The dynamic duo that brought us the ‘Undisputed’ and ‘Ninja’ franchise is teaming up once again for the action thriller SEIZED.
Directed by ISAAC FLORENTINE (Ninja: Shadow Of A Tear) and starring SCOTT ADKINS (Ip Man 4), the film follows “a former special forces agent’s son who is kidnapped and buried inside a casket in the desert. If he wants to see his son alive again, then he must complete three missions in under 5.5 hours before his son runs out of oxygen. His missions are to wipe out three dangerous international mobs.”
Sounds like a recipe for martial arts action mayhem.
