The Misfits

Director: Renny Harlin
Year Released: 2021
Rating: 0.0

A group of "ethical" criminals called The Misfits - which include "master of disguise" Ringo (Nick Cannon), "man killer" Violent (Jamie Chung), explosives expert Wick (Mike Angelo, not the critic) - do their best to convince suave thief Richard Pace (Pierce Brosnan) to break into a prison run by slimy Schultz (Tim Roth) and steal the gold he's (allegedly) using to fund terrorism.  Leave it to heinously untalented director Harlin to try to set an Ocean's Eleven spoof in Abu Dhabi of all places - the United Arab Emirates-based Filmgate Productions is trying to make the Middle East look "cool" when it's anything but - except everything about it (save Brosnan, who's ... trying) is pitiful and lame: the acting is exceptionally corny (Cannon is intolerably awful) and there isn't a single original thought used in the scheme.  I agree with the idea that for-profit prisons are inherently evil ... but the movie has nothing else to say about that matter.
