Sometimes to stop a bad guy without a gun you need a good guy with a gun, or something like that. At least that’s what it looks like in Marauders – an action-thriller starring Bruce Willis as a sinister banker targeted by a group of… marauders… bent on exposing his bloody secrets to the world with bullets and… more blood. They’re not Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men is what I’m trying to say.
The official plot synopsis is as follows:
When a bank is hit by a brutal heist, all evidence points to the owner (Bruce Willis) and his high-powered clients. But as a group of FBI agents (Christopher Meloni, Dave Bautista and Adrian Grenier) dig deeper into the case — and the deadly heists continue — it becomes clear that a larger conspiracy is at play.
While the movie seems like it’s walking down a well-worn action-thriller path, it doesn’t look half bad. It’s got a good cast and looks well shot (hah!), so it’ll be down to the script from first-time writer Michael Cody as to whether or not this movie is an A-grade heist or a B-grade thud. What do you think?
Marauders is due for release in the US on 1 July. Directed by Steven C. Miller, who’s worked with Willis previously on Extraction (and not one of his finest moments), it stars Bruce Willis, Christopher Meloni, Dave Bautista, Adrian Grenier and Lydia Hull.
