The action team of director Jesse V. Johnson and Dominiquie Vandenberg have delivered once again with their newest action offering The Mercenary which has Vandenberg front and center in another tale of Redemption amidst a hail of bullets, blood, fist and feet. The film will be released in less than two weeks on DVD and Digital on January 7th and we have a brand new and updated DVD cover for you which shows off some of the film’s many pulse pounding action sequences!

Action superstar Dominiquie Vandenberg and acclaimed filmmaker Jesse V.Johnson, director of Triple Threatand Accident Man, team for 2020’s most explosive action blockbuster – The Mercenary.

On DVD and Digital January 7 from Uncork’d Entertainment, The Mercenary also stars Louis Mandylor (Rambo : Last Blood) and Carmen Argenziano (“CSI : NY”).

Maxx (Vandenberg, Triple Threat, Gangs of New York) is a legionnaire turned mercenary. When a mission in South America goes wrong Maxx is left for dead, but he is nursed back to health and reborn with a new outlook on life. He tries to live tranquilly within the confines of his new beliefs surrounded by his new friends at a church. But his peaceful days are short-lived when mercenaries he used to work with cross his path again and he is forced to revisit and face his own demons. His brutal past, war and violence have come looking for him again. His path to redemption is interrupted and Maxx becomes an avenging warrior using the skills that were his trade.

Johnson directs from a script by David Filmore.

I have seen the film and I can tel you that is is another heavy dose of brutal and unforgiving action cinema with Vandenberg and co-star Louis Mandylor (The Debt Collector) in fine form and the bodies certainly hit the floor with this one and it is a great 80’s action throwback film with a sensational soundtrack to boot. I will be serving up my review shortly as I will paratke in another viewing of the film to firmly touch base on my views about it but it delivers the action goods people!

I also had the honor of talking to star Dominiquie Vandenberg over the phone for the movie and will be posting my official and exclusive interview with him when the film hits the shelves!

In the meantime, watch the bloody and brutal Red Band Trailer for the film below!
