The fist poster and trailer have arrived online for Savage Dog, the new film from Jesse V. Johnson (Green Street Hooligans 2, The Package), which sees British martial arts star Scott Adkins (Doctor Strange) leading a cast that includes Marko Zaror (Undisputed 3: Redemption), Cung Le (The Grandmaster), Juju Chan (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny), Vladimir Kulich (The Equalizer) and Keith David (The Thing).

Indochina – 1959. A lawless town controlled by the criminal class: Vietnamese warlords and European war criminals. Den-Dhin-Chan Labor Camp is run by four such dangerous men. The worst prison in the land, it is here that a European, former-champion boxer Martin Tillman (Scott Adkins, Marvel’s “Doctor Strange”) has made a name for himself fighting tournaments, on which wealthy criminals gamble in high stakes events. When Tillman is due for release,

Fantastic Fest 2016 Review: Boyka: Undisputed Brings the Pain, In and Outside the Ring

Scott Adkins brings redeemed Russian Mma fighter Yuri Boyka back to the screen for the third time, delivering another helping of blistering bloody bouts of carefully choreographed carnage. Outside the ring, director Todor Chapkanov fails to complement the action with a solid narrative or naturalistic dialogue, but fans of the Undisputed series won’t care one bit. For the late-night action crowd, Boyka: Undisputed is a knockout. Picking up some years after the events in Undisputed III: Redemption, we catch up with the world’s most complete fighter in Kiev, still honing his trade for cash on the underground fight circuit. Boyka (Adkins) has found religion, donating all of his winnings to a local church, but the demons of his past sins continue to haunt him....

9 great modern B-movie directors

Tim George Jul 14, 2016

They might not be at the level of John Carpenter or Wes Craven yet, but meet the directors who are keeping the B-movie flag flying...

B-Movies. Exploitation flicks. Genre cinema. Someone has to make them, and here is a list compiling the best of the today’s crop of filmmakers who are unabashed in their love of genres, and have honed their talents producing enjoyable and sometimes great B-Movies. While all the movies they make may not be great, do not dismiss them. The seeds of great things are contained in their filmographies, and it would come as no surprise if one or two of these guys are able to attain the same heights as luminaries like Hill, Carpenter, Craven and Corman.

One of the most consistent directors of mid level Hollywood genre fare, Collet-Serra has quietly turned into a solid genre filmmaker without too

Exclusive: Scott Adkins administers a beatdown in this clip from Close Range

  • JoBlo
If you've never heard of Scott Adkins before, that's a shame, because the man definitely knows how to kick some ass. Although much of his filmography consists of direct-to-video fare, it'd be a mistake to write them off as films like Undisputed III: Redemption, Universal Soldier: Day Of Reckoning, and Ninja 2: Shadow Of A Tear offer some of the best most hard hitting...

Movie Review – Close Range (2015)

Close Range, 2015.

Directed by Isaac Florentine.

Starring Scott Adkins, Nick Chinlund, Caitlin Keats, Jake La Botz, Tony Perez and Madison Lawlor.

Synopsis:

A rogue soldier turned outlaw is thrust into a relentless fight with a corrupt sheriff, his obedient deputies, and a dangerous drug cartel in order to protect his sister and her young daughter.

The kicks and fisticuffs get started right away in director Isaac Florentine’s latest action film Close Range, starring underrated action star Scott Adkins from Florentine’s films Special Forces, The Shepherd: Border Patrol, Undisputed II, Undisputed III: Redemption, Ninja, and Ninja II: Shadow of a Tear. They’ve already shot their next film Boyka: Undisputed IV, so it’s more than obvious that these two guys are a match made in “B” movie heaven. It’s almost criminal that Adkins hasn’t been able to reach beyond his core, niche audience, and the same

In an recent meeting with Sunil Rodrigues, one of B-Town’s action directors, Scott made a reference to Vidyut and revealed that he had seen Vidyut’s film Commando and his videos online. The surprised action director took Twitter to share about Adkin’s reference to Vidyut.

Jammwal is also looking thrilled to be on Scott’s radar. He says, “It feels great to have my action scenes recognised and appreciated by an incredible international action star like Adkins. He has one of the best bodies in the business and some amazing action sequences to his credit in films like Undisputed II and Ninja (2009) among others.”

As a vigilante, he stops criminals in their tracks and gives them only one chance to ask for forgiveness. Bad guys being bad guys, they rarely listen, so Pardo disposes of them in gruesome ways.

Notebook Reviews: John Hyams' "Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning"

  • MUBI
John Hyams’s last two films—Universal Soldier: Regeneration (2009) and Dragon Eyes (2012)—were distinguished by their keen sense of action-setpiece construction and their potent use of motion and space. Regeneration, the weightier and more accomplished of the two, even achieved a sort of tragic grandeur; its images of empty-eyed soldiers fighting ceaselessly in irradiated urban ruins play like action-movie poetry.

Hyams’ new film, however, is an ambitious radical departure—a ballsy, heady genre mutant that confirms that Hyams is something more than just a smart and talented action traditionalist. Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning—slippery, chilly, queasy—grafts an art-horror movie on to the rootstock of a violent action flick. It bears only a passing resemblance to Regeneration, and has even less in common with the original Universal Soldier (1992); in fact, the two films it brings to mind are Lost Highway and Videodrome.

