On the poster you will see former action star Antonio Banderas (“The Mask of Zorro,” “Pain & Glory”) holding a gun with a menacing look, and a vintage muscle car at the bottom. The trailer will show you flashes of violence, sex, drugs and all the stereotypes of a modern-day Miami mob film.
“The Enforcer” is the feature film debut for Richard Hughes, who directs with a 90s television mindset. His inexperience is on display; he’s unable to creatively bolster the weak script. Characters interact in a lifeless, overly scripted manner, devoid of any realistic qualities. The dialogue is so bad, you can expect to see this flick showing up at interstate gas stations for $5 in record time. The most suspenseful element to “The Enforcer” isn’t found between credits or in the plot. It’s the unanswered question: Why Banderas would even bother with this movie?
