This is a strange mystery come thriller movie with some funny sides to the story and maybe more suitable for the older teenager or young adult audience. Although there are many young-at-heart adults who would embrace Die in A Gunfight.  It is embedded with action cartoon captions, some violence and swearing throughout, as at the end. 

The Story

Set and filmed in Toronto, Canada this edgy action movie Die in a Gunfight is about Mary (Alexandra Daddario) and Ben (Diego Boneta), old flames who by chance cross paths.

Born to mobster type parents, they become star crossed lovers whose families have been engaged in centuries long feud, so their love is forbidden and hidden, unable to be open about their relationship. Neither family would ever approve of it, they seem doomed from the beginning. 

In today’s world their relationship would be more aligned to being ill-fated. Unlike William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet story where star-crossed lovers were aligned with their stars controlling human destiny. 

It is about dangerous powerful families, a best friend who has a debt to pay, a protector come stalker, a hitman with questionable and broad code of ethics all triggering fights with flying bullets

Diego Andrés González Boneta career began when he was 12. He is also a Mexican singer and actor, father Mexican and mother American.

His television credits include the FOX horror-comedy series Scream Queens, alongside Emma Roberts, as well as the CW’s 90210, MTV’s Underemployed and ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars.

It would be remiss of me not to mention our own Australian actor Travis Fimmel, from Echuca, Victoria who plays the part as an Aussie hitman. Although he has appeared in a number of movies and TV shows, most of us will know him as Ragnar Lothbrok from televisions series Vikings.
