Setup (2011) is the first film to star both Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson and Bruce Willis, with Fire with Fire (2012) being the second and The Prince (2014) being the third. While they share scenes together in this film, they do not share scenes together in Fire with Fire or The Prince. See more »
The whole movie looks to take place the middle of winter, not spring or fall. Yet when mob boss Biggs is talking to Tony (not credited) while they are drowning the Russian, they talked about the game and balls and strikes. While it can get cold at the beginning of baseball season and the end, the movie was obviously set in dead winter, when no baseball is being played. See more »
When I was younger I wanted to be a priest. I was going into the battle to save men's souls from the evil of the world. But as I got older, I saw the world for what it really was. It wasn't so much who I was going to save, but what was going to save the world from me.

Seeing it had a good cast I thought this could be a good film, wrong! It's just a over hyped B grader by using a few big name actors, sure Ryan Phillippe is in it here and there but Bruce Willis is in it only for the name, as he is in this film for around 20 minutes, Bruce is only in it to prop up this film. 50 cents is just not credible as an actor, and Bruce and Ryan can't help him raise the bar past the level of B grade.
The story is nothing new, it's predictable and plain boring, and that music score! they are really trying to make this sound like a serious crime drama, but they failed, it just proves again it takes more then well know actors to make a good film.
Would I recommend this film? yeah sure if I did not like you! give it a miss, walk your dog instead, wash your car, ring your mum! as this film is not worth wasting your time on.
Solid 1 out of 10, it would have been a zero but I did love that GTO, the main high light of the film.
