Review: Jesse Johnson's SAVAGE DOG Is Fan's Best Friend
Follow action movies long enough and you're likely one of the many in line waiting to find out what director Jesse V. Johnson has in store with upcoming ensemble thriller, Triple Threat. That project came in the wake of quite a few announcements highlighting the names of a few directors up to helm the pic while it was Johnson who eventually took it on earlier this year. The film, likely bound for 2018, will mark the latest pairing between Johnson and British actor and martial artist Scott Adkins whose earlier acting career saw their first time together on the set of 2005 action drama, Pit Fighter, led by actor and martial artist Dominique Vandenberg; Avid fans of the genre might also be keen on the point in time in which Vandernberg served as a member of the French Foreign Legion.
Conclusively, Savage Dog, in its arrival, barks an exemplary game and sinks its tooth in sufficiently to warrant the attention it demands. The film opens in limited theaters and on August 4 as well as VoD and iTunes on August 8 with a street date pending for DVDs and Blu-Rays and I wholly welcome true fans and ardent supporters of action cinema to keep the genre above water and buy this movie where and when available.
