Around here, our love of action movies and the like is well documented, but our affection for dramatic thrillers set within the world of crime aren't as frequently expressed. What better opportunity to celebrate crime on film than with this artwork for Mafia, the new feature from writer-director Ryan Combs.
With Mafia, The Hit director Combs reteams with Ving Rhames, who starred in Caged Animal, King of the Avenue, and Animal 2 for the director. Rhames stars alongside Pam Grier (Foxy Brown, Coffy, Jackie Brown) and Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Gangster Squad).
Here's the official synopsis:
Ruthless crime boss Renzo Wes (Ving Rhames) rules the underworld. But when he crosses a cynical, jaded cop bent on revenge (Pam Grier) she becomes obsessed with bringing him down and is willing to break the law to do it. Her partner (Robert Patrick) is a clean cop who wants to do the right thing, but when his personal life intersects with Renzo's, loyalties are tested. The three of them are on a collision course with destiny - and no one will emerge unscathed.
And here, for your viewing pleasure, is the IAR exclusive look at the Mafia poster:
