Fsff 2018: ‘Vengeance’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Stu Bennett, Gary Daniels, Keith Allen, Sean Blowers, Anna Shaffer, Bryan Larkin, Sapphire Elia, Kevin Leslie, James Fisher, Mark Griffin, Orion Lee, Wayne Gordon, Fleur Keith, Alan Calton | Written and Directed by Ross Boyask

When ex-soldier turned mercenary, John Gold (Bennett), learns of the murder of his best friend, he sets off on a mission to find out what happened. What he discovers is a sinister conspiracy and he sets about taking down those responsible one by one.

Since parting ways with the WWE, former superstar Stu Bennett (aka Wade Barrett) has turned his hand to a career as a movie hard man. First as the villain in the fantastic Scott Adkins movie Eliminators and now here in Vengeance – where he takes on a more heroic role. Well I say hero, but it’s more in the sense of a vengeful, single-minded anti-hero in the grand revenge-seeking tradition of Charles Bronson.

DVD Review – Fanged Up (2018)

Fanged Up, 2018.

Directed by Christian James.

Starring Daniel O’Reilly, Danielle Harold, Stu Bennett, Steven Berkoff, Vas Blackwood, Lauren Socha, Terry Stone, and Ewen MacIntosh.

Synopsis:

A young man is thrown in the cells for the weekend after a brawl, unaware that the guards are bloodsucking vampires.

Nothing says British horror quite like a vampire movie and nothing is quite as difficult to get right as a horror comedy, seeing as there two genres you have to play to. Fanged Up is director Christian James’ follow-up to his 2013 popular zombie comedy Stalled and, like that movie, Fanged Up doesn’t want to reinvent the genre but just have a good time with it.

The tone is set straight away with roguish Jimmy Ragsdale (comedian Daniel O’Reilly) attempting to chat up a couple of women in a nightclub by telling them he is the owner. Unfortunately, the real owner – played

Official Trailer for Action Film 'I Am Vengeance' Starring Stu Bennett

"You best stop shooting your mouth off, now – or you're a dead man!" Saban Films + Lionsgate have just released an official trailer for another one of these low budget, super cheesy, totally awful-looking action films. This one is titled I Am Vengeance, a variation on the original Vengeance title for UK release. I Am Vengeance stars former WWE wrestler Stu Bennett (who wrestled under the name Wade "King" Barrett) as an ex-Special Forces soldier turned professional mercenary, who goes to a small town to investigate the murder of a friend and his parents. The film's cast includes Keith Allen, Gary Daniels, Anna Shaffer, Bryan Larkin, Sean Blowers, Sapphire Elia, Mark Griffin, and Wayne Gordon.

Ranking All 17 Money in the Bank Cash-Ins From Worst to Best

Liam Hoofe takes a look at all 17 previous Money in the Bank cash-ins and ranks them from worst to best…

This Sunday night the WWE will crown their 18th Mr. Money in the Bank. Since the debut of the Money in the Bank ladder match at WrestleMania 21, the bout has given us 17 victors, 15 of which have gone on to win world titles- a good omen for whoever walks away the winner this Sunday night.

Ever since the first cash-in at New Year’s Revolution 2006, the WWE have tried to surprise fans and come up with different and innovative ways to deploy the gimmick, the majority of which have been successful.

Not all cash-ins are created equal however and some of them have not quite worked out as planned. With that in mind, let’s take a look back at each Money in the Bank cash in and rank them,
