Navy Seals Steal Nazi Gold In Luc Besson's 'Renegades'

Not one of the better Luc Besson-produced movies.

Renegades (NC16)

Starring Sullivan Stapleton, JK Simmons

Directed by Steven Quayle

It’s never a good sign when a movie gets its release delayed for almost two years. And when it’s out, you wonder why they even bother releasing it. (Heard of Netflix?) 

Such is the case for this snoozer produced and co-written by Luc Besson. Blindspot’s Sullivan Stapleton leads a Navy Seals squad in a mission to recover US$300 million in Nazi gold buried in a lake in 1995 war-torn Sarajevo. 

But first they must get past the one-note Serbian villains; for the rest of us, we should be weary of the ham-fisted emotional moments, tin-eared banter, and the flaccid pacing. Ugh. (**)
