Together on-screen for the first time since their Oscar-nominated performances in Pulp Fiction, John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson co-star in the gripping thriller BASIC, from acclaimed action-director John McTiernan.
Joining them is Connie Nielsen and an ensemble of some of today’s most compelling young actors including Giovanni Ribisi, Brian Van Holt, Taye Diggs, Cristián De La Fuente, Dash Mihok and Roselyn Sanchez.
Travolta stars as Tom Hardy, an ex-Army Ranger turned DEA agent, who is drawn into an ever-widening mystery surrounding the disappearance of a legendary army drill instructor Sgt. Nathan West, and several of his cadets, during a training exercise that might have resulted in murder.
With the help of the volatile Capt. Julia Osborne Hardy has to piece together the truth and with everyone telling a different story it appears that nothing is as it seems.
There are degrees of truth but the truth is far from BASIC.
