Adrian Grienier (Entourage), who starred earlier this year in the Lionsgate Premiere release Marauders, returns to the stable in the action drama Arsenal. Both Grenier and Johnathon Schaech did solid work in Marauders, and it’s great to see them reteam with filmmaker Steven C. Miller with this tough guy driven narrative.
JP (Grenier) risks life and limb to save his kidnapped brother Mikey (Schaech) from a mobster named Eddie King (Nicolas Cage, sporting a hairdo that defies explanation). Helping JP on his quest is a Sal (John Cusack), a detective who will probably take law into his own hands in this vengeance tale.
Marauders was a twisty action thriller that is definitely worth a look (Bruce Willis also stars in that film), and I’m hoping Arsenal also delivers the goods when it hits theaters and On Demand January 6.
Is Grenier believable as an action guy? Do you love the genre laden features that are coming out of Lionsgate Premiere? Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
