Scott Adkins in Official Trailer for Crime Action Thriller 'Avengement'
"Come on in, don't be shy." Samuel Goldwyn Films has debuted an official trailer for the indie action thriller Avengement, an intense new crime film made in the UK. This is the latest collaboration between Adkins and director Jesse V. Johnson, they also made Triple Threat together. Avengement is about a lowly criminal who is thrown in jail and made into a cold-hearted killer. While on furlough, he escapes his guards and goes for revenge on the people who set him up. The cast includes Craig Fairbrass, Thomas Turgoose, Nick Moran, Kierston Wareing, Leo Gregory, Beau Fowler, Louis Mandylor, and Terence Maynard. This looks like your standard revenge action flick mixed with prison brutality, without much more to offer.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Jesse V. Johnson's Avengement, direct from YouTube:
While released on furlough from prison, a lowly criminal (Scott Adkins) evades his guards and returns to his old haunts to take revenge on the people that made him a cold-hearted killer.
