Apparently Steven Seagal has a new movie out this week, a little ditty entitled “Born to Raise Hell”. Unfortunately for those of us who live in North American, the film in question is nowhere to be found. The rest of the world — particularly those who live in the UK — were treated to the movie’s endless entertainment options on October 18th. When will America be allowed to behold the glory that is “Born to Raise Hell”, you ask? Well, to be perfectly honest, I’m not entirely sure. According to a few blogs and a handful of form posts, the film was scheduled for release on October 19th, but as you can tell, it is currently missing in action. Curses! I need my fix!
For those who are jonesing for it, here’s the synopsis:
Samuel Axel (Steven Seagal) is a tough as nails Interpol Agent assigned to a task force in Eastern Europe. His target is those that traffic guns and dope throughout the Balkans. When an investigation puts him on the trail of a Russian gun dealer he learns how deadly life in Eastern Europe can truly be. Axel and his team are witness to a bloody street war between a Gypsy gang and the Russians. And when the investigation turns fatal for one of his team members, Axel becomes consumed with the need for vengeance.
And while I’m sure that someone will eventually release “Born to Raise Hell” here in the States, it doesn’t take away from the fact that I’ll just have to wait patiently for it to arrive. Insert audible sigh here. The trailer for this potentially outstanding achievement in action filmmaking rests below. Enjoy!
