Scott Adkins Vs. Mario Van Peebles

Lionsgate Pictures has released a trailer for 80s-throwback action movie Seized, starring Scott Adkins and Mario Van Peebles.

MMA action star Adkins plays a former Special Forces agent whose son is kidnapped and must now wipe out three dangerous crime syndicates if he wants to see him alive again.

Here’s the trailer –

The official synopsis for Seized reads –

“Hiding out with his son Taylor on the Mexican coast, Nero (Scott Adkins, Doctor Strange) hopes to put his violent Special Forces career behind him. But after Nero’s home is attacked and Taylor is abducted, the mysterious Mzamo (Mario Van Peebles, Heartbreak Ridge) orders Nero to slaughter the members of three rival crime syndicates. If he fails, Taylor will die. Now, with bullets flying and bodies dropping as Nero completes his mission, he races to find Mzamo’s hideout and seek revenge.”

Adkins has been churning out 80s-style action movies for a while now, with roles in the Undisputed franchise, the Ninja series, as well as The Debt Collector, Accident Man, and Triple Threat.

Adkins is up against fellow B-movie actor Mario Van Peebles, whose previous movies include the likes of Baadasssss!, Armed, Exterminator 2, and Jaws: The Revenge.

Seized will be released on Digital platforms on October 13th.
