Christopher Webster [Celluloid 12.03.14] scifi action thriller



Vice is a new scifi actioner starring Bruce Willis, Thomas Jane and Ambyr Childers. It's sort of The Purge, but in a Las Vegas resort where anything goes and there are no laws. How is this possible? Well, let's just say it's full of robots.

This is a concept that feels like it had potential if taken as less as a generic action movie and focused more on its cyberpunk themes. It feels fun, but sort of cheap.


Synopsis:
Julian Michaels (Bruce Willis) has designed the ultimate resort: VICE, where anything goes and the customers can play out their wildest fantasies with artificial inhabitants who look, think and feel like humans. When an artificial (Ambyr Childers) becomes self-aware and escapes, she finds herself caught in the crossfire between Julian’s mercenaries and a cop (Thomas Jane) who is hell-bent on shutting down Vice, and stopping the violence once and for all.


The film is directed by Brian A Miller, whose films tend towards mid-level, straight to DVD actioners.

The film will come to theatres and iTunes from Lionsgate on January 16.
