Synopsis: Bruce Willis and Frank Grillo star in the new epic sci-fi adventure set in the year 2524, four hundred years after humans started colonizing the outer planets. Retired Military General James Ford (Willis) is called back into service after soldiers on a remote planet are attacked by a hostile alien fleet. The threat against the human race escalates into an inevitable interstellar war. General Ford teams up with General Eron Ryle (Grillo) and a team of elite soldiers in a race to stop the imminent attack before it is too late.
Review: Bruce Willis returns in his second Sci-fi outing of the year titled Cosmic Sin, he’s not alone as he brings along action star and legend in the making Frank Grillo.
Cosmic Sin is written and directed by Edward Drake, who wrote Bruce’s previous space outing Anti-life. Edward seems to have been inspired by John Carpenter, as Anti-life had a vibe of Carpenters Thing to it and Cosmic Sin has a Ghosts Of Mars vibe to it.
Bruce is present for nearly all of the movie, which is usually the first question people ask when they seem him attached to projects these days.
Frank Grillo seems to be having fun in his role and it’s always good to see Frank on screen as he always delivers a solid performance.
Writer and director Edward Drake clearly has a vision of what he wants, and he showcases what he can do with a limited budget. It would be good to see what Edward could so with a higher budget and more time to shoot. With Edward directing Bruce in a few more projects it’s clear they have formed somewhat of a good bond and Edward may well be the director to bring the best back from Bruce.
Overall, Cosmic Sin could have been an epic sci-fi actioner with a bigger budget, but for the budget and schedule these movies get, Edward Drake has pulled together a fun sci-fi movie and you can see his heart was in it.
