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.
A story set in Indochina in 1959, a land beyond rule and a time without mercy, and the birth of a legend....
Did You Know?
In the beginning of the movie there is a voice over (V.O.) by the narrator: There's a tale told somewhere south of Burma. It tells of one man's rendez-vous with death. A man who, when pushed far enough, retaliated. I'll be face-down an army and spill a river of blood. They say you shake their heads discounting the legend. But the fact remains ... it's all true. I knew the man, and for a while, I loved him like a son. French hightailed it in '54. And the US didn't yet have boots on the ground. For a while, Indochina offered safe-haven to men who had reached the end of the line. European war criminals, ex-Nazis and other undesirables. Or men with a price on their head in the West. Men like... Martin Tillman. See more
In the scene where Martin is first helping out as a bar back there is a table being cleared of beer bottles. One of these bottles is clearly a Lagunitas, a CA brewing company that was founded in 1993. See more
