I had the wonderful opportunity to view the film this week well ahead of its release and will serve up my official review the week of as all reviews are embargoed until then. I will say that the film is a fun mixture of Predator and Mortal Kombat with Kickboxer’s Alain Moussi and cast delivering amazing performances with show stopping action and fight sequences. It’s also an eclectic blend of genres with action, horror, martial arts and sci-fi all merging together into one film. You’ll read more in the future so stay tuned!
Check out the trailer below again along with more pics and Mark November 20th on your calendars!
