If you’re interested in seeing Laurence Fishburne and Nicolas Cage tempt their respective fate on the side of a cliff, then Running with the Devil is definitely recommended.
The plot centers on The Cook (Cage), a man who owns a Seattle restaurant but makes most of his money being the right hand of a drug lord named The Boss (Barry Pepper). Fishburne plays The Man, a drug trafficker who unfortunately is way too high on his supply and Leslie Bibb is the DEA agent determined to track them down.
Written and directed by Jason Cabell, Running with the Devil follows a drug shipment from Colombia all the way through the Canadian border, and the feature is reminiscent in tone to such films as Traffic and No Country for Old Men. It’s a solid effort by Cabell, and the story is filled with enough action and double crosses to make it a worthwhile watch.
Other films covered on the show include Villains and Corporate Animals. Take a listen below!
