Precious Cargo Blu-ray Review
“Precious Cargo” is anything but precious.
A thief (Jack) gets roped into helping his former lover (Karen) into pulling off a heist in order for her to pay back the money she owes to a deadly crime boss (Eddie). Of course, it wouldn’t be much of a movie if everything went smoothly so expect a few twists along the way.
“Precious Cargo” is the type of movie that was entirely sold on being an action film starring Bruce Willis. Once upon a time, that would have meant something, but now he will star in anything no matter how atrocious it may be. If you’ve seen one of his straight to home video titles as of late you know what I mean. Sadly, “Precious Cargo” is yet another stinker. This brain-dead action movie is filled with idiotic dialogue (“Holy dingleberry!”), misogynistic humor, boring action scenes filled with endless bullets, and a paper thin plot.
In terms of the cast, Bruce Willis is playing a villain again and his performance is further proof that he just doesn’t care anymore. It’s just a paycheck to him at this point. Equally appalling here is the wooden Jenna B. Kelly (who plays Jack’s partner Logan) who cannot act. At all. The only real saving graces here are Mark-Paul Gosselaar (of “Saved By The Bell” fame) and Claire Forlani (“Mallrats”). They do the best they can with the material they are given.
Presentation: 2.40:1 1080p. How does it look? I will say this much, this visually bright movie does shine in hi-def.
Audio Track: 5.1 DTS-HD MA. How does it sound? The track sounds the way many people will like it- loud.
Extras: Lionsgate trailers, digital copy, “Precious Cargo” trailer, a making of documentary, and individual interviews with Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Claire Forlani, and Jenna Kelly.
