Hunnam plays former LAPD superstar Charlie Waldo, who lives a simple and lonesome life in the woods since leaving the force. He’s brought out of retirement to look into eccentric actor Alastair Pinch (Gibson), who is the prime suspect in his wife’s murder. The search to either clear Alastair’s name or find him guilty finds Waldo contending with gangsters, Hollywood executives and pre-school teachers.
A potentially amusing flick here, even if there is a slight DVD release vibe to it. It’s interesting to see Gibson taking on the role of an alcoholic actor whose mouth can get him in trouble… considering, you know.
The film is directed by Tim Kirby, a primarily television helmer (Veep, Brookly Nine-Nine, Fleabag) whose previous feature was ill-received 2018 Johnny Knoxville vehicle Action Point. Howard Michael Gould (Mr. 3000, Instant Mum) penned the script based on his own 2018 novel of the same name.
Last Looks, also starring Lucy Fry, Dominic Monaghan, Cliff “Method Man” Smith, Clancy Brown and Rupert Friend, will be hitting the U.S. in theaters, On Demand and Digital on February 4th.
