Well sh*t… Scott Adkins just had to go and step it up a notch with this very Brutal, very British, hugely funny and fairly orginal Brit crime drama. Boasting a superb leading man performance from Adkins and a delightful supporting cast of top Brit talent.

So I saw the trailer, then I read the synopsis, I looked into the cast list and instanly thought ‘Well I know how this is going to go’. However I do love a lot of the cast involved in the flick and I am known to enjoy a good Brit crime thriller. Add to this Adkins has never failed to deliver when it comes to punch-y,

‘Avengement’ Premiere Interviews With The Cast & Crew

Dazzler Media

As one of the greatest action heroes to emerge from the modern age of cinema, Scott Adkins is always a delight to behold on screen. His latest film, Avengement, is a fantastic demonstration of all the traits that make him unique in an increasingly overpopulated industry. In recent years Hollywood has transformed into a playground for computer generated characters, and faceless protagonists. Indeed, the days of admiring action stars who were completely capable of kicking ass in real life are quickly disappearing.

Thankfully, this is a good old-fashioned martial arts movie, with the added twist of being a dark, gritty, British crime thriller. Containing some fantastic performances, a break-kneck pace, and bone-crunchingly violent fight sequences, Avengement is unique, experimental, action cinema at its finest. Thn was fortunate enough to speak to Scott and writer Stu Small, as well as the films stunt team, at the world premiere held in London last month.

Exclusive Interview – Avengement star Scott Adkins and writer Stu Small

To celebrate the release of the acclaimed, violent and action-packed thriller Avengement, we caught up with leading man Scott Adkins and writer Stu Small at the UK Premiere to discuss the film.

In Avengement, while granted leave from prison, Cain Burgess (Adkins) evades his guards and returns to old haunts to take revenge on the people that made him a cold hearted killer. It’s an epic, bloody battle to search for the soul he lost years ago on the streets of an unforgiving city. Avengement is an impressive, fight-filled dramatic story with an all-time best performance from Adkins…

You’ve worked together before on films like Accident Man and The Debt Collector, so how was this particular idea conceived?

Movie Review – Avengement (2019)

Avengement, 2019.

Directed by Jesse V. Johnson.

Starring Scott Adkins, Craig Fairbrass, Thomas Turgoose, Nick Moran, Louis Mandylor, Terence Maynard, and Kierston Wareing.

Synopsis:

An escaped convict seeks revenge on the people that put him in prison, including his own brother.

One look at the blurb for Avengement tells you pretty much all you need to know about what you are going to get for 87 minutes – Scott Adkins (fighting), Craig Fairbrass and Nick Moran (geezers), the London setting (more geezers) and a revenge-driven plot (nothing new there). However, Scott Adkins and director Jesse V. Johnson have forged something of a successful creative partnership over the past few years and that partnership has gathered some momentum, resulting in Avengement being a bit slicker and more inventive than the average Mockney gangster crime movie.

Adkins plays Cain Burgess, a highly dangerous prisoner let out for a few hours with armed guards to visit

Interview: Scott Adkins For Upcoming Actioner ‘Avengement’

Scott Adkins is a man of many talents. The former Birmingham-born star has come a very long way from his humble roots in the midlands. After beginning his career as a stuntman in a series of martial arts movies in the early 2000’s, Adkins has steadily progressed to acting roles in some of the biggest franchises in the world.

Dazzler Media

From Jackie Chan’s Medallion, to The Bourne Ultimatum and The Expendables 2, Adkins has followed in the footsteps of iconic action heroes across multiple generations. As a man experienced in over 6 different types of martial arts, it’s certainly not difficult to see why Hollywood has taken notice of his action credentials. After recently appearing as a foil to Benedict Cumberbatch in Doctor Strange, and then starring in his own comic adaptation as Accident Man, Adkins returns for Avengement.

Avengement tells the gritty and bloodthirsty story of a violent criminal released from prison,
