopsis:
After a botched heist, Eddie (Bruce Willis), a murderous crime boss, 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.
“Precious Cargo” opens in limited release and On Demand on April 22nd. Watch below.
