An ex-special op is caught in a time-loop and must die a horrible death every day. Think Groundhog Day only with Frank Grillo, Mel Gibson, showers of bullets & samurai swords. Sold? Thought so!
It is great to see Frank Grillo in more leading roles. The man is and always has been as good as an action star, if not better than what Hollywood can produce. The guy is a superb actor, he has the dramatic chops and also happens to be one hell of an ass-kicker. That is a weird combination and a dying breed unless we are talking about Asian actors like Iko Uwais, Tony Jaa, Jet Li or Jackie Chan. And how good was the MMA series, Kingdom? such an excellent series and I am not into sports in any shape or form!
As for Mel Gibson, he has been picking great indie roles with his most recent being the Walton Goggins Xmas action flick, Fatman. In Fatman, Mel Gibson played Santa Claus. He must fend off a hitman hired by a young child who got a lump of coal in his stocking.
The plot for Boss Level doesn’t sound too original and has been done before. Although they are all different movies, the premise is basically the same: Live.Die.Repeat. Films like Edge of Tomorrow, or Duncan Jones’, Jake Gyllenhaal sci-fi, Source Code. The big advantage that Boss Level has here is Grillo and his ability kick the absolute shite out of everything and anyone in his path.
Enjoy The Trailer
Boss Level is directed by Joe Carnahan (Narc, Smokin’ Aces, A-Team) and written by Chris Borey, Eddie Borey (writers of the fantastic Sharlto Copley horror-headfuck, Open Grave) and Joe Carnahan.
The film is due for release on March 5th, 2021 via Hulu Films
