Bent is an upcoming crime thriller from Bobby Moresco and it will star Karl Urban, Sofia Vergara, and Andy Garcia. I’ll be honest, I’m not a big fan of Vergara. She’s very hit or miss for me and she misses a lot more than not. However, I do like Urban. He’s shown himself to be a pretty good actor. I first saw him in the 2009 Star Trek movie and he was one of my favorites in that film.
This movie looks pretty good from the trailer, though. The problem is that a lot of movies lately have great trailers and then can’t deliver. If you haven’t heard anything about it, here’s a synopsis:
When a drug bust goes wrong, ex-cop Danny Gallagher’s (Karl Urban, Lord of the Rings) quest for justice leads him to the car-bomb murder of a government official’s wife. As Gallagher learns the woman’s secret lover was a seductive federal agent (Sofia Vergara, “Modern Family”), he finds himself under fire. But from who — his own cops, a vengeful drug lord, the CIA, or someone even more ruthless? This pulse-pounding thriller also stars Grace Byers (“Empire”) and Andy Garcia (Ocean’s Eleven).
Bent comes to theaters March 9, 2018.
