ACTS OF VIOLENCE

Cert 15 Stars 2

This perfunctory and vaguely sleazy vigilante thriller sees three brothers tool up with automatic weapons to rescue the fiancee of the youngest after she’s kidnapped by gangsters.

PTSD, human trafficking and GPS technology give it a contemporary gloss but it’s most interesting is in the casting of Bruce Willis as a weary cop investigating the case.

It’s obvious his stuntman take the lumps during his brief action moments, which are crowbarred in to big up the role for the 1990’s action star.

This doesn’t augur well for his remake of Charles Bronson’s Death Wish which hits cinemas next week.
