I absolutely love his Ninja films & his Debt Collector films & many more, he's genuinely a good actor & an incredible fighter on screen & has a Cool charm.
Here in this Very violent & gritty British Thriller our Adkins plays Cain, a guy who is down on his luck & gets mixed up with his older Gangsta brother that gets him put in the toughest prison in England & here he becomes a warrior as he is hunted every day by other Criminals who want him dead & we get some outstanding fight scenes that are truly savage & extremely brutal & Adkins is superb as he becomes a hardened warrior.
This is a revenge Thriller & once Cain escapes his prison life he sets out on a violent quest of revenge against the one's who set him up & put a price on his head in prison, his own big brother!!! Adkins basically becomes The Punisher & it's Awesome!!! Adkins really gives it his all here with his extraordinary performance & shows he's as good as any of the other big British actors such as Tom Hardy & Jason Statham. The fights are Amazing to watch & full of blood splatter & broken bones, Adkins is a killing machine here but it's his situation that made him that way & we root for him to kill them all. This has some of the greatest fight sequences I've seen in a long time & especially for a DTV film, they're Amazing.
Scott Adkins makes quality films & puts his everything into them so it doesn't matter at all that alot of his films are "Cheap" low-budget flicks because he makes better stuff more often than what's at the cinema with mega-budgets!!!
I so wish someone would cast him in a new Punisher movie as he's perfect.
Avengement is a quality revenge Thriller that's full of violent action & some very funny humour scattered throughout & a great performance from the underrated Adkins.
The greatest Bar Fight ever is featured in this kick-ass brutal Action crime drama.
