Bruce Willis has long been one of Hollywood’s biggest action stars, but in the last 5 years it seems he’s out to also become one of it’s most prolific stars as well. The rise in popularity of VOD has seen a second golden-age in the realm of B-level action and horror movies, Willis stars in approximately 90% of them.
His newest venture Out of Death (not sure what they were going for with that title) sees Willis forced to pull a John Rambo and use the forest to his advantage as he tries to save a hiker (Jamie King) from a batch of dirty cops. Ok, so Jamie King automatically raises the level of any movie that’s marketed to me but this one’s got alot of ground to make up. While the story seems fine enough, and the direction by Mike Burns looks to take full advantage of the locale, there is no denying that ole’ Bruno is phoning these in. You can’t really blame him I guess, who could keep up that energy for 200 films a year.
Out of Death is available on VOD July 16th, 2021