Held together by an atmosphere of sustained dread,

Scott Adkins Talks ‘Expendables 2,’ The New ‘Universal Soldier,’ and Getting Punched in 3D By Ufc Champs

Today, The Expendables 2 comes crashing into movie theaters across the country like a tank. With its Herculean roster of action legends, one name you might not yet recognize on the poster is that of Scott Adkins. We must stress, the “yet.” Adkins is currently fighting his way, literally, up the action cinema food chain. He appeared in such films as Ninja and The Bourne Ultimatum. He wowed many of us with his turn as vicious prisoner brawler Yuri Boyka in the Undisputed franchise. In Undisputed III: Redemption, he held his own with Mirageman himself, Marko Zaror. In addition to The Expendables 2, Adkins will again star alongside Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren in Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning, the “fourth” film in the franchise that was just announced as part of the second wave of this year’s Fantastic Fest. Not one to slow down, Adkins also stars in the action movie El Gringo, which

Assassin’s Bullet Review

Assassin’s Bullet Review
Title: Assassin’s Bullet Director: Isaac Florentine Cast: Christian Slater, Donald Sutherland, Elika Portnoy, Timothy Spall I feel bad for Christian Slater, Donald Sutherland and Timothy Spall. They must have either been manipulated into acting in Assassin’s Bullet, or straight out lied to. Those would be the only logical assumptions that can be made for why anyone would make the decision to be in this catastrophic disaster. Director Isaac Florentine, who also directed the Mma-based films, Undisputed II: Last Man Standing and Undisputed III: Redemption, now brings us a new film in his catalogue, called Assassin’s Bullet, which hits an all-time low.

Notebook Reviews: Isaac Florentine's "Assassin's Bullet"

  • MUBI
It's a pity that Assassin's Bullet, possibly the first Isaac Florentine film to receive a Stateside theatrical release, happens to be one of his weakest. A martial-artist-turned-filmmaker, Florentine (born Yitzhak Florentin) has carved out a niche in the direct-to-video world as an old-school action director with a knack for choreographing and composing fight scenes. Wide-angles lenses, longish shot durations (by contemporary standards, anyway), and a sense of follow-through are the hallmarks of Florentine's action-directing style—an appreciative aesthetic where every element serves the bodies and movements of the athlete-performers (Florentine's leads are more often than not Mma fighters, more than capable of doing their own stunts).

Originally titled Sofia (as in the city), Assassin's Bullet is a sub-De Palma riff on the Bulgarian capital's status as a popular B-movie shooting location. This identity disorder—Sofia is one of contemporary cinema's most filmed cities, yet rarely plays itself— is personified by

Donald Sutherland Asks Christian Slater to Not Shoot Him in 'Assassin's Bullet' Clip

Most won't recognize director Isaac Florentine's name, but he's one of the better straight-to-video action directors around. He's been in the business for decades, but in recent years he's really started to shine with movies like Ninja and Undisputed sequels Last Man Standing and Redemption. If you haven't seen any of them, but you respect a good kick to the face, you should definitely check them out. Undisputed III: Redemption in particular could teach Hollywood a thing or two about how to choreograph a fight scene so it looks bone-crunchingly realistic. Florentine's latest is Assassin's Bullet and it's actually getting a limited theatrical release on August 3 ahead of its home video premiere on August 14. It looks to be a bit of a break from the...

Dolph Lundgren and Scott Adkins Battle over the Tomb of the Dragon

Any movie that casts Dolph Lundgren and rising action hero Scott Adkins as rival cryptozoologists fighting over the discovery of a living, breathing killer Chinese dragon has my immediate attention.

Synopsis:

Travis, our heroic cryptozoologist, wants to prove that a prehistoric beast killing construction workers is more than just a myth. But at the same time his ruthless competitor, Harker, wants to prove he is the best in the business and outdo Travis in any way he can.\

Scott Adkins finally gets an Expendables 2 character poster

When Lionsgate released a whole batch of character posters for The Expendables 2 a couple of weeks back, one name that was noticeably absent from the line-up was that of Adkins - a.k.a. British actor and martial artist Scott Adkins, who is set to appear in the epic action ensemble as Hector, the right hand man of the film's main bad guy, Jean Vilain (Jean-Claude Van Damme). Well, fear not Adkins fans, for here it is at last:

Adkins is perhaps best known for the direct-to-video sequels Undisputed II: Last Man Standing and Undisputed III: Redemption, as well as for sharing the role of Weapon XI with Ryan Reynolds in X-Men: Origins Wolverine. He and Van Damme are no strangers, having shared the screen in The Shepherd: Border Patrol, Assassination Games and the upcoming Universal Soldier: A New Dimension (the latter of which features fellow Expendables 2 co-star Dolph Lundgren

Kevin Tancharoen’s Mortal Kombat Will Rebirth in 2013

So it looks like Kevin Tancharoen is going to get his chance to bring the fighting video game Mortal Kombat franchise back to the big screen. This is the guy who directed the Fame remake and the Glee 3D concert movie but none of those failures won him this gig. It was instead the virals that got fanboys tongues wagging last summer when he self-financed a promo trailer for what he could do if he was even given the chance to bring the world’s greatest fighting tournament back into theatres.

Titled Mortal Kombat: Rebirth, the original 8 minute viral was of surprisingly high production value and included some recognisable faces, including Michael Jai White as the character Jax, Jeri Ryan as Sonya Blade and explained in length the back-stories for Reptile, Baraka, Scorpion and a really well put together fight scene involving Johnny Cage.
