QME co-founder Kevin DeWalt of Minds Eye Entertainment says, “We are ecstatic at how the film has come together and elated to bring it to U.S. audiences this May. In a rousing time for female leads, Gina Carano delivers a nuanced performance. Doing the bulk of her own stunt work, she created a character who exudes both physical and mental strength. It was also a thrill to work with the incredible film icon Richard Dreyfuss who played our villain so magnificently.”
VMI Worldwide President Andre Relis added “We’re delighted to present the film for buyers during the market and highlight the incredible action sequences and the compelling fight Clair (Carano), embarks on to save her son.”
