I heard about this movie on Dread Central a year ago, don't know why it took so long to finally get released. But whatever the reason I'm glad it came out. In a world where every action film either costs hundreds of millions of dollars or is intentionally made cheesy this film stands out.
Ray Park (Darth Maul, Snake Eyes) plays Max, a mercenary who is literally soulless. He finds himself over his head when he takes a job to exterminate a gang that turns out to be possessed by a 'legion' of demons. And ends up getting some unlikely help from a ninja assassin and an immortal Knight Templar.
If that sounds like a comic book it is because it almost literally is. The film was written, directed, and edited in a very stylish comic book way. It clips along at a fast pace without a dull moment, even when there's no action- which is not surprisingly good considering the film makers are all former stunt men- it is interesting.
The story is good, the dialog is good and the camera work looks like something out of a much bigger film.
It seems like it is set up for a sequel and I hope they're already making it.
