Bruce Willis awaits rescue in Extraction trailer

11.19.2015

I remember the good old days when you used to be excited to hear Bruce Willis was in a movie. It made you want to see it, and that includes flicks like HUDSON HAWK. But Willis has been so hit and miss over the years, with such a disparity in quality between them. The highs have been really solid, making you lust for more good Bruce Willis films to come down the pike, and the lows have been low enough to make you wonder if anyone on the set of the movie knew he was actually sleepwalking through principal photography.

Toss EXTRACTION into the fray now, which makes it appear as if Bruce Willis has gotten to the point where he can sleep-sit his way through a flick and still receive a paycheck as if no one noticed or just didn't care.

In this one, Willis once again gets to play a retired CIA operative, only this time he's been kidnapped and is being held by international terrorists threatening to nuke the United States. With no good rescue operation on the table, his kid (Kellan Lutz) goes into business for himself and launches an offensive that'll get his pops out of harm's way and put the kibosh that threat.

It's like a reverse A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD, except it looks even worse - as if we believed that was even possible. But it is, and I have the trailer to show you. You'll get some Gina Carano action as well, but that's not exactly the best selling point, is it?

EXTRACTION gets a day-and-date release in select theaters and on VOD on December 18.

As a Die Hard Bruce Willis fan, I'll watch this just for Carano alone.

I don't know... looks ten times better than VICE, Setup or The Prince. Maybe it's a decent B action flick, even when Willis wil act only 20 minutes probably.

This is proof Willis has given up.

When was the last time Bruce did a good movie?! RED was decent, his last decent film back in 2010 but before that? Sin City 2 was trash as well. It's sad that he never got back into the Drama roles. He keeps doing straight to shitteo movies with small cameos here and there. Why is Bruce Willis in the same boat as Seagal and Van Damme?

Looper, and Moonrise Kingdom were both pretty great films with him in it.

Hey now, let's not drag Van Damme down to Willis' level. Sure, JCVD's stuff all goes straight to video, but at least he still tries. And if anything, he's a better actor now that he was when his stuff played theatrically.
