Life on the Line Feature Trailer (2016)

Feature trailer for Life on the Line starring John Travolta and Kate Bosworth.

Life on the Line is a riveting action thriller and family drama centered on Beau (John Travolta), his beloved niece Bailey (Kate Bosworth) and the hardworking men who risk their lives to work “on the line” and keep the electric grid running. These unsung heroes brave raging storms and dangerously dizzying heights in their dedication to keeping the populace safe. Toiling hundreds of feet in the air on wires carrying as much as 500,000 volts of electricity, tragedy is often inches away. Haunted by the electrocution death of his brother, Beau is devoted to Bailey and determined to see her go off to college and away from the life of linemen. Bailey has other plans, which include the strapping second-generation lineman Duncan (Devon Sawa), whom Beau despises. A deadly tempest is brewing and headed straight to their Texas town. Beau, Duncan and a legion of linemen are thrust into the eye of the storm and must face down impending disaster to keep their community connected. This compelling action drama also stars Sharon Stone, Ryan Robbins, Julie Benz and Gil Bellows.

David Hackl is mostly known for his production design work on films such as Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV, Repo! The Genetic Opera and Outlander. But Life on the Line will be Hackl's third time in the Director's chair. The other two film were Into the Grizzly Maze and Saw V.

A new report came out a couple months ago listing the most dangerous jobs in America and actually Linemen did not make the list:

Construction Worker
Corrections Officer
Emergency Medical Technician
Nursing Assistant
Police Officer
Taxi Driver
Truck Driver

Oh man, this looks to be so bad that some people will think it is so good.

John Travolta must have recently become a fan of trying out new accents. In his last film, The Forger, he goes for a Boston accent and in Killing Season he did a Russian accent. And now in Life on the Line, Travolta tries his best at what sounds like a southern accent. I do not think accents are Travolta's strong suit, but the Russian accent in Killing Season is the most over the top.

This film has a straight to video feel to it and I will be skipping it.
