Marauders movie full length review - At time thrilling, but at times also too convoluted and just too average

"Marauders" (2016 release; 107 min.) brings the story behind a bank heist. As soon as the movie opens, we are in the midst of a bank robbery carried out by 4 masked guys.

The Hubert National Bank's manager is executed during the heist for reasons unclear. We then switch to the Bank's name sake and President, Jeffry Hubert (played by Bruce Willis). From a phone Hubert makes we get the impression that Hubert may be involved with the heist on his own bank. Meanwhile we also get to know FBI Agent Jonathan Montgomery (played by Christopher Meloni), whom we see in fierce competition with the Cincinnati Police Department relative to leading the investigation. Is Hubert actually involved in the heist? How will the FBI and CPD work together, if at all? At this point we're a good 10 min. into the movie, but to tell you more would spoil your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Couple of comments: this is the latest movie from up-and-coming American director Steven Miller. Here he tackles the action crime-thriller genre. From the get-go, we are thrown into the action. This is a plot-heavy movie, so to give away more of the plot would truly be inexcusable. Let me just offer the general observation that the plot line gets convoluted, perhaps even too much so. Bruce Willis has a fairly small role in, and the true headliner here is Christopher Meloni, best known for his work in the various TV franchises of Law & Order. The script has some great lines. When Hubert is asked by Montgomery whether he leans to the right politically, Hubert sighs "Not this year", ha! I would be remiss if I didn't point out the movie was filmed entirely (but for the last 5 minutes) in Cincinnati, and the downtown skyline and riverfront get played up big time throughout the movie. Being in Cincinnati, it was fun to be able to pinpoint where certain scenes were filmed (for example, the opening bank heist was film in the beautiful Dixie Terminal, across the street from where I work). Also, it rains during the entire film, and living in Cincinnati, I can assure you that while we got our fair share of rain, it's nowhere near as bad as the movie makes it look like... Lastly, there is a great electronic-based score from composer Ryan Dodson (who has scored several of Miller's previous films).

"Marauders" opened at my local hart-house theater here in Cincinnati this weekend. The movie has gotten a lot of attention here due to having been filmed locally, and the Saturday early evening screening where I saw this at was attended nicely. The audience seemed to enjoy the movie, laughing at the right times (for example at that line "Not this year"). I doubt that this will play long in theaters, as the movie is okay but by no means outstanding. This may find a second life instead on Amazon Instant Video (which also premiered it this weekend), and eventually on DVD/Blu-ray. I would've rated this 5 stars, but am adding an extra star due to having been filmed in Cincinnati.
