Never mind the time wev’e wasted though as this concept is now actually a thing starring former wrestler Dave Bautista and Pierce Brosnan. The action takes place at West Ham’s old ground Upton Park and from what I can tell from the trailer – which is a bit of a mess to be honest – involves Bautista’s character’s niece getting held hostage by terrorists and him having to locate Pierce Brosnan – who seems to be Russian – before the end of the football match, otherwise both his niece and everyone in the stadium get blown up.
It’s a pretty simple premise and one that promises to be played out in completely ridiculous, low budget fashion judging by the trailer below:
Wow. This is either going to be one of those movies that is so bad that it’s good, or one of those movies that has a really dumb plot but is executed surprisingly well and actually turns out to be OK but in a way you’re sort of embarrassed to admit that you like it. Either way, it’s going to be awesome – I mean did you see Bautista ride a motorbike off the top of Upton Park? Epic.
