Marauders | Bruce Willis's slippery Cincinnati banker is surely up to no good in this crime thriller

The rich will pay.

Routine action thriller Marauders casts Bruce Willis as a short-fused, very slippery banking tycoon whose Cincinnati branches are being hit by a slick but unnecessarily savage gang of raiders. Are they simply in it for the money? Or do they have vengeance in mind?

Willis is going through the motions, but Law & Order's Christopher Meloni delivers a far more committed performance as the determined FBI agent investigating the case, while Johnathon Schaech keeps us guessing as a local cop whose motives may be murky or possibly even noble.

Certificate 15. Runtime 98 mins. Director Steven C Miller

Marauders debuts on Sky Cinema Premiere on Saturday 9 September. Released on Blu-ray & DVD by Universal.

Jason Best

A film critic for over 25 years, Jason admits the job can occasionally be glamorous – sitting on a film festival jury in Portugal; hanging out with Baz Luhrmann at the Chateau Marmont; chatting with Sigourney Weaver about The Archers – but he mostly spends his time in darkened rooms watching films. He’s also written theatre and opera reviews, two guide books on Rome, and competed in a race for Yachting World, whose great wheeze it was to send a seasick film critic to write about his time on the ocean waves. But Jason is happiest on dry land with a classic screwball comedy or Hitchcock thriller.
