Hayden Christensen going toe to toe with Bruce Willis sounds like a solid cinematic pairing, and their action thriller First Kill hits Blu-ray and DVD September 5 via Lionsgate.
Christensen is Will, a Wall Street Broker who attempts to bond with his son Danny (Ty Shelton) on an outdoors trip. What begins as a peaceful life in a cabin ends up a nightmare after they witness the killing of a corrupt police officer. After Danny is taken hostage by the criminals, Will must help them escape from a police chief (Willis) who’s hot on their trail. Gethin Anthony, who played Charles Manson on NBC’s Aquarius, co-stars.
The picture is directed by Steven C. Miller, who worked with Willis last year in the engaging action drama Marauders. Johnathon Schaech and Adrian Grenier both delivered excellent work in Marauders, and hopefully First Kill reaches similar heights performance wise.
Special features on the disc includes director’s commentary, deleted scenes, the featurette “Behind the Scenes of First Kill,” and cast interviews.
