White Elephant Review: Action and Heart in One of Bruce Willis' Final Films

White Elephant is, at first, a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. When two police officers inadvertently witness an assassination ordered by Arnold Soloman (a crime boss played by Bruce Willis), they soon find themselves as Arnold's next targets. Wanting zero witnesses, Arnold commands his enforcer Gabriel Tancredi (Michael Rooker) to take them out, and Gabriel brings along his soon-to-be-replacement Carlo Garcia (Vadhir Derbez) to finish the job. It's a familiar set-up of many pulp action movies where law enforcement is up against organized crime. While White Elephant certainly isn't without its pulpy action — from headshots to blood splattering on our heroes' faces — what allows Jesse V. Johnson's film to rise above is its beating heart.
