What is it with Mel Gibson and men strapped to seats with bombs? Here’s the trailer for Hot Seat.
Synopsis: Wallace Reed (Mel Gibson), veteran bomb squad officer, rushes to a city park where a bomb has just exploded creating a mass panic. In a nearby building, Orlando Friar (Kevin Dillon), a super-hacker turned IT support, receives a call. He is sitting on an explosive device, big enough to vaporize his whole office building, rigged underneath his desk chair. Standing up would trigger the bomb and the clock is ticking. Directed by a mysterious voice on the phone, Orlando is forced to hack into the millions of dollars in hedge fund accounts which he is paid to protect. Bombs are armed all around him keeping the police away, as the voice keeps the pressure, forcing him to focus. Reed is on scene and discovers the larger plot just before S.W.A.T. snipers and police, who believe Orlando is a domestic terrorist, stage a full assault on the building. With bigger explosives hidden throughout the city putting millions of people at risk, Reed and Orlando must work together to outwit the evil plan and save the day.
The film is directed by James Cullen Bressack.
