Triple Threat (2019, dir. Jesse V Johnson)

Mercenaries accidentally free a terrorist. This gleeful team-up of multiple DTV action stars doesn’t quite hang together in story terms, but there’s no doubting the fun to be had if shootouts, martial arts combat and fistfights are your thing.

Incoming (2018, dir. Eric Zaragoza)

Escaped terrorists take over the ISS, now a CIA black site. High-concept low-budget prison escape movie with an SF twist. Unfortunately, despite Adkins’ professionalism and some ambition, this is a tatty effort that doesn’t even deliver in its fight sequences.

Nightshooters (2018, dir. Marc Price)

A low-budget film crew is trapped in a high-rise – due for demolition – by gangsters. Impressive micro-budget action comedy with some great gags, fine stuntwork and fight choreography. Lots to enjoy for genre fans; the film’s limitations work to its advantage.

Deadpool 2 (2018, dir. David Leitch)

After the death of his girlfriend, Deadpool finds redemption in protecting a young mutant. Confident sequel with the same approach as before, mixing cartoony violence, baroque language and metatextual gags.

Safe (2012, dir. Boaz Yakin)

A hunted ex-cop and a young girl with mob secrets go on the run together. Terrific New York chase thriller, balancing stunts, action and rock-solid fight choreography together to make a daft but supremely entertaining package. For genre fans, but highly recommended nevertheless.
