Who knows if Standoff is going to be great cinema (it won’t), but Laurence Fishburne on a kill crazy rampage at a funeral? Sign me up. And this trailer is definitely right up my alley. Check it out below.
From what you see, Fishburne is going way over the top, Thomas Jane is in fine B-grade action movie form, and this looks like we’re going to get exactly what we expect, and that’s just fine with me. Here’s a quick synopsis:
Carter (Thomas Jane), a troubled veteran who gets a chance at redemption by protecting a 12 year-old girl from an assassin after she witnesses a murder. Holding a shotgun with a single shell, he engages in physical and psychological warfare in a desperate fight for the girl's life.
No word on when we might see Standoff, but there’s potential for some ridiculous DTV goodness here. Watch the trailer for yourself.
