OK, this is getting a little ridiculous now. Once again, a movie, from Spain no less, has managed to fly right under my radar. I was literally browsing my list of flicks on Netflix when I came across one awesome and spectacular looking action-thriller titled XTREME. Literally. I was simply browsing and up popped up this movie that looks deliciously violent with balletic shoot outs, fisticuffs and swordplay.
The film’s plot pits a retired hit man up against his sadistic, criminal stepbrother when the latter kills his dad and only son. That would probably make the holidays a little weird but I digress. It gives us fans an excuse to watch the bloodletting that follows when Garcia’s grizzled hit man takes on his step kin and his legions of goons.
Don’t take my word for it. Check out the official trailer below and you can bet I’ll be checking this one out this weekend.
I know, I know, here’s yet another action spectacle that takes its cues from one unknown movie named John Wick but with that, it still looks solid. Starring is martial arts maestro Teo García as well as Óscar Jaenada, Óscar Casas, and Andrea Duro with Daniel Benmayor handling the directing duties.
This one is now streaming on Netflix and unfortunately it comes in a dubbed version but from the sound of the trailer, it looks like it won’t be bad although the above peek is in its native Spanish. The action certainly looks like it will make up for it with Garcia looking bad ass in the multiple action sequences that screams something that 87Eleven Action Design might put out.
Extreme is now available on Netflix so check it out now!
