Black Is King is a new movie starring Dwayne Johnson, who has become a very popular movie star in recent years. The film will be opening theatrically around the country this summer, and if you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend that you check out my review!
The movie is directed by none other than the legendary Quentin Tarantino, and stars Johnson as a cop that's out of a job. Finding a way to stay afloat in the crime world, he ends up working as a private investigator for a company that specializes in tracking down criminals. Unfortunately, they are hired by some members of a rival crime family who want to take over the city.
After learning that a drug dealer is going to be selling drugs out of a house owned by a member of the rival crime family, Johnson jumps into action and heads for the location. But, he gets more than what he bargained for when he finds himself fighting off a team of vicious criminals. These guys come equipped with guns and explosives, which they intend on using to destroy the house in which the dealer lives. Johnson manages to escape but he's badly damaged. Thankfully, a quick medical attention saves his life.
One of the first scenes in the movie is a fight scene between Johnson and a group of men who are trying to rob a drug dealer. While the rest of the crew is watching, Johnson runs out to take on one of the men. At the end of the scene, he comes face to face with one of the men who attempted to rob him, but he manages to escape.
Jon Bernthal plays the part of Johnson and is great in the role. His performance is both intense and believable, even if he's not the real thing. The character of Jon Bernthal is also the same man who played the killer in the movie The Punisher, so it's no surprise that he's playing a role like that in a movie like Black is King.
Jon Bernthal's appearance in the movie is a big step forward in terms of popularity for the actor, so if he can do a role like that, he's bound to have more success in the near future. It will be interesting to see how Black is King develops into a movie like The Punisher and how Jon Bernthal fares. As the years go on, we'll find out whether there's a chance that both characters will meet in the movies.
