Wayne Kramer, the man behind edgy thriller Running Scared makes a foray into action-comedy in Pawn Shop Chronicles – a film that re-teams him with the previous film’s leading man, Paul Walker.
The film centres upon a madcap chase stemming from a missing wedding ring – involving drug addicts, cowboys, and an unintentionally racist Elvis impersonator.
The trailer has dropped and everything seems rather chaotic – but Pawn Shop Chronicles did have us laughing a few times – mainly Brendan Fraser’s Elvis impersonator’s reference to the KKK. The feature also has a solid cast featuring which has us interested – Matt Dillon, Elijah Wood, Vincent D’Onforio, Brendan Fraser, Norman Reedus and Walker are just a few of the stars on board. We just hope Paul’s neck tattoo doesn’t become a permanent feature.
Pawn Shop Chronicles is available on demand on the 12th July 2013.
