Reprisal is a new action film starring Frank Grillo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and Bruce Willis (Die Hard). The plot follows Jacob (Grillo), a bank manager who seems traumatized after being a victim of a bank robbery that resulted in the death of a co-worker. Grillo’s character then makes it his mission to find the culprit and bring him to justice aided by his neighbor an ex-cop played by Willis. The villain, however (Johnathon Schaech) is one step ahead and kidnaps the wife and daughter of Jacob. The result seems to be a bloody action-packed finale as Jacob and James rush to save Jacobs family and bring the criminal to justice.
The movie comes from Lionsgate and is directed by Brian A Miller (Officer Down) from a script by Bryce Hammons (Gray Area). Reprisal is set for release on August 31 domestically.
On the trailer alone the movie looks like it’s worth a watch on a Friday night with a few beers, whether I would watch this at theaters though, probably not. Reprisal seems like it has roots in the simple old school action movies, that admittedly I grew up on. I like Frank Grillo as an actor and Bruce Willis is rarely bad in anything, so this almost seems like John McLean coming out of retirement to help a neighbor kick some ass.
Whether the movie will turn out to be a well-made action films remains to be seen, but I could definitely see me streaming this when it comes to home release.
