When the teenage son (Rudhraksh Jaiswal) of a powerful gangster is kidnapped, a mercenary (Chris Hemsworth) is hired to find him. This adaptation of the graphic novel moves the story from South America to India and Bangladesh, using that flavor to great effect as we follow Hemsworth’s elite soldier fight, shoot and stab his way through a never-ending array of thugs and troops who are out to get him and the boy. Very simple story (not to mention the psychology of it), but packed with explosive action, as should be expected from former stunt coordinator Sam Hargrave.
