Scott Adkins Action Double Feature!

Close Range + Savage Dog

CLOSE RANGE: After rescuing his kidnapped niece from a powerful drug cartel, Colton MacReady (Scott Adkins, Hard Target 2) begins a relentless fight to save his family. The cartel has descended upon his secluded ranch with a thirst for revenge. In tow are a corrupt local sheriff and his crew of deputies, ensuring that help won’t be coming any time soon. What ensues is a non-stop assault on the ranch, a blow-by-blow survival marathon for Colton to protect his loved ones and save his life.

SAVAGE DOG: Indochina, 1959. A Wild West town controlled by the criminal class: Vietnamese warlords and European war criminals. Den-Dhin-Chan Labor Camp is run by four such dangerous men. The worst prison in the land, it is here that a European, former-champion boxer Martin Tilman (Scott Adkins) has made a name for himself fighting tournaments, on which wealthy criminals gamble in high stakes events. When Tilman is due for release, he just wants to return home, but the corrupt forces running the jail will do everything in their power to keep him locked down. When all that Tilman holds dear is taken away in a vicious act of violence, he is forced to confront the five men responsible and take his revenge.

It’s a little disappointing that the Isaac Florentine helmed Close Range doesn’t come with any extras but we still get a few stellar featurettes for Savage Dog which was the first collaboration between Adkins and filmmaker Jesse V. Johnson. Both films are perfect examples of classic throwback adrenaline and what makes Adkins one of the most exciting action stars working in the genre today and fans will surely be excited to add this double dip into their Blu-Ray collection.

MVD will release the double feature Blu-Ray on July 20th so check back soon for pre-order info. In the meantime, check out the official trailers for both films below and get ready to watch Adkins do what he does best in glorious high definition!
