New brand new movie for this week! If you’re a fan of action-packed thrillers, then this movie should be next on your watchlist… ‘The Last Days of American Crime’.
The movie is based on a novel of the same title written by Rick Remender and Greg Tocchini. It is directed by Olivier Megaton and stars Édgar Ramírez, Anna Brewster, Michael Pitt, and Sharlto Copley.
More interesting, the movie was shot in parts of South Africa, mainly Johannesburg and Cape Town. Popular streets like Anderson Street, Durban Street, Marshall Street and Kruger Street all played host to various scenes throughout the film.
In the movie, the U.S. government plans in secret to broadcast a signal making it impossible for anyone to knowingly commit unlawful acts. To keep this from the public, the government creates a distraction, installing a new currency system using digital charge cards.
Graham Brick (Edgar Ramirez), a career criminal never quite able to hit the big score, Graham intends to steal one of the charging stations, skip the country and live off unlimited funds for the rest of his life. But the media has leaked news of the anti-crime signal one week before it was to go live…and now Graham and his team have just a few days to turn the crime of the century into the last crime in American history.
‘The Last Days of American Crime’ is now streaming on Netflix.
