Review: HARD KILL, Aging Action Heroes Die Hard
With the proliferation of streaming services, a new kind of action movie has risen to prominence; the low budget thriller featuring an aging A-list action star. From Mel Gibson to Russell Crowe, former box office titans found a second life as the marquee stars of DTV or direct to streaming actioners made on the cheap; though few have been as prolific as Bruce Willis. With over a dozen credits within the past decade, Willis is quickly becoming the king of this particular sub-genre. Hard Kill is his second offering of the year and his third with director Matt Eskandari. But with this many recent credits under his belt, one has to wonder; is Willis honing his craft or diluting his brand? Ultimately, it all comes down to the quality of the film itself.
