And, it’s also a prison movie!!!
That’s right, the Two Steves (I smell a sitcom) play buddy cops in their new prison movie.
On the surface this may look like the usual, “lets relocate the prisoners only to find out they’re actually important witnesses of some kind or another, and have every corrupt cop and government agent try to take them from our custody, and we’ll also realize we’re in over our heads and have been set up, now with our backs to the wall we’ll let our prisoners help us fight to defend them” rigamarole.
But I assure it’s not! As evidenced in trailer at the 0:51 mark where the guy says, “Manning’s a weapons expert” while Steve Austin lights a can of hairspray on fire (which only a weapons expert can do) and burns some guys face off.
This also means that I too am a weapons expert and have been since I was 13 years old at summer camp when I invented the old “set the hairspray on fire” weapon myself.
Still not enough, then read the official synopsis below!
When former black ops operative Tom Steele (Steven Seagal) and his partner Manning (Steve Austin) are assigned to decommission an old prison, they must oversee the arrival of two mysterious female prisoners. Before long, an elite force of mercenaries assault the prison in search of the new arrivals. As the true identities of the women are revealed, Steele realizes he’s caught in the middle of something far bigger than he had imagined. Fists will fly and bones will shatter as the situation escalates with every passing minute.
Also starring; Michael Paré (The Virgin Suicides, The Philadelphia Experiment), Aliyah O’Brien (Kill Switch, Bringing Ashley Home) and Bren Foster (“Days of Our Lives,” Drowning).
