Ten years behind bars and mean as a snake … and just as lethal! That’s John Falcon (played pitch-perfect by Nick Principe — Laid to Rest, Madison County, Army of the Damned, etc.) and he’s out — paroled — and doesn’t care what tomorrow brings as long as he gets his revenge on those who put him there!
Well Go USA announced this past week that director Ravi Dhar and scripter John Fallon’s American Muscle will be burning up the home entertainment market place on Sept. 30 with both DVD and Blu-ray product offerings.
The action takes place in the California desert (filmed on location in and around Yucca Valley), so it is the perfect place for mayhem, blood, fire and violence … just a bunch of good ‘ole boys (along with some truly nasty “bitches,” who, by the way, can more than hold their own in any bar fight) havin’ fun.
And right at the top of Falcon’s list is his brother Sam (Todd Farmer — Drive Angry, My Bloody Valentine, Jason X) … and he knows it; it’s the day of reckoning that he’s dreaded and everyone in his crew is expendable when it comes to putting his brother down!
Oh yes, and there’s a woman involved, Darling (played by screen queen Robin Sydney — Evil Bong, Big Bad Wolf, Wicked Lake, Night of the Living Dead 3D: Re-Animation) and ten years has been ten years too long in thinking about her.
American Muscle is style (think: Wild Bunch meets The Terminator as if played out in the alternate-universe of a Twin Peaks), action and wall-to-wall violence at a level that hasn’t been seen of late. John Falcon is on a mission and there are no negotiations and seemingly no amount of “bad guy” power that will deter him from his fatalistic mission.
