Launched in 2014, Gutshot Immediately is ready a qualified poker participant who will get in deep with some shady characters after a nasty guess, and he enlists the assistance of a mortgage shark, Steven Seagal’s Paulie Trunks, for cover (as Trunks desires to stay his funding alive).
Let’s get started with the positives. First, that premise is fairly somewhat extra attention-grabbing, no less than on paper, than the standard “disgruntled cop shoots the terrorist” drivel during which Seagal can in most cases be discovered. 2nd, Seagal is not the superstar, and he performs a extra a laugh supporting function. Excellent on each him and the casting director for in the end spotting that his age, and, uh, somewhat portly stature do not precisely make for a plausible motion hero.
Aaaaand that is about the place the professionals finish. Unfortunately, the film fails on virtually each different degree. The plot is paper skinny. The writing limps within the course of each cool and humorous and collapses some distance in need of each. George Eads turns in a tight sufficient efficiency because the lead, however it is not sufficient to salvage this unhappy sell off of a movie. We attempted to discover a damning critic review as an example this extra eloquently, however embarrassingly (if no longer unsurprisingly), we could not in finding any in any respect. That is proper, no person afflicted to observe this film apart from us and, it seems that, simply sufficient random souls to earn it a rancid 14% at the Rotten Tomatoes target audience rating. The handiest other people we believe who need to overlook it greater than us are the oldsters concerned. Shifting on.
