Coming Soon: Maximum Impact

The ensemble actioner has had a bit of a resurgence in recent years mostly in part to the success of The Expendables. There are several in development but I think Maximum Impact sounds like it could be a lot of fun.

With a cast that includes Kelly Hu, Danny Trejo, Mark Dacascos, Matthias Hues and Eric Roberts and direction from Andrzej Bartkowiak (Exit Wounds, Romeo Must Die) this is a project to keep an eye on.

This is not to be confused with Ultimate Justice which has several of the same cast members.

 

 

PLOT: The US State Secretary arrives on a secret summit in Moscow, in order to dissipate the tension between Russia/American relations. However, the world faces the threat of World War III when a leader of an international terrorist group organizes the assassination of the US State Secretary and kidnaps his granddaughter. Despite their differences, the CIA and FSB must unite to save humanity.

I got this synopsis from IMDB so I’m not entirely sure that it isn’t a rough translation from Russian but you get the idea of the story.

Check out a few set photos which we’ve found through Matthias Hues’ Instagram.

Who will be next……! About to engage more hard core action…! #bestoftheday #adventure #film #love #Hollywood # #AndrzejBartowiak A photo posted by Matthias Hues (@jamesbond_made_me_do_it) on

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. 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.
