Renny Harlin’s The Misfits begins with an onslaught of cheeky exposition, introducing us to the titular group of criminals, latter-day Robin Hoods who specialize in stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. Their ringleader is master of disguise Ringo (Nick Cannon), who will go on to incessantly narrate the film, almost as if he were pitching it to a board of investors. Alongside him are explosives expert Wick (Mike Angelo), martial arts ass-kicker Violet (Jamie Chung), enigmatic techie Prince (Rami Jaber), and Peace Corps veteran Hope (Hermione Corfield). For their latest assignment, which involves stealing a cache of gold from the Muslim Brotherhood hidden within a Middle Eastern prison, they must solicit the services of Hope’s father, legendary thief and recent parolee Richard Pace (Pierce Brosnan).The Misfits 2021 Movie Download.
For his umpteenth iteration of the suave, globe-trotting man of action, Brosnan can barely muster up the energy to wheeze out his lines. And yet he’s somehow still able to effortlessly flash the mischievous glint that made him so much fun to watch in his prime as James Bond and Remington Steele in the ‘80s. The film, then, sets itself up as an interrogation of a man reckoning with the world leaving him behind, particularly in a scene when Pace wakes up unfulfilled from a mechanical 007-esque tryst with an unknown woman in a Dubai hotel room, leading to his decision to put aside his selfish needs and take on the Misfits’ job. But any line of inquiry starts and ends there, with the filmmakers instantly letting Pace off the hook as he proceeds to lecherously seduce the much-younger Violet, and in front of his own daughter.
Ultimately, The Misfits ends up closer in tone to Brett Ratner’s After the Sunset than John McTiernan’s savvy The Thomas Crown Affair, keeping the narrative simple and the stakes practically nonexistent.
