The Tax Collector (2020, D: Ayer) -- S: Bobby Soto, Shia LaBeouf







In Theaters, VOD and Digital HD August 7th Written and Directed by David Ayer Starring Bobby Soto, Cinthya Carmona, George Lopez and Shia LeBeouf Synopsis: David (Bobby Soto) and Creeper (Shia LaBeouf), are “tax collectors” for the crime lord Wizard, collecting his cut from the profits of local gangs’ illicit dealings. But when Wizard’s old rival returns to Los Angeles from Mexico, the business is upended, and David finds himself desperate to protect what matters more to him than anything else: his family.




David Ayer has been promoting this on social media and it had a big premiere at a Drive-In theatre in LA last night.

This looks pretty badass and Shia playing a badass looks interesting. I may have to rent this August 7th.

Supposedly, Shia got a real tattoo covering his entire chest for this.

That sounds very unnecessary.

This entire movie sounds very unnecessary.

Looks good!

A friend saw this already and says it's Ayer's best film since Fury.

^ In fact, I did. The morons that brought it down to 17% are still sore that Shia is playing a "brown face," character which he is not, but in this political climate - you can't tell these people shit. I bought the Digital 4K on iTunes and knocked it out this morning. I also watched Ayer's Street Kings. Hey, I'm an Ayer fan, so it's a given.

I'll need to check this out. Shia looks more Mexican than me. Perfectly fine with that.

Shia’s cauliflower ears are a nice touch for his character too.

Shia is not playing a Latino character at all, though. Pacino's character in Scarface was Cuban. There is a distinction.

Judging by the amount of screen time Shia's chest tattoo got, seemed very very unnecessary.

I thought the same thing. You would have thought with the press it got it would be a major plot point. Turns out, this is not even his movie as he’s not the lead and I can’t remember a scene where the tattoo was discussed or shown.
