Cursed(?) with handsome, leading man looks, Pierce Brosnan has spent most of his career playing movie heroes, most notably in his four Bond films. But the Irish actor does have a penchant for weirder roles, as he proved in 2005’s underrated Matador and demonstrates again with the new movie, Urge (out in theaters and on demand, June 3).
The film finds Brosnan playing a mysterious nightclub owner who introduces a group of friends on a weekend getaway to a new designer drug. Stripped of their inhibitions, they start living out their wildest fantasies — but what starts out as a fun night of partying quickly turns deadly, as the island paradise deteriorates into a tropical madhouse.
