Assassination Games

Jean-Claude Van Damme runs into some resistance in the form of Scott Adkins in Assassination Games.

International ass-kicker Jean-Claude Van Damme (Universal Soldier franchise) and rising star Scott Adkins (Stag Night) team up in the action thriller film Assassination Games.

In the movie, Brazil (Van Damme) is a contract killer, willing to take any job if the price is right, while Flint (Scott Adkins) left the assassin game after a drug dealer’s brutal attack left his wife in a coma.

When a contract is put out on the dealer, both Brazil and Flint want him dead – one for the money, the other for revenge. With crooked Interpol agents and members of the criminal underworld on their trail, the two assassins reluctantly join forces to take out their target before they themselves are terminated.

Directed by Ernie Barbarash (who helmed a bunch of moderately budgeted Sony action movies over the past couple of years, including Ticking Clock and Hardwired), Assassination Games received a tiny release to theaters in late July but was not generally reviewed, so we’re considering it a DVD premiere film.

The DVD includes a collection of deleted scenes as bonus features.
