Reprisal

Star­ring Frank Grillo, Bruce Wil­lis. Direc­tor Brian A. Miller.

The TV Guide - - DVD RELEASES -

Wil­lis, erst­while ac­tion hero, is a bit of an af­ter­thought here: thrown into this generic take-the-bad-guy-down 89-mi­nuter as cred­its click­bait. Frank Grillo is top billed, play­ing a bank man­ager try­ing to stop the man, who robbed his bank and killed a co-worker, from strik­ing again. Wil­lis makes an oc­ca­sional ap­pear­ance as an ex-cop and neigh­bour of Grillo’s char­ac­ter who of­fers him emo­tional sup­port and prac­ti­cal ad­vice. A cynic may well sus­pect he’s there to ease Grillo’s way into be­com­ing the sort of box-of­fice draw Wil­lis him­self once was. The one de­par­ture from for­mula is the bad guy him­self, who gar­ners some au­di­ence sym­pa­thy for his mo­tive.
