Hey Hollywood! Give Us Sinners & Saints 2

Sinners & Saints is one of my favourite action movies from the past few years; an independent film which still managed to look glossy with a first rate cast and excellent action scenes.

It really was everything a genre fan could want so as soon as the end credits started rolling I wanted to see where our hero Sean Riley (Johnny Strong) would go next as a character.

I liked how he wasn’t an invincible hero but was vulnerable and trying to get over the loss of his son.

He had experienced every parent’s worst nightmare which immediately makes you root for him.

 

His anger at God and life in general for putting him through this makes him a more brutal cop but that’s what makes the action so hardcore. He doesn’t mess around and the scene where he tells a criminal to look at him before shooting him repeatedly is tough but sets the tone that this isn’t someone you want to mess with.

The supporting cast includes Tom Berenger, Method Man, Jürgen Prochnow, Kim Coates, Sean Patrick Flanery, Costas and Louis Mandylor and Kevin Phillips to name but a few.

It has a Michael Mann type vibe with plenty of style and brutal violence thrown in for good measure.

Throughout the movie Sean sits outside the cemetery where his son is buried as he can never bring himself to visit his grave. By the end though he makes the decision to take that step forward. So what happens next? Well, that’s what we all want to find out. Riley’s story isn’t over and the sequel is apparently ready to go.

It’s currently titled Sinners and Saints: Vengeance and you can see the teaser poster below.

Director William Kaufman returns with a script from Chad Law and Jay Moses.

There is also a statement on the movie’s Facebook Page as follows: “If you want this sequel to be a reality, you can help by showing the powers that be how much. Please go and like the page for the original and tell everyone you know to do so as well. If you’ve already given the page a Like, thank you, we can’t wait to give it to you. Sean Riley is just getting started…”

So it looks like it’s up to the studio bods to get the film financed and distributed so Come on Hollywood! Someone finance this movie so we can have the action movie we all deserve.

We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
