“Are you dangerous?” “Not to my friends.” Such bland dialogue. Saban Films has revealed an official trailer for a film titled Paradise City, an action crime thriller arriving in theaters this November. A new film from the director of such classics as A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, The Blob, The Mask, Eraser, and The Scorpion King – he’s been laying low since that last one. Ryan Swan must carve his way through the Hawaiian crime world to wreak vengeance on the kingpin who murdered his father. After being threatened by a ruthless power broker, it appears Ryan and his team are all out of options — until an excursion to the closely guarded island community of Paradise City unites them with an unforeseen ally. The film stars John Travolta & Bruce Willis, along with Blake Jenner, Praya Lundberg, Lorenzo Antonucci, Amber Abara, and Stephen Dorff. This looks as derivative & redundant as every other Bruce Willis film recently, no matter who is directing this time. Nothing of interest to see here, just a bunch of macho action nonsense.
Here’s the official trailer (+ poster) for Chuck Russell’s Paradise City, direct from YouTube:
Movie icons and Pulp Fiction costars Bruce Willis and John Travolta face off in this action-packed thriller.
