If you wanted to make a film that’s filled with talent who specialized in chewing scenery, I’m not sure you could do better than Nick Cage and Laurence Fishburne. It looks like that’s what we’ll be getting in ‘Running With The Devil’, a story about the ups and downs of the cocaine industry and the problems that might arise when you skim a little off the top.
I mean, I get it. Not all movies need a traditional hero. I’m just not sure who I’m supposed to be rooting for here. It seems like it would be Cage, based on the cut of the trailer, but he seems like kind of a crapfest all on his own. It might be worth watching just to see if they can make any of the characters in this film remotely sympathetic.
When a cocaine shipment is compromised to the dismay of a drug cartel’s CEO, known simply as The Boss, he orders his most trusted henchman, The Cook, and his partner, another master drug trafficker known as The Man, on a dangerous journey to audit the company’s supply chain. As the drugs make their perilous trek across international borders, past gangsters, refiners, and couriers, they are also being tracked by Federal Agents. When The Cook realizes where the network is breaking down, it may be too late to keep the cartel satisfied. In Theaters September 20th, 2019
