This week we discuss the violent crime drama The Way of the Gun from Christopher McQuarrie. This bullet filled film stars Ryan Phillippe and Benicio Del Toro as two criminals who choose the wrong money making scheme.
We follow these two as they decide to kidnap a surrogate (Juliette Lewis) to a rich couple and hold the fetus ransom. They come up against a savvy team of bodyguards (Taye Diggs and Nicky Katt) and an old bagman (James Caan). Things begin to spiral out of control as they learn a secret from the surrogate and the name of the rich couple.
McQuarrie supplies a dark gun-filled tour de force proving he could deliver more than just The Usual Suspects. It’s hard to find many negatives about this one. Keep the kiddos out of the room, prepare for lots of blood, and find that film.
