Synopsis[edit]

As the film begins, Ryan has spent years putting his brutal past behind him—a different man now to the stone cold killer he was a lifetime ago. But when an old face from the past arrives on his doorstep, Ryan is called upon to repay a blood debt from years ago. But the price is too high. Betrayed, and with his life falling apart around him, Ryan goes on a murderous, bloody revenge spree against the Ten Men who took his life away from him.

Production[edit]

It took 18 months from production starting to finishing filming. The film's action was handled by Hong Kong fight director/stunt man Jude Poyer who has worked alongside actors such as Jet Li and Jean-Claude Van Damme on a host of US and Asian action films.

The film stars actor/martial artist Brendan Carr, Terry Stone, Pooja Shah, Ben Shockley, Lee Latchford-Evans, JC Mac, Tom Gerald, and Phil Hobden. Doug Bradley provides the film's voiceover narration.

The film also features cameos from actor/musician/entertainer Chico, MMA fighter Kimo, Dave Legeno, Cage Rage promoter Dave O'Donnell, Silvio Simac, Cecily Fay and Glenn Salvage.
