jackson's been in some movies lately and well thats fine with me i think hes good and he was good in this i liked the story even though it has been done many times before but it was still good to watch and phillippe played the jerk of the movie which he is good at and he can just keep doing those i never cared for him as a actor much anyway but he can play the bad guy pretty well and bruce willis is in this but another minor role which he as been doing lately just poping in for a little bit then going which is fine hes fun to watch and he does his parts well but randy coutures part in this movie was just a waste ive come to like him alot after his expendables roles and jeez you blink and you miss him and what a way he went out in this sad!

I did not know what this movie Setup was all about but since it had some good actors in it such as Ryan Phillipe and Bruce Willis, I wanted to give it a try. but it was a bad choice afterall. Bruce Willis did pull out a reasonable performance, but he had not much to work with, due to a poor and thin script. I guess same for difficulties could be applied for Ryan Phillippe, however, since he had a larger part it was difficult to see that his performance was that bad but still it was a complete letdown.Now for 50 cent Curtis Jackson, WTF was wrong with him? Did he really want to be an actor? Well, he will have to keep wanting, because he had not pulled anything out in this movie either. His performance was lousy,empty and he really did not bring any soul to his character. I really hope he will get better or he will die trying.This movie lacked of everything,including very bad acting and an unrealistic plot. Basically, you could not help wondering why everything happended this way because most of the scenes in the movie make no sense at all. Trash.
