The film is meant to be a sequel to A Good Man (2014), which was a sequel to Force Of Execution (2013), in which Steven Seagal also portrays the character of John Alexander. See more »
Nadia explains to John (Seagal) how they were captured by the boss and that her sister was killed by the boss. How would she know her sister was killed as she escaped from the room prior to her sister being killed. See more »
This starts with a man called John Alexander undergoing contemplative brooding introspection:
"I've been a bad man my whole life . If I can do only one good thing in life then that would give me absolution"
Considering John is played by Steven Seagal a more honest appraisal might be:
"I've been an abysmally bad actor my entire life . If I could only make one half decent movie then that would be absolution for the audience"
Unfortunately ABSOLUTION is not that film and seeing the physical appearance of Seagal tells us that it's never going to happen either . It's something of a shock the way Seagal looks nowadays . Try and imagine Marlon Brando in APOCALYPSE NOW with too much artificial hair and that gives you a vague idea of what happens if you're an action movie star who doesn't visit the gym very often . You do wonder how SS is going to kick some ass in his present condition . This is easily explained - he shoots bad guys and leaves any jumping and kicking to his cohort , or failing that a stunt double with his back to camera . It's not absolution that is required but lots of salad and exercise
The film starts with SS being given a mission to eliminate "This Afghan national working for the Iranians and with ties to Pakistan" It's at this very early point alarm bells start ringing that the geo-politics here might be wrong since the Persians and Pakistanis have never really been allies . That said this Afghan national isn't really the main villain , it's a character played by Vinnie Jones and when you're watching a film where Jones gives the most impressive performance that might explain why ABSOLUTION has gone straight to DVD
