Critics react to the latest movie featuring Bruce Willis after the actor was diagnosed with incarceration and announced his retirement

Bruce Willis The Castle 2 Movie Wake 4.29.22

The new movie “Fortress: Sniper’s Eye” is a sequel to the action movie released last year. It’s the latest release for actor Bruce Willis, and it comes after his family announced his retirement from acting due to deteriorating cognitive health. The condition in which Willis was diagnosed is known as aphasia. The Los Angeles Times published in-depth report About Willis’s cognitive status on sets for the past two years, which paints a disturbing picture of the actor’s time on recent sets. FilmWeek critic Wade Major talks with Larry about the latest release.

We talked about announcing Willis’ retirement due to his deteriorating cognitive health on AirTalk. During that conversation, Larry spoke with an expert about aphasia and how families can learn about symptoms and a possible response. You can listen to the clip here.

Among the attendees was John Horn of the Kuwait Petroleum Corporation. He brought us this report from the conference.
