Close Range (2015)

Director:

Isaac Florentine

Starring:

Scott Adkins

Nick Chinlund

Caitlin Keats

Plot:

A rogue soldier turned outlaw is thrust into a relentless fight with a corrupt sheriff, his obedient deputies, and a dangerous drug cartel in order to protect his sister and her young daughter.

Review:

This was a surprisingly well directed low budget action movie. There was not an overabundance of shaky cam or quick cuts and the story wasn’t edited to the point of confusion. I think that it helped that there wasn’t much story, but that’s an acceptable route to go with an action film.

The movie starts off immediately with Adkins kicking drug cartel butt and it rarely slows down from there. Caitlin Keats even gets in on the action and is not completely a damsel in distress needing her brother to take care of her, so I really liked that.

Every time I see Adkins in something lately I wish he got more work in bigger budget things, even his own TV show could be awesome. In fact this movie was short enough that it could be like a pilot episode pitch.

Adkins is a rogue soldier falsely accused and just wants the world to leave him alone. Too bad his particular set of skills puts him in high demand. Unable to escape Adkins takes matters into his own hands and fights for the people that can’t fight for themselves.

You know, something like that.

Anyway, if you like action movies Close Range is worth checking out.

3.5/5
