Martial arts star Scott Adkins plays a widowed US federal agent who has been living in hiding in London with his young daughter after falling foul of a ruthless arms dealer (James Cosmo). Then his cover is blown and his enemy dispatches Stu Bennett’s deadly contract killer (‘the most dangerous assassin Europe has to offer’) to eliminate him.
WWE Studios action thriller Eliminators boasts a shaky plot and terrible dialogue, but the fights – including a scrap inside one of the gondolas on the Thames cable car – are brawny enough to keep fans of the genre satisfied. Curious, too, to see British-born Adkins returning to home soil - but playing an expat American.
Certificate 15. Runtime 91 mins. Director James Nunn
Eliminators debuts on Sky Cinema Premiere on Tuesday 5 September. Released on DVD & Digital by Altitude Film Distribution.
