Precious Cargo (2016)
The script was generally okay, but also just down right terrible at times. Additionally, outside of the Willis and Mark-Paul, the casting was kinda shity, especially the casting of the female leads. I will not even comment on their performances. Jenna B. Kelley did well as Mark-Paul's sidekick, but the ladies just didn't feel right for the parts or alongside Mark-Paul. It's almost as though the casting department could not get the fact the Mark-Paul is no longer a teenager in high school out of their heads.
Nonetheless, the movie did not suck because of Mark-Paul. He was the best part. The movie just kinda sucked. The screenplay could have used a couple more polishes, especially in the character department, and the casting was awkward. However, the action was often incredible, and I continue to be an advocate for Mark-Paul having more roles (lifelong fan).
After The Sopranos ended, Mark-Paul and Luke Perry were in the time-slot replacement series John from Cincinnati. They were both great in the show and should team up again sometime soon. For the record too, the up-and-coming writer/director Max Adams is a good filmmaker. This film just fell a bit too short. I imagine he will make something really cool eventually.
