Is Avengement a word? It is in the sense that it’s the title of a new revenge thriller coming out from Dazzler Media.
Scott Adkins, who has previously appeared in Doctor Strange and something called “Accident Man,” stars as a small-time criminal who’s broken out of prison with his sights on revenge. He wants to destroy the folks who mistreated him years ago and turned him into the killing machine he is today….meaning he probably wouldn’t have the skills to go after them otherwise, but this is not a thinking man’s movie. This one’s all about fisticuffs and airborne red fluid.
In addition to Adkins, Avengement stars Craig Fairbrass (Rise of the Footsoldier), Nick Moran (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), Thomas Turgoose (This is England), Kierston Wareing (Fish Tank), Louis Mandylor (The Debt Collector). The film was directed by Jesse V. Johnson (Triple Threat, Accident Man).
Avengement is heading to digital on June 17, followed by a Blu-Ray and DVD release on July 1.
While granted leave from prison, a lowly criminal (Scott Adkins, Accident Man, Doctor Strange) evades his guards and returns to his old haunts to take revenge on the people that made him a cold hearted killer. It’s an epic, bloody battle to search for the soul he lost years ago on the streets of an unforgiving city.
