The Detective Knight2023 : Trilogy and Bruce Willis' Retirement

Detective Knight: Redemption - A Review of a New Scandal Featuring Bruce Willis.

Detective Knight: Redemption is being marketed as the second entry in a trilogy of urban thrillers. However, it is widely considered as just another low-budget scheme that takes advantage of Bruce Willis' limited screen time, which is reportedly only around 10 minutes at the most. The situation is so disappointing that it is no longer humorous.

The fraudulent nature of these films, created purely for commercial gain, has been thoroughly exposed and reported on in various sources. The production model, popularized by the infamous producer Randall Emmett, involves paying a declining star (such as Bruce Willis) a large sum for a few days of filming and a weak script, and then releasing the resulting low-quality direct-to-video films. 

The Frustration Behind the Detective Knight Trilogy: A Tale of Poorly Made Films.

These films, mostly featuring Willis as the lead, continue to flood the market and are primarily distributed in France, causing frustration for those who are tired of seeing these poorly made films.

"Detective Knight Trilogy" is the latest addition to the list of films that includes Anti-Life, Cosmic Sin, Apex, and Out of Death. The first installment, "Detective Knight: Snape had failed in our lands," was released on January 3rd, followed by "Detective Knight: Redemption" which has just arrived. The final part of the trilogy, "Detective Knight: Independence," is expected to be released soon. Although Bruce Willis is supposed to play the lead role, he only appears sporadically throughout the film. The script seems to focus more on the secondary characters portrayed by Corey Large, Jenn Bird, and Alice Comer, who lack conviction in their performances.

This sequel claims to have a unique twist by introducing a group of memorable antagonists, the fanatical Santa gang. Detective Knight must confront them in order to retrieve his badge, which was taken from him at the end of the previous installment. Despite these new characters, the rest of the elements are uninspired and unoriginal - bland narration, generic settings, forced stakes, and an abundance of clichés. The writers appear to have little concern for the artistic merit of this new venture, which is solely driven by financial considerations

Furthermore, they have a history of repeated offenses. Director Edward Drake has previously delivered poor performances in the films Cosmic Sin, Apex, American Siege, and Gasoline Alley. His associate, Corey Large, who serves as a writer, performer, and producer, was involved in the creation of Anti-Life, Cosmic Sin, Apex, American Siege, and Paradise City. In general, these two individuals, along with many of their colleagues, are somewhat involved in a number of shady practices. They can be considered a scavenger mafia, exploiting the remnants of popularity from one of the most revered action stars of their era.

Retirement Planning.

It's not fair to criticize the actor for accepting large payments for a short period of filming. It was recently revealed that the actor is suffering from aphasia, which affects his cognitive abilities. According to an Instagram post from his family last March and reports in the Los Angeles Times, this condition was well-known within the film industry. It is doubtful that the organizers of the advertisement were unaware of his state of health at the time of signing the contract. Testimonies from the film sets support the idea that the actor's health was an open secret. Another article in the Los Angeles Times describes his difficulty performing certain actions or the need for an earpiece to recite his lines.

According to Randall Emmet, who collaborated with Willis, he was unaware of Willis' illness. However, this claim is met with skepticism by the journalist reporting Emmet's words, as he himself rehired Willis for multiple projects in the future. Has the harsh reality of Hollywood's underbelly evolved into a form of crass exploitation? Previously, these films may have elicited indifference or disdain, but now they elicit anger and disgust, particularly among Bruce Willis' fans, who were once the intended audience.

In the aforementioned release, it is announced that the actor is retiring. These three Detective Knights will be among the last feature films of his career. And there is no doubt that they will end up in oblivion as soon as their misdeed is accomplished. Thank you for everything, Mr. Willis, and happy retirement.
