Avengement: Scott Adkins, Louis Mandylor, Thomas Turgoose, Craig Fairbrass (2019)

Recommended Posts

Just wow...

One the best movies  Scott Adkins ever did. Non-linear story, brutal fights, a bit of gore, decent plot, acting, directing - can't really complain about anything.

Great example of how to make a good movie on a low budget. Kudos to everybody involved!

Avengement features Adkins’ best performance to date...by far. He is fantastic in this one.

As for the film itself? It’s top tier stuff. Really enjoyable. It’s a nice hybrid of British gangster film and martial arts actioner. And yes, the film is fight filled. It’s not Tim Man’s most inspired work but it’s not meant to be. The fights are scrappy and brutal. And holy shit, they’re enjoyable.

This miles better than Triple Threat. A truly enjoyable film with a razor sharp script and a solid plot. Well worth picking up.

How is everyone watching this movie? I already have it pre ordered.. but am dying to see it! 

It's available as a rental on Prime Video. That's how I watched it. Although, I've seen a lot of bootlegs out there.

I second every comment on here about the movie! Adkins in full psycho mode... Holy f***ing shit. A very raw and brutal movie. And without giving too much away, but did production draw inspiration from American History X :tongueout

Looks cracking but surely the whole "cockernee gangster" thing is wearing a bit thin now?

Everyone calling each other the c word constantly...is this how the rest of the world thinks Londoners talk?

It’s shtick. It’s the same with American “hood” movies. The vernacular is exaggerated in order to entertainment.

With that said, I don’t think Avengement is saying “This is how Londoners talk.” But it is saying, “This is how this bunch of cockney gangsters talk.” Like Snatch and Lock Stock.

UK Cinema release and Q&A with Scott Atkins 13th June 

https://www.picturehouses.com/cinema/Stratford_London/film/avengement-plus-qanda

OK. I had a ticket to see my favourite comedian Stewart Lee in London that day, but it says something about how much I love Adkins' films that I'm seriously considering seeing if anybody else wants it so I can go to this!

I picked this up this weekend and watched it tonight. Not gonna lie. I thought this movie was getting over-hyped. Whoa! This movie is freakin' banzai! Loads of action, and it is vicious. No, this isn't the typical Adkins film. There's a little bootwork, but not like we're used to seeing from him. It is the story of man wronged by his brother, sent to prison, what he has to become to survive, and his revenge. The story and action are paced very well. Overall, the movie just has a good flow and plenty of solidly brutal action. Liked better than I thought I would.

Any chance of a Mini Review for this?

Sorry, @SamSeed, but probably not this one. The action is flavored more like minor brawls with touches of MA flourishes here and there. Don't get me wrong. The fights are very solid with very good choreography throughout, and there are a lot of them, many with multiple antagonists. But I don't know that overall they warrant the typical fight breakdown I like to do. But who knows? I might rethink it after a 2nd viewing. It's just a fun, violent, fight movie to just relax and watch.

Finally caught up with Avengement this past week and echo all the praise it has been getting. Easily Jesse Johnson's best film and the best role Adkins has had in years.
