Armor is on the hunt!
After doing a little more digging, Armor learns that there is another person he can seek out who might know the whereabouts of this boat that Carlos has all the money stashed on. And that would be his brother Dani. Dani (Christopher Lambert) is currently, however, rotting away in a South American prison. But that's the least of Armor's problems at this point. The last he heard was that Dani was in prison. What he doesn't know now is that Dani has been busted out by a man named Cole Parker, who also needs Dani's help as well.
I'd listen to the guy with the gun if I was you Dani...
Being busted out of prison has Dani feeling ecstatic...until he learns who his springer is. Cole Parker (Mario Van Peebles) is also a bounty hunter, but he's been contracted out by the DEA. Sure, Dani doesn't have anything to do with drug trafficking but he has answers that could help Cole's career by leaps and bounds. The DEA is always trying to crack down on drug barons, and Cole believes that Dani will be the key to helping him bring down Peter Loomis. See, Cole knows what Loomis' boat looks like and he knows it's name...but what he doesn't know is where the boat is located. But Dani does know where the boat is.
Cole is hoping that together, he and Dani can find the boat and turn in the money to the DEA which would completely obliterate Loomis' career. The only problem? Dani is a touch greedy and he wants the money for himself...but he can't find that boat without Cole. So the head off in search of the boat, the whole time trying to pry information out of the other while doing what they can to dodge Armor and the battalion of armed men Loomis has sent to track them down! Do they have any shot of finding that boat before Loomis' men catch up to them? Or will they find the boat and be forced to duke it out over who gets the money - greedy Dani or the DEA?
Trust? Loyalty? Friendship? Are those things even
possible for these two??
This is a movie I had never heard of before and probably would have completely passed over if I had seen it pop up in my Netflix queue. It's a totally obscure 90's action movie...which is exactly why my boyfriend The Cinemartyr loves it and picked it for one of our movie dates. Gunmen was a super fun action-comedy movie, filled with guns, stunts, witty one-liners, and tons of violence! And, on the flip side, also pits two hilariously adverse characters together in pretty hostile conditions so the two are constantly bickering and slowly learning to rely on each other. It's a crazy combination, but this was a great, fast-paced watch that action movie fans will love!
