The Assassination Games Begin

1 Comment

Here’s your first look at the trailer for Ernie Barbarash’s “Assassination Games”, formerly “Weapon” (a better title, in my opinion), starring Scott Adkins and Jean-Claude Van Damme. Not sure why the sound is all “echo-y”, but eh, movie looks cool. Definitely B-grade material, but then again, you probably expected that. Not sure how much of a theatrical release it’s going to get, if any in the States, but they’re promising a July release date. Via IGN.

Rival assassins — each of whom are masters of their respective weapons — form an uneasy alliance in their mission to take down a DEA-backed drug cartel.

Starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, Scott Adkins and Kevin Chapman and directed by Ernie Barbarash, who will be re-teaming with Van Damme again in “Six Bullets” soon, before moving on to “The Package” with Dolph Lundgren and Steve “Stone Cold” Austin. Dude’s definitely cornering the market on B-movie action stars.

    the line between B and A grade action seems so thin. I think a good director can easily cross that line with a little bit more effort. Stage the fights better. A bit more post work.
