SETUP (Video Release USA 2011)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì

Setup seems to have set its audience up for a cookie cutter delivery of a movie designed to quickly rake in a few dollars rather than truly deliver a good piece of entertainment. There is nothing new here. The actors, including Bruce Willis, do not seem comfortable with their script. Fifty Cent seems miscast for his part. The film as a whole does not deliver.

Storyline

Sonny (50 Cent) teams with Biggs (Bruce Willis), a dangerous mob boss, to settle a score with Vincent (Ryan Phillippe).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. A hardcore Bruce Willis or 50 Cent fan may make it through this film.
