Normally I wouldn’t bother too much with Brian A Miller’s essentially direct-to-DVD action movie “The Prince,” because let’s face it looks kinda generic, but what did pique my interest was that it co-stars Rain, the South Korean pop singer turned actor who starred in 2009’s way underrated “Ninja Assassin.” Rain recently starred in the thriller “Soar Into the Sun,” which was pretty entertaining also. Here, he’s playing a bad guy to Bruce Willis’ main bad guy, and you can check out a trailer for the film below.
As for the movie, it’s about “a retired assassin [who is] drawn back into the life he gave up when his daughter is kidnapped. To rescue her, he must confront his former rival.”
Kinda like Liam Neeson in “Taken” sans Albanians, but with Bruce Willis instead. Fair trade, I guess.
The flick stars Patric, Willis, John Cusack, Rain, Jessica Lowndes, 50 Cent, and Johnathon Schaech.
“The Prince” is scheduled to hit select theaters (which basically means the chances of you actually seeing it in theaters is nil) and On Demand this August 22nd.
