Legacy: Black Ops trailer
I had a chance to see Legacy: Black Ops some time ago but never took the chance as it clashed with another screening I was seeing, and I really regret that. Not just because it stars Idris Elba and other names such as William Hope, Monique Gabriela Curnen, Clakre Peters and Eamonn Walker, but because the film was shot in Glasgow fronting for Brooklyn.
I don’t know why that tickled me, it just did. A clever piece of film-making and from all accounts a strong performance from Elba, who is a superb actor, as is Walker and the rest of the names involved.
However there’s not been a lot heard of the film and the Glasgow Film Festival screening in 2010 started a run of festival appearances and finally a DVD release in America in December of last year. Now, finally, it’s coming to the UK on March 11th.
With that comes a new trailer and a new blurb for Legacy: Black Ops:
Taking refuge in a shabby Brooklyn motel after narrowly surviving a failed mission in Eastern Europe, Black Ops soldier Malcolm Gray (Idris Elba) is torn between retribution and personal salvation as he broods over the legacy of his actions.
Haunted by his demons while holed up in his room, Malcolm ponders the ascent of his brother (Eamonn Walker), an ambitious senator with designs on the presidency in this dark and tense action thriller packed with stellar performances.
Here’s the new trailer which is well worth a look, and should make you interested enough to catch a screening come March.
