One of Bruce Willis's last ever films is now available to stream on Netflix.
Midnight in the Switchgrass sees Willis take on the role of FBI agent Karl Helter, with the plot roughly based on the chilling true story of the Texas 'Truck Stop Killer'.
It also stars Megan Fox and her other half Colson Baker, aka Machine Gun Kelly.
Watch the trailer here:
The thriller was released last summer and has now arrived on Netflix, where it is trending at number three in the UK.
A synopsis of the movie reads: "Two FBI agents (Fox and Willis) cross paths with Crawford (Emile Hirsch), a Florida cop who's investigating a string of murders that appear to be related.
"When an undercover sting goes horribly wrong, Crawford soon finds himself in a twisted game of cat and mouse with the killer."
Since its initial theatrical release, Willis's family announced that he would be retiring from acting following an aphasia diagnosis.
In a post on Instagram in March, his daughter Rumer said the brain disorder was 'impacting his cognitive abilities'.
It means that Midnight in the Switchgrass is one of the last movies of his career, which burst into life in the 1980s with his portrayal of John McClane in Die Hard.
Unfortunately though, it doesn't sound like Midnight in the Switchgrass is up there with Die Hard. It has a rating of just 4.4 on IMDb and a frankly woeful score of eight percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
Upon its release, it took a panning from critics too. Writing for The Hollywood Reporter, Lovia Gyarkye said: "The movie, which bills itself as a crime-thriller-mystery, doesn’t come close to fulfilling even the lowest of expectations; it neither takes it characters seriously nor commits to its superficial attempt at topicality."
While We Got This Covered noted that the marketing for the film made it seem as though Willis features much more than he in fact does, adding that 'there isn't a shred of originality or inventiveness to be found anywhere in the DNA of Midnight in the Switchgrass'.
Still, if you're a Willis fan you may want to give it a whirl anyway, seeing as it could be one of the last times we see the 67-year-old in action – albeit sparingly.
