The careers of Bruce Willis and John Cusack, waning pendulums that escape from their straight-to-video lows a little less with each swing, have made their inevitable collision into a Jason Patric vehicle in The Prince.

As was previously described with some confusion, the film is an experiment to see whether Patric can be plugged into Taken as readily as hair is plugged into his skull. Our Speed 2 cruise controller plays a former mob enforcer with a very familiar set of skills (firearms training, hand-to-hand combat, talking to his faraway daughter on the phone, etc). Bruce Willis has got some kind of lasting grudge against him, so he kidnaps Patric's beautiful young daughter, and you know the drill from there.

Cusack co-stars as Patric's old friend and, as is only natural for this kind of thing, 50 Cent makes this his third unlikely collaboration with Willis. Korean pop star Rain's lithe form narrowly covers the hole where you expect to see Robert De Niro. Here's the trailer:
