Scott Adkins vs Michael Jai White *and* Ray Park? Yes please.
Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Michelle Yeoh, Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, Nana Seino… what do these people all have in common? That’s right, they’re action stars who earn that label by showing off their fighting chops and kicking lots of onscreen ass. Skilled fighters make for the best action performers for obvious reasons, and one of the best of the current crop continues to be Scott Adkins.
He’s made recent strides into big-budget fare like Doctor Strange, Zero Dark Thirty, and American Assassin, but his greatest strengths are typically reserved for smaller, grittier action movies. They don’t get the same wide releases, but the best ones — Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning, Eliminators, Ninja: Shadow of a Tear, and others — are well-worth seeking out on VOD and Blu-ray/DVD.
Adkins’ latest, Accident Man, belongs in this same grouping as it’s an action-filled romp delivering both laughs and plenty of fast-moving, smartly-choreographed fight scenes. The movie’s coming to home video tomorrow (2/6), but today we’re offering up a brief tease with a fight scene clip featuring Adkins taking on both Michael Jai White and Ray Park.
Check out the fight clip below.
It’s a solid fight, and it’s only the first of two as Adkins meets the pair one more time later in the movie with far more definitive results. Both are great fun, but they’re just a small sampling of the action here as Adkins brawls with several others — including a stellar face-off with Amy Johnston. Action fans will definitely want to give this one a spin.
The official synopsis is as follows:
“Mike Fallon, the Accident Man, is a stone cold killer whose methodical hits baffle the police and delight his clients. He is the best at what he does. But when a loved one is dragged into the London underworld and murdered by his own crew, Fallon is forced to rip apart the life he knew in order to hold those accountable and avenge the one person who actually meant something to him.”
Accident Man hits VOD and Blu-ray/DVD on February 6th.
