After starring in James Bond films, Pierce Brosnan is back in action with the extremely talented Emma Thompson in the latest romantic comedy caper “The Love Punch.” In the movie, Brosnan and Thompson play a divorced couple whose pension is stolen by an unscrupulous businessman, reunite to steal it back. Setting aside their differences, they undertake a high-stakes heist spanning scenic settings in London, Paris and the French Riviera along with acclaimed actors Timothy Spall, Marisa Berenson and Tuppence Middleton.
At the heels of classic rom-coms like “A Fish Called Wanda” and “Romancing The Stone,” director Joel Hopkins buoys up the romantic heist genre in “The Love Punch” where Brosnan’s and Thompson’s characters Richard and Kate find out that their retirement funds have been wiped out entirely. Tracking the culprit that robbed them off their funds that led them to a multi-million dollar diamond purchase and an over-the-top wedding, they find themselves in their grandest escapade caught up in a cat-and-mouse caper across Europe in a whirlwind of intrigue, mad chases and a jewelry theft that might restore Richard's future — while rekindling his romance with Kate.
“The Love Punch” will open April 19 in cinemas from Axinite Digicinema, Inc. Check out the movie’s official Phils.
